Jane Ellen Harrison (1850-1928) was renowned for her work on Greek art and religion. In her application of anthropology to classical studies, she stirred up controversy among her academic colleagues, while, at the same time, influencing many writers, including Yeats, D. H. Lawrence, and Virginia Woolf. This, the first substantial biographical study of Harrison, chronicles the life and work of the first woman in modern England to make a name as a classical scholar, her involvement in controversy throughout her life, and her remarkable influence.
