Synopsis

This book reconsiders Virginia Woolf's work for the 21st century focusing on coevolution, duality and contradiction. These 11 newly commissioned essays represent the evolution, or coevolution, of Woolf studies in the early 21st-century. Divided into 5 parts - Self and Identity; Language and Translation; Culture and Commodification; Human, Animal and Nonhuman; and Gender, Sexuality and Multiplicity - the essays represent the most recent scholarship on the subjective, provisional, and contingent nature of Woolf's work. The expert contributors consider unstable constructions of self and identity, and language and translation from multiple angles, including shifting textualities, culture and the marketplace, critical animal studies, and discourses that fracture and revise gender and sexuality. It extends existing critical work that considers a multiplicity of constructions of 'Virginia Woolf'. It demonstrates original and diverse ways of reading this canonical (and contradictory) author. It explores multiple meanings related to the conjoined, fused, connected, and evolving nature of Woolf studies.

It considers new configurations, new pairings, and new ways of placing ideas in tension around Woolf's work for a postmodern, postmillennial age.
