About the Authors
  • As a paradigmatic modernist author, Virginia Woolf is celebrated for the ways her fiction illuminates modern and contemporary life. Woolf scholars have long debated how context – whether historical, cultural, or theoretical – is to be understood in relation to her work, and how her work produces new insights into context. Drawing on an international field of leading and emergent specialists, this collection provides an authoritative resource for contemporary Woolf scholarship that explores the distinct and overlapping dimensions of her writings. Rather than survey existing scholarship, these essays extend Woolf studies in new directions by examining how the author is contextualized today. The collection also highlights connections between Woolf and key cultural, political, and historical issues of the twentieth century such as avant-gardism in music and art, developments in journalism and the publishing industry, political struggles over race, gender, and class, and the bearings of colonialism, empire, and war. A valuable critical touchstone for researchers, the volume will also complement graduate scholarship in English literature, literary theory, context studies, and modernism and postcolonial studies.

    • Largest number of essays on Virginia Woolf ever offered in a single collection
    • Offers original interventions from major and emerging Woolf scholars
    • Covers an exceptionally wide range of theoretical and historical contexts for the study of Woolf's writing

    Reviews & endorsements

    "While the study of historicism in the works of modernist author Virginia Woolf is not new, this anthology is a valuable addition to the scholarship on Woolf."
    D. L. Spanfelner, Choice

    "Similar to other books in Cambridge University Press’s Literature in Context series, this collection places a particular writer within the various contexts that inform his or her work … this collection provides the contexts necessary to understand Woolf’s more difficult works without prescribing the view one should take of these works - and Woolf herself."
    Molly Youngkin, English Literature in Transition, 1880–1920
