The Ethics of Anti-perfectionism in Victorian Fiction by Thomas Joudrey( file )

This dissertation examines the reasons that Victorian writers renounced perfectionism. Scholars have long believed that during the nineteenth century perfectionism provided a conceptual framework centered on flawlessness that guided ethical thought toward harmony, purity, and completion. My analysis interrupts the triumphalism of this narrative by exposing the role that perfectionism played in underwriting fanaticism and despotic state power, which in turn stoked the persecution of dissent. Opponents of perfectionism warned that it generated far-reaching collateral damage by shoring up dogmatism, delusions of infallibility, servile conformity, and false narratives about the commensurability of discrete life plans. Beyond these side effects, they cautioned that perfectionism inherently abrogates valuable conditions of a flourishing human life: receptivity to beauty, the capacity to express choice, and the importance of dynamic transformation. Even these anti-perfectionism arguments, however, were prone to concealing the perils of perfectionism because their abstract level of argumentation evaded the contingencies and contradictions that arose when actualized in experience. Nineteenth-century novels fleshed out these problems. William Makepeace Thackeray's Vanity Fair shows how perfectionism spawns obsessional attachments that ultimately corrode self-respect and enervate ambition. George Eliot portrays perfectionism as fortifying egoism and deflecting recognition of irreconcilable conflicts. Oscar Wilde's novel and prison letter depict the devastating effects of being locked in the stasis of perfection. Even outside of canonical texts, Victorian pornography explores the anti-utopian realities of bodily decay. Taken together, these works invite a recognition of the vulnerability of human life and recommend an ethics that responds to and ameliorates suffering, rather than aspiring to flawlessness
