I *alter*, when I alteration find
Except for that whole boring romance-with-Will-Ladislaw part, and the weird 19th century sexism (actually, in spite of that), Dorothea Brooke is my idol. I am beginning to suspect that an inability to write realistically is part of the George Eliot style, as it is evident in both Middlemarch and (more understandably) Silas Marner. All the same. Dorothea is the most inspiring character I've ever read about in fiction. I can't get over how intensely cool she is (albeit in an unrealistic and idol-like way).

Oooh, you're making me want to read George Eliot. Don't do that. I have far too many books on my booklist as it is.

Ah, me too. But it is well worth pushing a few aside for a while. At least--it was for me. Due solely to Dorothea.
