TWO BOOKS IN ONEThe Mill on the Floss is considered George Eliot’s most autobiographical novel; it is a poignant and beautifully written novel that explores the complexities of family, love, and societal expectations. Immerse yourself in this timeless tale of resilience and self-discovery.As the headstrong Maggie Tulliver grows into womanhood, the deep love which she has for her brother Tom turns into conflict, because she cannot reconcile his bourgeois standards with her own lively intelligence. This story shows the ambiguity in which moral choice is subjected to the hypocrisy of the Victorian age.Adam Bede is an historical novel, the story takes place in Hayslope in 1799 - Hayslope is a rural town with a close-knit community. The novel revolves around a love rectangle among the beautiful but self-absorbed Hetty Sorrel; Captain Arthur Donnithorne, the young squire who seduces her; Adam Bede, her unacknowledged suitor; and Dinah Morris, Hetty’s cousin, a fervent, virtuous and beautiful Methodist lay preacher. Adam is in love with Hetty, but she is in love with Arthur. After having an affair with Arthur, Hetty finds herself pregnant - but preceeding events lead her to carry out an act which has tragic consequences for her.
