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 Woolfs novels, this book examines Forsters queered use of fantasy, Sinclairs representation of manly genius in both male and female streams of consciousness, and Lawrences quest for the novel of phallic consciousness. Reading each authors 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.
