This book throws new light on Woolfs short stories by showing how they enact conversations between the self and other, whether between characters or between writer and reader. Tracing Woolfs own theory of the short story, this new study demonstrates how these works become a site of resistance against social and cultural norms.
CHRISTINE REYNIER is Professor of English Literature at Universit Paul Valry-Montpellier III, France.
