it was amazing

Daniel Deronda is the rare male protagonist who is self-aware, mature, and searching. He's probably the most admirable male character I've read in a novel. But Eliot doesn't just write about saints; a lead female character, for example, undergoes a brilliantly described, painful learning curve as she comes becomes acquainted with Daniel and comes to understand that his motives are far superior to hers.

Mike Uh, when did self-aware and searching male protagonists become rare? I'm looking at my shelves and seeing Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, Marilynne Robinson, Camus, Joyce, hell, even Raymond Chandler novels that feature admirable dudes. You've read too much Jane Austen, H.
