Discover George Eliot’s powerful tragedy about the struggle between head and heart.
Maggie and Tom Tulliver are both wilful, passionate children, and their relationship has always been tempestous. As they grow up together on the banks of the River Floss, Tom’s self-righteous stubborness and Maggie’s emotional intensity increasingly brings them into conflict, particularly when Maggie’s beauty sparks some ill-fated attachments. George Eliot’s story of a brother and sister bound together by their errors and affections is told with tenderness, energy and a profound understanding of human nature.
