Set in nineteenth-century England, this great novel of domestic realism sympathetically portrays a young woman's vain efforts to adapt to her provincial world. Maggie Tulliver, whose father owns a mill perched on the banks of the River Floss, is intelligent and imaginative beyond the understanding of her community, her relatives, and particularly her brother Tom. Despite their opposite temperaments, Maggie and Tom are united by a strong bond. But this bond suffers when Tom's sense of family honor leads him to forbid her to associate with the one friend who appreciates her intelligence and imagination. Later, when Maggie falls in love with the handsome and passionate fiancé of her cousin and is caught in a compromising situation, she fears her relationship with Tom may never recover.… (més)

Here's what I wrote after reading in 1990: "Reportedly autobiographical, the story of a yong girl, young woman growing up in rural Victorian England. Maggie Tulliver, intelligent, strong-willed, and loving faces family misfortune bravely and endures. The carelessness of others, however, bring her to ruin and, eventually, death." ( )

Reading George Eliot is anxiolytic. Sure — it can be overly sentimental for overly long stretches that seem to repeat themselves over and over again; the plot can be ridiculously improbable (the ending — my god!); and sometimes Eliot's philosophy gets a little too didactic and veers a little too close to a humanist reduction of Christian love ressentiment (in this book especially). But there is no author who describes people and the forces that drive them better than George Eliot: there is no author who makes me feel more pathos, more significance of my role in this strange little drama we're all enacting. And she is outrageously funny. The scenes with the Dodson sisters and their families recall Kafka at his funniest and most cutting — if Kafka had been birthed and reared in provincial 19th century England. Nothing cheers me up like George Eliot. ( )

It sympathetically portrays the vain efforts of Maggie Tulliver to adapt to her provincial world. The tragedy of her plight is underlined by the actions of her brother Tom, whose sense of family honour leads him to forbid her to associate with the one friend who appreciates her intelligence and imagination. When she is caught in a compromising situation, Tom renounces her altogether, but brother and sister are reconciled in the end as they try in vain to survive a climactic flood. ( )

Not entirely sure what to think. Probably too much content was chopped from it to really enjoy it. ( )

Spoiler... best last lines.

“The boat reappeared—but brother and sister had gone down in embrace never to be parted: living through again in one supreme moment, the days when they had clasped their little hands in love, and roamed the daisied fields together.” ( )

A wide plain, where the broadening Floss hurries on between its green banks to the sea, and the loving tide, rushing to meet it, checks its passage with an impetuous embrace. On this mighty tide the black ships -laden with the fresh-scented fir-planks, with rounded sacks of oil-bearing seed, or with the dark glitter of coal—are borne along to the town of St. Ogg's, which shows its aged, fluted red roofs and the broad gables of its wharves between the low wooded hill and the river-brink, tingeing the water with a soft purple hue under the transient glance of this February sun. Far away on each hand stretch the rich pastures, and the patches of dark earth made ready for the seed of broad-leaved green crops, or touched already with the tint of the tender-bladed autumn-sown corn. There is a remnant still of last year's golden clusters of beehive-ricks rising at intervals beyond the hedgerows; and everywhere the hedgerows are studded with trees; the distant ships seem to be lifting their masts and stretching their red-brown sails close among the branches of the spreading ash. Just by the red-roofed town the tributary Ripple flows with a lively current into the Floss. How lovely the little river is, with its dark changing wavelets! It seems to me like a living companion while I wander along the bank, and listen to its low, placid voice, as to the voice of one who is deaf and loving. I remember those large dipping willows. I remember the stone bridge.
Citacions

Such things as these are the mother-tongue of our imagination, the language that is laden with all the subtle, inextricable associations the fleeting hours of our childhood left behind them. Our delight in the sunshine on the deep-bladed grass to-day might be no more than the faint perception of wearied souls, if it were not for the sunshine and the grass in the far-off years which still live in us, and transform our perception into love.
There is no feeling, except the extremes of fear and grief, that does not find relief in music.
