Virginia Woolf – writer, feminist, and anti-colonial pacifist – is among the most important figures of the twentieth century. She was central to the modernist reinvention of the novel around subjective experience. She was also an astute social critic, exposing the extra burdens placed upon women even as their opportunities were curtailed. Alert to the hypocrisies of the powerful and the coercion of master narratives, her writing gives voice to the outsider, the marginal, and the contingent. Woolf's influence keeps growing. In this course we will read her most significant novels, essays, and stories. While learning about their original contexts (e.g., debates about women's suffrage, imperialism, WWI, the rise of fascism, the coming of WWII), we'll also explore what makes Woolf an icon today.
