Read full description of the books Las novelas tontas de ciertas damas novelistas:

Punzante, entretenidísima y profundamente lúcida, George Eliot parodia las tópicas novelas que dominaban los listados de ventas de su tiempo, con sus encantadoras y hermosas heroínas, y sus previsibles y azucarados finales.
Sin cortapisas, sin reservas impuestas por los convencionalismos sociales y culturales de su tiempo, con un sarcasmo feroz y la agudeza intelectual que le es propia, George Eliot pasa implacable factura en Las novelas tontas de ciertas damas novelistas a los desaciertos de la narrativa más ramplona de algunas afamadas escritoras de su época. En el que fuera su ensayo más célebre, cuyo tema sigue despertando polémica en nuestros días, la genial autora inglesa plantea sus tesis con un toque de ironía a partir de ejemplos representativos de los argumentos predecibles, los personajes falseados, los estilos remedados y los diálogos inverosímiles que ciertas damas novelistas pusieron al servicio de sus pretensiones moralizantes, prosaicas o, directamente, jactanciosas.

Ebook Las novelas tontas de ciertas damas novelistas read Online! In 1819, novelist George Eliot (nee Mary Ann Evans), was born at a farmstead in Nuneaton, Warwickshire, England, where her father was estate manager. Mary Ann, the youngest child and a favorite of her father's, received a good education for a young woman of her day. Influenced by a favorite governess, she became a religious evangelical as an adolescent. Her first published work was a religious poem. Through a family friend, she was exposed to Charles Hennell's An Inquiry into the Origins of Christianity. Unable to believe, she conscientiously gave up religion and stopped attending church. Her father shunned her, sending the broken-hearted young dependent to live with a sister until she promised to reexamine her feelings. Her intellectual views did not, however, change. She translated David Strauss' Das Leben Jesu, a monumental task, without signing her name to the 1846 work. After her father's death in 1849, Mary Ann traveled, then accepted an unpaid position with The Westminster Review. Despite a heavy workload, she translated Ludwig Feuerbach's The Essence of Christianity, the only book ever published under her real name. That year, the shy, respectable writer scandalized British society by sending notices to friends announcing she had entered a free "union" with George Henry Lewes, editor of The Leader, who was unable to divorce his first wife. They lived harmoniously together for the next 24 years, but suffered social ostracism and financial hardship. She became salaried and began writing essays and reviews for The Westminster Review. Renaming herself "Marian" in private life and adopting the nom de plume "George Eliot," she began her impressive fiction career, including: Adam Bede (1859), The Mill on the Floss (1860), Silas Marner (1861), Romola (1863), and Middlemarch (1871). Themes included her humanist vision and strong heroines. Her poem, "O May I Join the Choir Invisible" expressed her views about non supernatural immortality: "O may I join the choir invisible/ Of those immortal dead who live again/ In minds made better by their presence. . ." D. 1880.

Her 1872 work Middlemarch has been described by Martin Amis and Julian Barnes as the greatest novel in the English language.
