Was just thinking of the way Eliot empathizes with the plight of Lil apropos of her husband’s treatment of her, as well as Eliot’s depiction of the agony and travail of the rich lady in the opening section of A Game of Chess. In the Prufrock volume too there’re moving images of women from the low class whose life is no better than “sparrows in the gutters.” Does make a case for Eliot as a feminist.

A welcome comment. Wish there was some elaboration vis-a-vis The Waste Land.
