Virginia Woolf and the Common(wealth) Reader, edited by Helen Wussow and Mary Ann Gillies

April 15, 2014

scanned_virginia woolf and the common(wealth) readerVirginia Woolf and the Common(wealth) Reader presents twenty-eight essays and four poetic invocations on the concept of “common(wealth),” addressing geographical, political, and imaginary spaces in which different readers and readings vie for primacy of place. The essays in this collection, including contributions¬†by Rosemary Ashton, Paul Delany, Christine Froula, Mary Ann Gillies, Sonita Sarker, and Jane Stafford, reflect upon “common(wealth)” as a constructed entity, one that necessarily embodies tensions between the communal and individual, traditional culture and emergent forms, indigenous people and colonial powers, and literary insiders and outsiders.
