Eakins has a watershed study here with a narrative that is at once inquisitive, modest, yet authoratative. After going through it you come face-to-face with popular American gender mores brought about by, among other things, our obsession with our junk culture ... and what passes for thought with other researchers.
Yes, it is a study, but it goes quite some way beyond the academic. After reading it and understanding it, it made me realize that interpersonal communication research contributes to literary interpretative criticism. I understood why Henry James's female figures are false, that all of Eliot's ring hollow, that Austin in more than likely on the beam, and that no one understood people in crisis better than Verdi and his librettist Boito.
It's interesting to apply Eakins to the sorry life of Jackson Pollock. If only Ed Harris had consulted with Eakins before he made his movie.
