Hearts of darkness : white women write race by Jane Marcus( Book )

9 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, one of modernism's most insightful critics, Jane Marcus, examines the writings of novelists such as Virginia Woolf, Nancy Cunard, Mulk Raj Anand, and Djuna Barnes-artists whose work coincided with the end of empire and the rise of fascism before the Second World War. All these writers delved into the "dark hearts" of imperialism and totalitarianism, thus tackling some of the most complex cultural issues of the day. Marcus investigates previously unrecognized ways in which social and political tensions are embodied by their works. The centerpiece of the book is M
The convert by Elizabeth Robins( Book )

7 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Convert is about the British Suffrage movement, which the author knew well. Part witty and scathing commentary on the upper classes, part political rhetoric quoted directly from open-air meetings, and part muck-raking realism, it moves back and forth between the personal and the political until the two can no longer be distinguished. The Convert uses as its frame the political "conversion" of Vida Levering, a beautiful, upper middle-class woman. We follow Vida's growing discontent with "country weekend" society and her increasing awareness of the common lot of women. Forthright and direct, Elizabeth Robins discusses issues that must have been shocking in 1907: unwed motherhood, the effects of the inequality of women, and the essential disrespect that underlies chivalry. Reminiscent of Jane Austen and foreshadowing the work of Virginia Woolf, The Convert is a fascinating novel. It provides us with a sense of history and a feeling of pride in what women could and did accomplish. It is also disturbing because far too many of the issues are still relevant

The bend back : modernity, sensation, and vision in Bowen, Rhys, Woolf, and Lehmann by Lauren Elkin( Book )

2 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cette étude prend comme point de départ l'idée que les changements survenus après la Première guerre mondiale dans le rôle social des femmes ont coïncidé avec, voire même facilité, des changements dans l'écriture des femmes auteures de l'époque. On peut en effet constater que des mutations sociales (d'ordre social) ont entraîné des mutations littéraires (d'ordre litttéraire). Pour autant, ces évolutions n'ont pas simplement fait advenir un sentiment de liberté chez les femmes. Au contraire, ces écrivaines mettent en oeuvre un paradoxe constant entre liberté et contrainte, permissivité et décorum, que l'on retrouve dans leurs textes sur un plan formel, thématique et affectif. Inscrits dans la période dite "late modem", les romans que j'examine témoignent du fait qu'il faut être sensible aux attentes qui pèsent sur soi afin de se montrer à la hauteur [rise to the occasion}, ainsi qu' Elizabeth Bowen décrit le défi central de la vie moderne. L'expérience féminine décrite par ces textes est une série d'attentes, de jugements et de questionnements nécessitant un développement supérieur des sens. La fonction essentielle de la perception, selon Merleau-Ponty, est de "fonder ou inaugurer la connaissance" (3). En étudiant des textes d'Elizabeth Bowen, Jean Rhys, Virginia Woolf et Rosamond Lehmann, je souhaite montrer que les sens deviennent un outil qui permet d'évoluer au sein de ce contexte social en mutation perpétuelle. Chaque chapitre se concentre sur la façon dont ces auteures articulent des tensions entre le soi et la société en mobilisant des sens physiques ainsi que psychologiques. Le retour en arrière-- the bend back--constitue l'une de leurs stratégies majeures : plutôt que de procéder de manière téléologique, leurs textes se retournent vers le passé, afin de comprendre son effet sur le présent et d'ainsi saisir le sens de leur propre inscription dans un moment historique

Three guineas : annotated by Virginia Woolf( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three Guineas is written as a series of letters in which Virginia Woolf ponders the efficacy of donating to various causes to prevent war. In reflecting on her situation as the "daughter of an educated man" in 1930s England, Woolf challenges liberal orthodoxies and marshals vast research to make discomforting and still-challenging arguments about the relationship between gender and violence, and about the pieties of those who fail to see their complicity in war-making. This pacifist-feminist essay is a classic whose message resonates loudly in our contemporary global situation. Annotated and with an introduction by Jane Marcus
