Virginia Woolf and the Natural World

Kristin Czarnecki and Carrie Rohman


This book is a compilation of thirty-one chapters which contain discussions presented at the twentieth annual international conference on Virginia Woolf. This volume explores Woolf's complex engagement with the natural world, an engagement that was as political as it was aesthetic. The diversity of topics within this collection—ecofeminism, the nature of time, the nature of the self, nature and sporting, botany, climate, and landscape, just to name a few—fosters a deeper understanding of the nature of nature in Woolf's works.

Keywords: Virginia Woolf, natural world, ecofeminism, nature of time, nature of self, sporting, botany, climate, landscape
