Childs, Donald J.:

Modernism and Eugenics: Woolf, Eliot, Yeats, and the Culture of Degeneration - hardcover

ISBN: 9780521806015

[ED: Hardcover], [PU: CAMBRIDGE UNIV PR], In Modernism and Eugenics, Donald Childs shows how Virginia Woolf, T. S. Eliot, and W. B. Yeats believed in eugenics, the science of race improvement, and adapted this scientific discourse to the language and purposes of the modern imagination. Childs traces the impact of the eugenics movement on such modernist works as Mrs Dalloway, A Room of One's Own, The Waste Land, and Yeats's late poetry and early plays. The language of eugenics moves, he claims, between public discourse and personal perspectives. It informs Woolf's theorisation of woman's imagination in Eliot's poetry, it pictures as a nightmare the myriad contemporary eugenical threats to humankind's biological and cultural future. And for Yeats, it becomes integral to his engagement with the occult and his commitment to Irish Nationalism. This is an original study of a controversial theme which reveals the centrality of eugenics in the life and work of several major modernist writers. Table of contents: Introduction 1. Virginia Woolf's hereditary taint 2. Boers, whores, and Mongols 3. Body and biology in A Room of One's Own 4. Eliot on biology and birthrates 5. To breed or not to breed: the Eliot question 6. Fatal fertility in The Waste Land 7. The late eugenics of W. B. Yeats 8. Yeats and stirpiculture 9. Yeats and The Sexual Question Notes Index. Donald Childs shows how Woolf, Eliot, and Yeats believed in eugenics, the science of race improvement, and adapted this scientific discourse to the language of the modern imagination. He traces the impact of eugenics on such modernist works as Mrs Dalloway, The Waste Land, and Yeats's late poetry and plays.
