"The Mill on the Floss is a novel by George Eliot (Mary Ann Evans), first published in 1860. Brought up at Dorlcote Mill, Maggie Tulliver worships her brother Tom and is desperate to win the approval of her parents, but her passionate, wayward nature and her fierce intelligence bring her into constant conflict with her family. As she reaches adulthood, the clash between their expectations and her desires is painfully played out as she finds herself torn between her relationships with three very different men: her proud and stubborn brother, a close friend who is also the son of her family's worst enemy, and a charismatic but dangerous suitor. ----- Mary Ann Evans (1819 - 1880), alternatively Mary Anne or Marian, known by her pen name George Eliot, was an English novelist, poet, journalist, translator and one of the leading writers of the Victorian era. She wrote seven novels, most of which are set in provincial England and known for their realism and psychological insight. She wanted to escape the stereotype of women's writing being limited to lighthearted romances. Another factor in her use of a pen name may have been a desire to shield her private life from public scrutiny."
