The authors address issues of violence, war, peace, conflict, force, and literary form in the work of Virginia Woolf. They examine the relation of Woolf’s writing and thought to peace studies and the pedagogy of non-violence; the sources of violence and war; Woolf’s betrayal by her male modernist peers; the implications of dividing “war,” “violence,” and “force” as separate categories for discussion; and the current relevance of Woolf’s analysis of the causes of war and the sources of peace and her assertion that “thinking is my fighting.” The authors consult such works as Woolf’s Three Guineas, Letters, Diary, and “Thoughts on Peace in an Air Raid.”
