In one sense, there is the suggestion that the female protagonists,whose quests clash with their social conditions, have to settle for this resolution because their desires can never be fulfilled. This incompleteness, which accounts for the pessimistic atmosphere of the novel as well, drives from the conditions women find themselves in. Hence, Rosamond who occupies the place of the mother will be unworthy of the moral center of the novel.
The motherless characters such as Dorothea, on the other hand, areaffiliated with the place of a real absence, through religion. George Eliot presents two sets of contrasting female characters that reveal the kind of feminity that deserves the marital happiness in her novels.
Lamenting the wasted lives of women, she suggests that many Theresas are born without achieving or founding anything. St Theresa is known as the founder of a Catholic order, Discalcated Carmalites, she was an author, a reformer, and a theologian. Dorothea yearns to do something, she is not content with the life of a gentlewoman but her desire is never specified throughout the novel.
Similar options that were available to St Theresa are available to Dorothea, too, but shedecidedly avoids these courses. She does not support the reform movement in which her uncle,Mr. Brooke, is involved for example. When Mr. Indeed, her views or religion are vague. When Ladislaw wants her to be explicit about her religion, she says that she does not want a name for her beliefs Still she does not associate herself with the Methodists, when an example is nearby in the character of Mr.
Unlike St Theresa, she never intends to write her own book or work for a specific religious purpose. Her one specified wish of activity is helpingMr. Causabon with his writing in the position of secretary, which ends indisappointed when Causabon does not let her into what is actually his futile work. She gets the position of secretary in the end, when she marries Ladislaw but this life is offered as one that she must settle for when her fulfillment is not possible within the given conditions.
Her uneasiness and dissatisfactionwith the life of a gentlewoman and her craving to do something that is never explained or specified implies that even though George Eliot associates her with St Theresa, her desire is not of the same order.
These wishes connect her uneasiness and dissatisfaction to desire and her feminity. The statute of St Theresa figures in Lacan and Irigaray as a matter of dispute over desire and subjectivity. Lacan interprets the statute as expression of female joissance Lacan, For Irigaray, within the present imaginary, women cannot express their desire and become subjects of the desire as they are placed as objects of male desire. This is a one-sexsexual economy that does not recognize the female sex as different, as another sexuality and form of desire.

In this economy, women cannot find satisfaction becausethey are not allowed the place of thesubject and the only viable existence, place is that of the mother. Objects to themselves, never distinguished from the mother, subjectivity is a confusing, problematic issue for the female sex. For Irigaray, house is closely connected to language and desire. Her wish to build cottages for the villagers implies her desire to establish an alternative community for herself as well.
Her want of doing justice to Aunt Julia by giving her share of the inheritance to Ladislaw causes a crisis in her marriage. Dorothea is motherless. For Irigaray, the relationship with the mother, the first object of desire is problematic for women because it is posited as a desire that must be given up and renounced to achieve what is described as healthy, normal feminity. This identification places women in the position of object without any means to regulate and represent their relation to the mother and desire.
Dorothea lacks the object of desire and she cannot identify with this object. Dorothea turns to religion to fill the gap, in her vain desire for a union with the mother, which is a real absence that she must come to terms with. For Irigaray, God and mother both signify the same abyss, the same lack that stands for desire.
Dorothea cannot find fulfillment because religion offers a phantasmal union that hides the fact that she must come to terms with the lack of the mother. In one sense, Dorothea and St Theresa coincide in their lack of a language that represents their desire and allows them a subject position. It is a desire that takes Dorothea to Ladislaw via his grandmother, Julia.

In contrast to Dorothea, Rosamond exemplifies the version of subjectivity that contents with her place in the male economy of desire where she must act the feminity that is a spectacle, and object for the male gaze. Like Gwendolen in Daniel Deronda, Rosamond embodies the womanhood that views marriage as the ultimate goal in her life and finds satisfaction in being the object of male adoration.
Rosamond accepts her status as an object and displaysa feminity as a performance for others to watch and admire.
