Virginia Woolf

Study the works of Virginia Woolf.

The view of Virginia Woolf, author, changed enormously over the course of the twentieth century. When she died in 1941, she was regarded as a minor "lady" novelist of a modernist bent. By the end of the century, she was seen as a major literary figure whose works dealt, technically and philosophically, with the important problems of the contemporary world. All her novels, essays, diaries, and letters were in print; and all of these writings were, in turn, subject to massive amounts of critical and biographical scrutiny. As a result, we know more about her than we know about any other author but we also have to choose among a number of competing versions of who "Virginia Woolf, author," really was.

To arrive at our own version, we shall read five of her novels:
her first, The Voyage Out;
her breakthrough experiment, Jacob's Room;
her two acknowledged masterpieces, Mrs. Dalloway and To the Lighthouse;
and her most experimental novel, The Waves.
