Abstract:

Eminent feminist critic Gillian Beer's work on Woolf, George Eliot, and Victorian scientific discourse is well known and admired. In Virginia Woolf: The Common Ground, Beer's essays on Woolf are brought together for the first time in a single volume. Through her close investigative textual readings, she demonstrates how Woolf's conceptualizations of history and narrative are intimately bound up with her ways of thinking about women, writing, and social and sexual relations. This is demonstrated through precise, detailed configurations, setting Woolf alongside texts both contemporary and distant, scientific and literary, with the effect that Woolf's writing is illuminated in entirely new and unexpected contexts. Virginia Woolf: The Common Ground is a compelling collection for students, scholars, and Woolf devotees alike.
