This series takes up the challenge of contemporary literary theory, providing collections of seminal modern readings of key authors, genres and critical approaches. Rachel Bowlby's anthology of aricles on Virginia Woolf covers a range of approaches and main issues of debate on this significant and controversial writer. The collection includes pieces by such well known writers as Gillian Beer, Mary Jacobus, Peggy Kamuf and Catharine Stimpson. It contains a substantial introduction, detailed headnotes and notes on authors, as well as the most established and influential criticism, plus the range of approaches to Woolf's work. It is aimed at undergraduate courses on modern literary criticism, modern literature and feminist criticism. Students in women's studies will also find the book useful.
Rachel Bowlby is Professor of English at University College London, UK.
