In this volume of the Woolf Studies Annual, Jane Goldman reveals submerged suffrage history in The Waves, Lorraine Janzen Kooistra explains how Roger Fry is an apologia for Bloomsbury, and Janet Winston examines the multiple discourses of imperialism in To the Lighthouse. Karen L. Levenback explores Woolf's embodiment of the post-war experience of combatants in Mrs. Dalloway and The Years, Tracy Seeley finds in a short story Woolf's autobiographical experience of private and public space, and Barbara Apstein traces Woolf's reading of Chaucer in the drafts and published text of Between the Acts. A new "Comment" section includes Jill Morstad's juxtaposition of Woolf's feminist polemics with the politics of examining graduate students, Nicholas Midgley's uncomfortable posing of Woolf's question 'why teach English?', and Brenda Silvers' thoughts on the movie Tom & Viv. Woolf Studies Annual, Volume II also includes a revised and up-to-date "Guide to Collections" and reviews of several new books on Woolf, Bloomsbury, and related matters.
