E) ! because it is clear that the author compares novels

E.

It would be nice if the crux of the SC is not divulged in the post header so that the real GMAT feel is not lost.

I got it as E.

A, B and C are ruled out simply because there is no "Apple to Apple" comparison.
D is dangerously parallel but distorts the meaning. The construction "modern feminist who derives much of her strength from rejection of an oppressive home" looks wrong and at the same time the novels derive strength NOT the author.

So, E is the best..

A) Unlike modern feminism, which derives much of its strength from rejection of an oppressive home, Marietta Holley in her novels
B) Unlike the modern feminist who derives much of her strength from rejection of an oppressive home, Marietta Holleyâ€™ s novels
C)Unlike modern feminism, deriving much of its strength from rejection of an oppressive home, Marietta Holleyâ€™s novels
D) Unlike those of the modern feminist who derives much of her strength from rejectionof an oppressive home, novels of Marietta Holley
E) Unlike those of modern feminism, which derive much of their strength from rejection of an oppressive home, Marietta Holleyâ€™ s novels

(E).. Last time I got it wrong...

Both (D) and (E) are grammatically correct..
(D): Unlike those of the modern feminist who derives much of her strength from rejectionof an oppressive home, novels of Marietta Holley...

derives: correctly modifies Singular Feminist.

(E): Unlike those of modern feminism, which derive much of their strength from rejection of an oppressive home, Marietta Holleyâ€™ s novels...

those: novels
which: novels

But if we see the meaning carefully, (D) is talking about a particular feminist.
However, in actual sentence (i.e. original underlines sentence..) author wants to convey that "modern novels derive their strength from opressive home. (E) clearly conveys this meaning.

OA is E.
forrestgump,
I know this has been posted before - In GMAT club it is ok to post it again if it has not been discussed in the past three weeks. This is done in the hope that we get better clarification than from the discussion before and also give a chance for newbies to try to answer it afresh rather than to just look at an earlier discussion. I hope you agree ...

See the sticky: "Request reg posting OA and Links to previous explaination" http://www.gmatclub.com/phpbb/viewtopic ... d1ca922062

My answer is D...."those of the modern feminist" refers correctly to "novels of Marietta Holley"...where those = novels and modern feminist = Marietta Holley.
