Essay Topics

Write an essay for ONE of the following topics:

Essay Topic 1

How does Maggie's childhood relationship with Tom foreshadow the relationship she has with him as an adult? Compare Tom's tendency to alternately indulge and shame Maggie as a child with the way he treats her as an adult, when he interferes in her relationships with men. Support your answer with examples from the novel.

Essay Topic 2

Analyze the theme of loss in the The Mill on the Floss. The narrator's history of St. Ogg's indicates that floods are not unusual, and that often floods sweep away everything in their path. The townspeople, then, must have some history of dealing with loss. When else does the topic of loss come up? Explain how this theme is developed in the course of the novel.

Essay Topic 3

Do you think that Maggie is better off ending up with Philip, with Stephen, or with neither? Defend your perspective. Be sure to include evidence from The Mill on the Floss to support your case.
