The Tunnel
The Tunnel | Dorothy Richardson
1 post | 2 read | 1 to read
The Tunnel is the fourth volume in Dorothy Richardsons novel series Pilgrimage. The series, set in the years 1893-1912, chronicles the life of Miriam Henderson, a New Woman rejecting the Victorian ideals of femininity and domesticity in favour of a modern life of independence. In addition to the formal and stylistic innovations in The Tunnel, its attention to womens experience of modernity is groundbreaking. It chronicles Miriams working day as a dental receptionist and her forays into the public space of cafs, city streets, and political and intellectual talks. Richardson matches her focus on Miriams consciousness with remarkable detail, giving the narrative a powerful realism. Contemporary reviews (including those by Virginia Woolf and Katherine Mansfield), personal letters, and Richardsons essays on modernism, feminism, and aesthetics place this important novel in context.

I am moving. Again. I have been in my current rent-stabilized apartment only since Feb 2018, but it turned out to be a sh*thole--persistent pest problems and water damage in the kitchen wall with the paint bubbling and festering for 5 months. The management company only fixed it after I filed a complaint with the city. But, I won a housing lottery and am moving to a rent-stabilized unit in a brand new luxury building next week! #GimmeShelter

Liz_M The tagged book is relevant because I was reading it at the same time I was looking at the new apartment and the novel opens with the main character viewing/moving into a rented room. 6mo
