    Not really, by the time she became a novelist she already had more clout in the lit world than most men, it is why she wrote under a pseudonym.

      Or a would-be troon, had she been born in the modern day.

      You're missing the point of his excerpt, bozo.

        She was just ugly. Ugly women have a different perspective than most women. You may think it causes them to be “masculine” or have masculine interests or try to please men or whatever, but really it just makes them care less about femininity since they’re ugly and there’s nothing they can do about it (unless they delude themselves and refuse to admit to themselves that they are ugly, which obviously Eliot didn’t do).

          You're still missing the point of the excerpt. In the excerpt, she attacks female writers. Belittles and mocks them. In so doing, whether she would say so or no, she is trying to endear herself to a certain sort of male readership--i.e., seeking validation from men.

            Yes. And makes a point to say Lady Novelists--in other words, these flaws are particular to women. Stop seeing only what you want to see and see what is there, buffoon.

            Why do you think you know her intention?

            It's called induction. Word choice is everything. Are you an ESL or what?

            She was just shitting on the YA novelists of her time, she was appealing to anyone with a brain.

            Which would have been, in those days, a predominantly educated male readership and her peerage, undoubtedly, overwhelmingly male. Are you guys seriously this moronic? You can't inferentially realize the environment into which she would be dropping this?

            You will never be a woman, though.
            Screech all you want about Eliot being a “pick me” or whatever feminazi buzzword you like.

            It’s an abduction and its a garbage inference since the only reason you think this is because of your biases

        No, you are just a moron. At that time in the novel’s history it was not really a serious form, hence the name, they were novelties written by ladies of leisure for other ladies of leisure to escape their dreary lives through frivolous stories. The novel at that time was literally daytime soap opera which no one of any taste would defend for any reason.

        You are trying to use your own ignorance and stupidity as bait.

          To continue this.

          At the time Eliot started writing she was already a major name in literary circles for criticism and reviews, she had major clout and could kill a career before it even started, male or female. This is why she wrote under a pseudonym, she wanted reviews of her work to be fair and not just revenge and ass kissing, she took a male name because an unknown female writer would be assumed to be writing the frivolous novelties that were in vogue.

          Despite being terrible these soap opera novels are what made the novel a serious form and the dominate form of literature in the west, it built the readership base and the novel is what it is primarily because of women reading absolute garbage.

          HAHAHAHA!!! I never could have imagined this level of cope. You, really truly, are a bozo. I'm glad it was the first time I used the insult. It is now your name, Bozo.

            Ohno, a moron anonymously called me a bozo! How will I live it down!

            It is historical fact, where the name 'novel' originates from and what moved long-form prose fiction from niche to the dominate from. Well documented and very difficult to deny short of delusional copes.

    >pick-me
    I only ever see this term used as the female equivalent of "uncle tom", for the same purpose of attacking whoever tries to find common ground with the eternal enemy instead of being another a crab in the bucket. Other posters are right to mock you for asserting her attacking a type of woman writer means that she is attacking woman writers collectively or because they are women.
