Directions for questions 3 to 6: Read the passage and then determine the best choice for an answer from the questions given below. Base your choice on what this passage states directly or implies, not on any information you may have got from elsewhere. "The emancipation of women", James Joyce told one of his friends, "has caused the greatest revolution in our time." Other modernists agree: Virginia Woolf, claiming that in about 1910 "human character changed" and illustrating the new balance between the sexes, urged, "Read the 'Agamemon' and see whether your sympathies are not almost entirely with Clytemnestra". D.H. Lawrence wrote "perhaps the deepest fight for 200 years and more has been the fight for womens independence". But if modernist writers considered women's revolt against men's domination as one of' their "greatest" and "deepest" themes, only recently, perhaps in the past 15 years has literary criticism begun to catch up with it.
