Contradictory Woolf

Liverpool University Press

This chapter examines the contradictory themes of war and peace with regard to Virginia Woolf. It provides a background on the roundtable that was organized based on Jane Wood's edited collection, The Theme of Peace and War in Virginia Woolf's Writings (2010), and summarizes the contribution made by the other members of the panel led by Wood and including Stuart Clarke, Lolly Ockerstrom, Vara Neverow, and Eileen Barrett. It also discusses the interconnectiveness of Woolf, women, and war; how Woolf informs the lived experience of both combatants and noncombatants obscured by the series of snapshots considered “history”; trauma as a contemporary approach to literary and war studies; the methodologies used in teaching Three Guineas in relation to war and sometimes in relation to other texts; and the antiwar argument of Three Guineas.

Keywords:   war, peace, Jane Wood, Stuart Clarke, Eileen Barrett, women, trauma, war studies, Three Guineas
