This position is foundational to one of the pivotal readings of modernism.

Simultaneously, economic, legal, and political shifts that occurred during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries produced real material changes pertaining to the status of women. Thus, as many others have adeptly argued, modernism is also a crisis in gender. Modernism, Metaphysics, and Sexuality keenly suggests that these narratives--the thinking of what constitutes truth and the rethinking of gender--are intertwined.

Interpreting Conrads Heart of Darkness and Victory, Forsters A Passage to India and Maurice, Lawrences Women in Love, and Woolfs A Room of Ones Own and To the Lighthouse through Luce Irigarays rereading of western metaphysics, Raschke suggests that where there is a crisis in knowing there is also a crisis in gender.

One invariably accompanies the other. Debrah Raschke is Associate Professor of English at Southeast Missouri State University.
