I'm pretty sure it's indifference. Every sentence in almost all the paragraphs, especially the last one began with, or included "Gluck said/thinks/feels" ... the author was incredibly diligent about not taking a position on the matter. I also looked up "tacit" in the dictionary, and to be honest, it would be hard in LSAT land to see how there could be tacit approval in an RC passage, especially given the definition of tacit.

JSIA.

We're done!!!

Well, zen, I hope you are right..cuz i put indifference, too. But I do think it was tacit now. Our choice was distanced indifference or something like that. And though the author never says waht he/she thinks, it's kind of implied that she supports Gluck, though I can't recall if the choice was tacit acceptance or tacit endorsement.

Yes, but the simple act of writing about a woman who breaks the gender roles of feminist poetry would suggest that the author does indeed approve of her and somewhat respects her work.

I think that "it seemed like she agree with Gluck" because we, as readers agreed with Gluck, but I did not find one word that would lead me to believe that the author believed Gluck. Tacit acceptance, with no key words or clues is just too mysterious for LSAT thought...

Yeh, but if the author is indifferent why would she be writing about it? Although I did put that. But the first thing I did when I got home was look up exactly what tacit means in Webster's/

I think its tacit acceptance, she indirectly accepts GLUCKs whatever by writing about it, showing its meaningful :dunno:

I think it's tacit approval just because of the way the passage is set up--it is unbalanced on the side of providing information about Gluck. "Detached" indifference, I think, would have to be more overtly indicated rather than "tacit," which by definition is silently understood.
