ENGL 7781 Virginia Woolf (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

In addition to the major novels—Jacob's Room, Mrs. Dalloway, To the Lighthouse, The Waves, and Between the Acts—and famous essays and autobiographical writings (A Room of One's Own, Three Guineas, and Moments of Being—we will look at some of Woolf's (relatively) neglected work: her short fiction and essays, and perhaps some of the lesser-read novels (The Voyage Out, Night and Day, The Years). Focusing on detailed readings of Woolf's writing, we will also attempt to view her writing in various other contexts: Anglo-American modernism, for instance, or the history of the novel and the essay.
