Virginia Woolf: the child of two atheists

Virginia Woolf, daughter of the pre-eminent Victorian anti-theist, Leslie Stephen, had to confront non-belief in immortality from her earliest, bereaved youth. What impact did this exposure to sceptical humanism have upon her later writing?


Sybil Oldfield, Research Reader in English, University of Sussex, is the author of numerous books including: Spinsters of This Parish - the life and work of F.M.Mayor and Mary Sheepshanks; Women Against the Iron Fist - the anti-militarist thought of Maude Royden, Simone Weil, Helen Keller, Virginia Woolf, Christa Wolf, Petra Kelly et al; Doers of the Word - British Women Humanitarians 1900-1950, a biographical dictionary and Afterwords: Letters on the Death of Virginia Woolf.
