9780500290866: Virginia Woolf. Alexandra Harris

Alexandra Harris' hugely acclaimed "Romantic Moderns" (winner of the 2010 Guardian First Book Award) overturned our picture of modernist culture during the interwar years. In her second book, which is newly available in paperback, she brings her attention to one of the towering figures of literary modernism. It is an intensely pleasurable read that weaves together the life and work of Virginia Woolf, and serves as an ideal introduction to both. Following the chronology of Woolfs life, it considers each of the novels in context, gives due prominence to her dazzlingly inventive essays, traces the contentious course of her afterlife and shows why, seventy years after her death, "Virginia Woolf" continues to haunt and inspire us.

Review:

“Will appeal to newcomers and acolytes alike.”
- USATODAY.com

“Handsomely illustrated and beribboned, Harris’s little volume is a miracle of clarity and concision, and an example of the brief life at its best.”
- The Washington Post

“This volume is sure to delight both the newbie and seasoned Woolf scholar. Summing Up: Highly recommended.”
- Choice

“The accessibility of this study is grounded upon authentic research and suffused with a lovely literary sensibility.”
- Historian

. . .Harris offers not only summations, but also invaluable nuanced insights about things that Woolf scholars have either missed or neglected―and always with a striking clarity, avoiding the abstruse and abstract.


- Choice

“Harris has accomplished the most triumphant biography of Woolf yet.... with an eagle-eye toward clarity, readability, and conciseness”
- Virginia Woolf Miscellany
