This module tackles a broad selection of Woolf's writings: fictional, critical, polemical and autobiographical. We will look at how Woolf challenges conventional boundaries and definitions of types of writing. Philosophical, cultural, historical and psychological dimensions of Woolf's life and work will be addressed, as well as literary issues. These will include consciousness and the self; the representation of affect; truth in fiction; and Woolf's formal experimentation and diversity. The aim of the module will be to develop an understanding of the complexity and ambiguity of Woolf's writing.
