It has taken me ages to read this fairly short little book. It has been weighing heavily on my mind, and yet I haven't been able to concentrate on it fully. Non-fiction has never agreed with me when stressed, and apparently Eliot is no exception to this rule in spite of my eternal love for her writing.

The titular essay in "Silly Novels" is by far the best. In it Eliot discusses the ridiculous amount of female novels in the romantic era; the sensation novelist writing about a beautiful main character who falls in love with a duke under drastic circumstances.
Eliot argues that the many silly novels give a bad name to the female novelist in general, making it impossible for the actual talented female writers to get recognition for their work and therefore forcing them to take on a pseudonym (as Eliot in fact did herself).

The remaining essays are very period-specific, focusing on a particular work and making it hard for the modern reader who perhaps haven't read all of the novels which are being discussed by Eliot. I did however find the essay comparing Margaret Fuller to Mary Wollstonecraft very interesting as well.

All in all – an interesting little collection of essays, but very dated and very specific. Sometimes even limited in their very Victorian outlook on the world.
