From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
Mrs. Moss’s husband is not featured in the book as much as she is. We know that he is a poor man and that Mr. Tulliver never quite approved of the marriage. Mr. Moss is a kind and an honest man and he is willing to try to repay his debts to Mr. Tulliver, even though it will be a great hardship for his family.
