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

9 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 503 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 444 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

In this study, I take as my point of departure the idea that the shifts in women's social roles which occurred after the Great War and throughout the 1920s coincided with, and indeed made possible, formal shifts in women's writing. A change in social perspective occasions a change in literary perspective. However, these shifts did not result in an unhinged feeling of freedom and liberation for women. On the contrary, these writers attest to a double bind of propriety and permissiveness, of freedom and constraint, that comes through in their texts on a formal, the-matic, and affective level. The late modernist novels I examine testify to the fact that in order to "rise to the occasion," as Elizabeth Bowen describes the central challenge of modem life, one must be attuned to what is expected of one, to how one is viewed, to how one is judged, to how one feels, how one is to love, how one is to live. The essential fonction of perception, according to Merleau-Ponty, is "to lay the foundations of, or inaugurale, knowledge" (19). Through read-ings of the work of Elizabeth Bowen, Jean Rhys, Rosamond Lehmann and Virginia Woolf, I argue that the senses become a tool for understanding how to navigate this constantly shifting social context. Each chapter concentrates on a way in which the authors considered articulate the tensions between the self and society through an attentive activation of the physical as well as knowledge-based senses. A major narrative strategy adopted by these writers, I will argue, is the bend back-- ramer than proceeding teleologically, their texts bend backward in a therapeutic attempt to revalue the present, or to understand how it came to be so, in a larger attempt to make sense of their moment and their role within it

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
