Synopsis: These essays explore the impact of ideas about war and conflict on Virginia Woolf's writing. It shows the roots of her sensitivity to violence and how she connected the myths and realities of war with the private violence of the patriarchal family.
From Library Journal:
This collection of critical essays on the works of Woolf provides variations on the theme that while many interpreters of Woolf have seen her as apolitical, she did in fact oppose war in both fiction and nonfiction. While the topic may be of interest to a broader audience concerned with antiwar literature, most essays are written in a literary critical jargon that makes them accessible only to specialists. Moreover, most discuss Woolf only from a strident feminist perspective, and some interpretations seem a little forced. Recommended only for feminist literary criticism and larger Woolf collections.
