about

Eliot juxtaposed evolution theories and the classical tradition in order to critique civilization, its origins, and its belief in progress. This cultural, feminist study examines how Eliot was trapped between the idea of evolution as a unifying project and the reality of his own and his cultureOs hierarchical assumptions of gender, religion, race, and class. It explores how this conflict undermined EliotOs mission of unity and influenced his (and ModernismOs) place in history.
