This collection of original essays on Virginia Woolf by leading scholars in the field opens up new debates on the work of one of the foremost modernists of the twentieth century.  

The collection also looks at some of Woolf's own essays, discussing her theory of fiction and devotion to 'stream of consciousness' writing.  Its thirteen contributors place this discussion of Woolf's artistic theory and practice within the context of her association with the Bloomsbury Group and her interest in spirituality, feminism, homosexuality, pacifism and psychoanalysis.
