The Cambridge Companion to Virginia Woolf: Cambridge Companions to Literature

Editat de Susan Sellers
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 18 feb 2010
Virginia Woolf's writing has generated passion and controversy for the best part of a century. Her novels - challenging, moving, and always deeply intelligent - remain as popular with readers as they are with students and academics. The highly successful Cambridge Companion has been fully revised to take account of new departures in scholarship since it first appeared. The second edition includes new chapters on race, nation and empire, sexuality, aesthetics, visual culture and the public sphere. The remaining chapters, as well as the guide to further reading, have all been fully updated. The Cambridge Companion to Virginia Woolf remains the first port of call for students new to Woolf's work, with its informative, readable style, chronology and authoritative information about secondary sources.a

"Published in 2000, the first edition of The Cambridge Companion to Virginia Woolf declared that its attentions would be directed towards Woolf’s “mind: the breadth of her intellectual range; her impulsive flights of creative brilliance, the long labours of composition; her conversations with the present; her arguments with history” (xiii). This second edition, directed “towards those wishing to augment their reading through an introduction to the interrogations and discoveries of Woolf scholars today” (xix) has lost none of its enthusiasm for its subject, and its scope remains impressive."
-Emma Sterry, University of Strathclyde, Woolf Studies Annual 18 (2012)
