“Unblowing, Ungrowing Are the Roses There”

Violence against Women and the Land in Virginia Woolf’s Between the Acts and Louise Erdrich’s The Round House

(p.219) Chapter Fourteen “Unblowing, Ungrowing Are the Roses There”
Virginia Woolf, Europe, and Peace

Kristin Czarnecki

Liverpool University Press

This chapter brings Virginia Woolf and Native American writer Louise Erdrich into transnational conversation to highlight intersections between sexual violence against women and manipulation and destruction of the land. It situates both novels in the context of ecofeminism. A “common goal of ecofeminism,” Kathi Wilson states, ‘is to disrupt those women-nature connections that are oppressive’. Such disruption figures significantly in Between the Acts and The Round House, earthtexts depicting the suffering of Others to reveal how hegemonic concepts of land use and ownership engender the violation of women.

Keywords:   Ecofeminism, Louise Erdrich, The Round House, Earthtext, Sexual violence
