Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)
This dissertation examines similarities between the works of E. M. Forster (A Room with a View, A Passage to India) and Eudora Welty (“Powerhouse,” Delta Wedding). This study focuses on three areas: the importance of a sense of place for both writers, their nuanced critiques of racism and other intolerances, and their subtle, yet inherently modernist philosophies and methodologies. This dissertation also argues that both writers deserve a prominent place in the modernist literary canon.
