about

In the tradition of previous volumes, Virginia Woolf: Texts and Contexts captures the multiple voices and critical perspectives that animate and invigorate Woolf scholarship. Virginia Woolf: Texts and Contexts includes new interpretations of Jacob's Room by Christine Froula and Madeline Moore, a look at the promotion and publishing of Woolf's work in her lifetime by Edward Bishop, and a look at reading Woolf as a man by Mark Hussey. Contributors analyze Woolf alongside the comic work of Ring Lardner and Lily Tomlin, pair her with Joseph Conrad and Edith Wharton, and place her with Walt Whitman, Jeanette Winterson, and others who describe same-sex love. Other contributors shed light on Woolf through comparing her work to that produced by writers in Heian Japan and during the Spanish Civil War. The volume contains innovative work by Jane Lilienfeld, Melba Cuddy-Keane, Diane Gillespie, and Thomas Caramagno. It includes talks on memoirs by Mary Beth Pringle, Alicia Ostriker, and Toni McNaron.
Rigel Daugherty is Associate Professor of English and Chair of Integrative Studies at Otterbein College in Westerville, Ohio. Eileen Barrett is Associate Professor and Chair of English at California State University, Hayward.
