Virginia Woolf : public and private negotiations by Anna Snaith( Book )
21 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and held by 477 libraries worldwide
"Virginia Woolf is one of the great innovators of the modernist novel and a seminal figure in feminist writings. In this new book discussing the whole of Woolf's fiction, Linden Peach argues that Woolf was also a more sophisticated political thinker than has been generally recognised, interested in the complex relationship between history, politics, and language. In particular, Peach shows how Woolf's fiction explores the dialogic relationship between past and present and the coded and concealed meanings of public discourse."--Jacket
Palgrave advances in Virginia Woolf studies by Anna Snaith( Book )
9 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 295 libraries worldwide
Virginia Woolf is one of the most written-about writers of the twentieth century. Her work has evoked passionate and violently opposed reactions, making the history of her reception - with its trends and preoccupations - a fascinating subject. However, the ever-expanding body of criticism on Woolf can be daunting to readers, students and researchers. This indispensable guide to Woolf Studies provides clear and engaging accounts of eleven key approaches to Woolf's work, including feminist, biographical, historicist, modernist and psychoanalytical. It also highlights more recent approaches to Woolf's writing such as lesbian, postcolonial and European reception studies. Written by internationally renowned Woolf scholars, each chapter outlines the approach itself and provides concise summaries of key texts in the field. The volume also includes a full introduction to Woolf's reception and key reference tools such as a comprehensive bibliography which includes electronic resources and a chronology of Woolf's work
Locating Woolf : the politics of space and place by A Snaith( Book )
11 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 246 libraries worldwide
The locations of Virginia Woolf's fictions and essays are rarely neutral backdrops, but spaces whose meanings are produced and reproduced through social activity. Woolf's writings are constantly alive to those meanings and to their contestation, but the nuances are not always immediately apparent. Locating Woolf, a collection of eleven essays by an international range of scholars, is the first book to offer an in-depth treatment of her spatial politics, contributing to emergent debates about modernism and geography. Its innovative readings provide both fresh approaches to well-established texts -- A Room of One's Own, Orlando, Between the Acts -- and new contexts for less familiar essays such as "Thunder at Wembley" and "Evening Over Sussex". Themes considered include gendered spaces, the urban and the rural, the postcolonial, the technological, and the transcultural. The introduction includes a theoretical overview and original readings of Night and Day, Mrs Dalloway, and the London Scene essays
The years by Virginia Woolf( Book )
11 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 177 libraries worldwide
"The Years is perhaps Virginia Woolf's most politically and historically embedded novel. It covers a period of intense social change from the 1880s to the 1930s, making direct reference to suffrage, Irish Home Rule, the First World War and anti-semitism. The novel's composition history is unusually complex; the text changed radically from its inception in 1931 to its publication in 1937. This edition provides readers with a fully collated and annotated text. It includes a substantial introduction that charts the composition process, a detailed chronology and full annotation of all historical, cultural and topographical references. All variants from extant galley and page proofs, as well as editions of the novel produced in Woolf's lifetime, are included, and reveal the significant and crucial changes Woolf made even in the months before publication"--

Modernist voyages : colonial women writers in London, 1890-1945 by Anna Snaith( Book )
10 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 125 libraries worldwide
London's literary and cultural scene fostered newly configured forms of feminist anticolonialism during the modernist period. Through their writing in and about the imperial metropolis, colonial women authors not only remapped the city, they also renegotiated the position of women within the empire. This book examines the significance of gender to the interwoven nature of empire and modernism. As transgressive figures of modernity, writers such as Jean Rhys, Katherine Mansfield, Una Marson and Sarojini Naidu brought their own versions of modernity to the capital, revealing the complex ways in which colonial identities 'traveled' to London at the turn of the twentieth century. Anna Snaith's timely and original study provides a new vantage point on the urban metropolis and its artistic communities for scholars and students of literary modernism, gender and postcolonial studies, and English literature more broadly
Making your case : a practical guide to essay writing ( Book )
5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 120 libraries worldwide
"Although the academic essay is central to individual achievement in Higher Education, it often seems to students to be an activity that goes on outside rather than inside seminar and tutorial rooms. Making Your Case: a Practical Guide to Essay Writing is a practical book designed to demystify the processes of academic writing through careful explanation and a series of engaging and practical exercises. The book offers a valuable opportunity for the reader to investigate and learn about the processes of academic writing and includes chapters on: collecting information; identifying an argument; designing a plan; and editing, proof-reading and referencing. Although it is rooted in the study of literary texts, the techniques explored and strategies offered apply to all courses and forms of writing which require a degree of argumentation and analysis."--Cover
