Regenerating the Novel: Gender and Genre in Woolf, Forster, Sinclair and Lawrence
Psychology Press, 2003 - 178 oldal
"In this exploration of the most innovative and iconoclastic modernist fiction, James J. Miracky studies the ways in which cultural forces and discourses of gender inflect the practice and theory of four British novelists: Virginia Woolf, E. M. Forster, May Sinclair, and D. H. Lawrence. Building on analyses of gender theory and formal innovation in Virginia Woolf's novels, this book examines Forster's "queered" use of fantasy, Sinclair's representation of "manly genius" in both male and female streams of consciousness, and Lawrence's quest for the novel of "phallic consciousness." Reading each author's fiction alongside his or her theoretical writing, Miracky provides four diverse examples of how literary modernism wrestled with the "gender crisis" of the early twentieth century." --
