Example text

The process of ‘conversion’ was a long one, but some of its effects were doubtless immediate: an alchemy of change (producing ultimately the mediaeval) was at once at work. One does not have to wait until all the native traditions of the older world have been replaced or forgotten; for the minds which still retain them are changed, and the memories viewed in a different perspective: at once they become more ancient and remote, and in a sense darker. 4 The native ‘learning’ cannot be denied in the case of Beowulf.

And was that earlier “self” any more “real” or any more commendable than the self she is now “casting aside”? At first glance, this passage seems to critique Léonce’s shortsightedness and to endorse Edna’s transformation, but, on second or third glance, the significance of the passage is far less clear. Few, if any, of the other characters in the novel are wholly sympathetic to the changes Edna begins to exhibit.
