Eliot’s intellectual observation and reasoning are of par excellence. She is more interested in the inner drama of her characters than the outer actions. She moves in the depths of mind and heart and thus draws her characters inside out. Therefore, her major characters are not formed, like Dickens’ and Thackeray’s; rather they develop with the story, as a reader gets familiar with them.

Her novels deal with “moral conflict” she goes into the obscure and mysterious depths of human nature and brings out the spiritual conflicts and moral disorders, which cause the run and downfall of an individual. All her tragedies are caused by some moral lapse and Eliot shows, how the slightest

moral weakness, slowly brings the individual to bear his own fate within his own self.
