Following the lives of siblings Maggie and Tom Tulliver over a period of fifteen years, this is one of Elliot's most celebrated novels, frequently cited as one of the more tragic in the English language. The main focus of the novel is the relationship between the two siblings, and also with the relationships - both platonic and romantic - of Maggie, the protagonist.
