Modernism, metaphysics, and sexuality.


Modernism, metaphysics, and sexuality.

Raschke, Debrah.

Susquehanna Univ. Press


240 pages




As post-structuralist discussions have revealed, the structure of metaphysics has depended on a binary structure that allots truth to the masculine and untruth to the feminine, points out Raschke (English, Southeast Missouri State U.). In this light, she reinterprets modernism by linking two of its key themes: epistemological questioning, and the shifting terms of the sex/gender debate. Among the authors she examines are Conrad, Forster, Lawrence, and Woolf. Distributed in the US by Associated University Presses.
