Abstract
The aim of this essay is to examine in what ways fiction is used as a forum for discussing female intellectuality in George Eliot's Middlemarch and Dorothy L. Sayers' Gaudy Night. Comparing two works from such different genres as the Victorian novel and the detective novel, the study deals with the novels' treatment of education for women, the depiction of intellectual women, and the discussion of the opposition of intellectual and emotional interests.
