Interdisciplinary/Multidisciplinary Woolf

Lolly J. Ockerstrom

This chapter compares Three Guineas to two other treatments of the Spanish Civil War: Gerald Brenan's The Spanish Labyrinth and Gamel Woolsey's Death's Other Kingdom. Brenan, Woolsey, and Woolf piece together different strands of the complex narrative of the Spanish Civil War. Each of these authors addresses details too painful to describe, and they speak through different constructions in their writing. Woolf writes about Spain even as she was grieving over the death of her nephew, Julian Bell, killed while working with an ambulance crew in Spain. Jane Marcus observes that “Woolf keeps the reader's experience of the atrocities of the deaths of women and children in the Spanish Civil War purely verbal.” The rest of the chapter explores the interdisciplinary views of Brenan, Woolsey, and Woolf with regard to photography, history, and memoir of the Spanish Civil War.
