The purpose of the present research is to analyze the contents of the text with a thick descriptive method. Maggie’s character is evaluated within the paradigm of Victorian socialization as it is a necessary element of understanding the psychological dimensions of her growth into a woman. She is the heroine of George Eliot’s modern novel, Mill on the Floss, which is considered by many to be the forerunner of the modern psychological novel. The way females define their personalities during their encounters with the environment and its inhabitants are clearly seen in multifarious aspects of Maggie’s development.
