Contradictory Woolf

Derek Ryan and Stella Bolaki


This book presents thirty-seven chapters which present the text of papers selected from approximately 200 papers given at the 21st Annual International Conference on Virginia Woolf, hosted by the University of Glasgow. The theme of contradiction in Woolf's writing, including her use of the word “but,” is widely explored in relation to auto/biography, art, philosophy, cognitive science, sexuality, animality, class, mathematics, translation, annotation, poetry, and war.

Keywords: war, Virginia Woolf, contradiction, but, autobiography, biography, cognitive science, sexuality, animality, class
