Slide 1

    Lives of empty habit
    - eliot believes that human activity based on habit= waste of time- aunt helen stood for certain values/mannerisms that neither the poet nor the servents had any respect for- while she felt very important, with house close to fashionable area and 4 servents, her life meant nothing- only the parrot was affected by her death

Slide 2

    Double standards
    - she was very self important- she cared only for her animals- she left nothing to her servants and cared more about her dogs even though she appeared to care about her social image

Slide 3
