Woolf Studies Titles
A transcription of the three holograph notebooks in the British Library, the volume includes an introduction and appendixes that transcribe additional relevant material from the Berg collection.
Based on the holograph manuscript in the Henry W. and Albert A. Berg Collection of English and American Literature at the New York Public library, this transcription follows the original three-volume manuscript page for page and line for line, giving the reader a sense of how Jacob's Room was truly a work in progress. Written between 1920 and 1922, Jacob's Room was a literary experiment for Woolf, leaving behind the traditional forms of her previous novels, The Voyage Out and Night and Day. Included in Bishop's text are the short sketches that Virginia Woolf included in volume II of the manuscript. Additionally, spelling and punctuation has not been corrected or normalized to maintain continuity with the original manuscript.
This book is a valuable addition to scholarship on Bloomsbury, the history of women in Britain, and the work of Leonard and Virginia Woolf. It portrays an era and illuminates the work of a number of famous writers by examining less well-known lives and works that were part of the adaptive complex, or milieu.
This unique volume is based on presentations from the Virginia Woolf Across Cultures symposium held at Russian State University for the Humanities (Moscow) and Leo Tolstoy Estate Museum Yasnya Polyana (Tula Region) on June 27-29, 2003. Thirty scholars from Britain, Canada, Japan, Korea, the Netherlands, Portugal, Russia, and the United States explore Woolf’s work from a wide variety of cross-cultural and language contexts, with a particular emphasis on translation.
A timely contribution to one of the most contentious areas in Woolf studies, Virginia Woolf and Trauma extends existing scholarship on both Woolf and narratives of trauma in provocative and challenging ways.
