About this book


This book offers a critique of traditional Eliot biography and criticism that has interpreted the author in terms of essentialist notions about gender. Kristin Brady then offers a feminist reading of Eliot's life by considering the ways in which it uncovers splits within patriarchal ideologies. Finally, she analyses Eliot's writing, offering dynamic new readings of many of Eliot's texts.
