On a business venture with Bob Jakin, Tom has amassed enough money to pay off Mr. Three nails driven into the head commemorated as many crises in Maggie's nine years of earthly struggle; that luxury of vengeance having been suggested to her by the picture of Jael destroying Sisera in the old Bible. As will happen frequently throughout their lives, Tom coldly holds her carelessness against her for a little while before forgiving her. Deane's employer, and sets him up with lessons in bookkeeping. Philip comes up with his plan to accomplish this as a way to win Maggie back. The first two sections are leisurely and detailed, studded with examples of the comical Dodsons and the minute plotting of the changing relationship between the young Tullivers.

And you should hear her read — straight off, as if she knowed it all beforehand. The Dodson aunts derive much of their grotesque energy from Eliot's close observations of her own mother's sisters, the Pearsons. However, Stephen does not take the rejection well and spirits Maggie away against her will to the next town over. Philip is sad as he assumes that she has never considered the possibility of marrying him and feels that she is the only woman in the world that would overlook his deformity. Philip and Maggie form a strong bond on her visits through mutual intellectual pursuits; a bond that will only strengthen as she becomes a woman.

The mill on the Floss book

Tom becomes angry when Maggie upsets his cowslip wine and punishes her by paying no attention to her when he takes Lucy off to the pond. Inshe met George Henry Lewes. After this Tom and Philip begin to grow apart again. The narrator considers the lives of Maggie and Tom from an adult perspective, both acknowledging and reveling the innocence of youth.

The Mill on the Floss by George Eliot [A Review]

However, he admires Philip's ability to draw and to tell stories of legendary heroes. Tom successfully applies to Mr. She decides to tell the story of what Mr.

Adam Bede was based on the young adulthood of her father, her uncle and her uncle's wife. This translates into their adulthood well when she is not willing to give The mill on the Floss book his approval in order to marry Philip whom she feels she is in love with. Soon she learns from her mother the unexpected news that Mrs.

She plans instead to go away and find work. Moss and demands that he find a way to come up with the money as he does not like the man. The morning of her departure, Philip visits Maggie, and she kindly tells him that she has to leave.

But it is the Dodson aunts who are the real stars of The Mill on the Floss. His property is all to be sold, including Mrs. Tulliver reminds her husband that night that her sister may demand the money back now because of Mr. Glegg, to whom he owes five hundred pounds.

Tulliver has found that the mortgage on his property taken out to repay Mrs. She decides to tell the story of what Mr. Mr Tulliver, the hot-headed miller, is described as finding "the relation between spoken and written language, briefly known as spelling, one of the most puzzling things in this puzzling world", and you only have to glance at the diaries of Eliot's father, Robert Evans, to realise that he too was an uncertain penman.

Stephen arrives and is surprised to find that Maggie is tall and beautiful. Tom returns home triumphantly but becomes upset again when he hears what has transpired that evening. I hope that Middlemarch will be more enjoyable but that may be unrealistic.

This device of an adult looking back fondly to childhood crystalizes one of the main themes of the book - nostalgia. But when Mrs. On the way home alone, Mr. Social disapproval of her actions spilled over into commentary on the novel, and it was scathingly criticized because it did not present a clear drama of right and wrong.

Of course, she agrees and a year passes with the two meeting regularly in the woods. Tulliver meets Wakem in the street, and the two get into a fight. In real life this reunion of brother and sister never took place.

Glegg suggests that they should sue her and at this Tom interjects, saying that his father told him that the Mosses should never be forced to pay off the loan. Maggie is in a bad mood because Tom has been favoring Lucy all morning, as she accidentally knocked over his house of cards.

He has just saved up enough money to pay the debts when he discovers that Maggie has been meeting Philip and that they have declared their love for one another. The coming-of-age tale of the Tulliver children is both objective and subjective, portraying its hero and heroine in their emotional reality while exposing the childlike nature they will soon grow out of.The Mill on the Floss is, by George Eliot's own admission, her most autobiographical work.

In writing the novel, Eliot is looking back at her own childhood - fictionalized through Maggie's experiences - from an adult's perspective. LitCharts assigns a color and icon to each theme in The Mill on the Floss, which you can use to track the themes throughout the work.
