In 1867 she wrote to her friend Maria Congreve about Comte's intellectual influence: 'My gratitude increases continually for the illumination Comte has contributed to my life' (SL, p. 325). Eliot's husband recorded that almost at the end of her life: 'During her illness I read aloud ... Comte .... For all Comte's writing she had a feeling of high admiration, intense interest, and very deep sympathy' (LIFE, p. 620). That interest and sympathy dated back to the 1840s, Eliot's loss of orthodox Christian faith and the beginning of her intellectual reputation.
The very brief discussion, in chapter 1 above, of the way in which even the verisimilic detail of names may be linked to an emblematic tradition illustrates this; and the explication of an almost random reference indicates a similar artistic fineness. 49). This is not an arrogant display of the author's learning. Particularly at that time she might have expected her readers to have some knowledge of the Old Testament, and understand that Rehoboam was the son of Solomon who, becoming king after his father's death, ignored good advice and became a tyrant, announcing to his subjects: 'My father made your yoke heavy, and I will add to your yoke: my father also chastised you with whips, but I will chastise you with scorpions' (I Kings XII, 14).

The inadequacies manifested by the 'fair writers' were in themselves partly a result of class factors. Eliot argued: Where there is one woman who writes from necessity, we believe there are three women who write from vanity; and, besides, there is something so antiseptic in the mere healthy fact of working for one's bread, that the most trashy and rotten kind of feminine literature is not likely to have been produced under such circumstances.
