Description

Eliot, Schreiner, Woolf, and Lessing are among the women writers of the British tradition whose work reveals a debt to Schopenhauer's theory of the will and his aesthetic concepts. This is an examination of the work of these four authors reconsidering a hitherto neglected influence on them.

Contents

George Eliot's "Middlemarch" - a Schopenhauerian Shadowplay; George Eliot's "Daniel Deronda" - a study in Schopenhauerian morality. "A Strivng and a Striving" - Schopenhauerian pessimism in Olive Schreiner's "The Story of an African Farm" and "From Man to Man"; Virginia Woolf, Bloomsbury aesthetics, and Schopenhauer; Doris Lessing's "Children of Violence" - the Schopenhauerian education of Martha Quest; Doris Lessing's "The Fifth Child" - the will personified.
