Tues 5 Sep, Stamford Theatre talks
BY GEORGE ELIOT
Come and meet the passionate, imaginative Maggie Tulliver who fights against the 19thC expectations of ‘womanhood’ in narrow-minded rural England. Often thought to be a self-portrait of Eliot herself, Maggie longs for the education denied her and her battle to ‘grow herself’ is only resolved in the most dramatic way.
With BBC film at 2.30pm
