A unique study of how novels by Lawrence, Forster and George Eliot can be read as rewritings of Sophocles's Antigone : each is presented as a socially and sexually involving argument between two sisters. The author provides an interconnected case-study where each text works on the hidden meanings of the other. Female sexuality, expressed through the language of duality (vulnerability, frustration, submission and destructivity, consummation and rebirth), becomes an ideal vehicle for crossing the barriers between sexes and between societies, as between the texts themselves.

About the Author:

Masako Hirai is Professor in the English Department at Kobe University in Nishinomiya, Japan.

Review:

'Admirably done, extremely perceptive and very well written. The connections she finds between novels under discussion are genuine, and illuminating, and her book will be of interest to all who value as central to the English novel tradition the works of George Elliot, E.M. Forster and D.H. Lawrence.' - Sir Frank Kermode
