f. specifications of the order: Important!!! I don`t want any writer taking my assignment who doesn`t answer the following requirements:
1) The writer should be closely familiar with George Eliot`s writing since I`m going to need a lot of examples from the very sources., i.e., her novels (namely, I need a close reading of any two novels from the following list: Amos Barton (this one is my preference), Adam Bede, The Mill on the Floss; Felix Holt the Radical , Middlemarch;
2) The writer should be able to look at Eliot`s novels in terms of some contemporary feminist theory/theories( my preference is Julia Kristeva`s feminist theory of language) and to see in what way it/they(the theories) may explain gender ambiguity of Eliot-narrator (this is,of course, a very general description of the direction I want you to follow);
3)The writer should have an access to library/online library sources in order to be able to find the material I`m going to suggest for my paper.
Excerpt From Essay:
Essay Instructions: I need you to write an introduction (5 pages) for the essay (graduate level) that ap plies one of contemporary theories of feminism on any two from the following George Eliot`s novels: Adam Bede, Amos Barton, Middlemarch, The Mill on the Floss or, Felix Holt ,the Radical. My own priority is Julia Kristeva`s feminist theory on language (as having both feminine/semiotic versus male/symbolic features in it). If you`ll find it difficult to apply Kristeva`s theory which ,if I`m not mistaken belongs to the third phase of feminism you may take some other (the first phase feminism was looking at the equallity of language as being universal whereas the second phase of feminist movement was trying to invent some unique female language).
After stating the main points of chosen by you feminist theory , I want you to concentrate on the following aspects(when connecting it with Eliot`s writing): the ambiguity of narrative voice ,being sometimes masculinized, sometimes femininized (as in Amos Barton, for example) and sometimes gender free ;her style/language/choi ce of words...
I also suggest you to use her article "Silly Novels by Lady Novelists" as a way to examine her participation in the discourse of "female author" and to compare it
