This course provides an introduction to the seminal writings of Virginia Woolf by examining the variety of forms and cultural contexts in which she wrote. Students will learn to identify some of the themes and experimental techniques that Woolf explored through her crucially independent ability to self-publish. We will also assess the culture of early twentieth century Britain through the lens of her most famous works, including Mrs. Dalloway, The Waves and To the Lighthouse, as well as A Room of One’s Own and Three Guineas.
