Journal Entry 1 by wingLirewing from Aachen, Nordrhein-Westfalen Germany on Friday, July 23, 2021
Stinging, entertaining and deeply lucid, George Eliot parodies the clichéd novels that dominated the sales charts of his time, with their charming and beautiful heroines, and their predictable and sugary endings. Without hindrance, without reservations imposed by the social and cultural conventions of his time, with a fierce sarcasm and the intellectual acuity that is his own, George Eliot passes relentless bill in the silly novels of certain novelist ladies to the mistakes of the most rampant narrative of some famous writers of their time. In what was her most famous essay, whose subject continues to arouse controversy in our days, the brilliant English author presents her theses with a touch of irony from representative examples of predictable arguments, falsified characters, imitated styles and dialogues implausible that certain novelist ladies put at the service of their moralizing, prosaic or, directly, boastful claims.
