This chapter explores three different ways of reading Virginia Woolf: ventriloquize, surround, and bounce. In the context of challenges to historical criticism, the chapter suggests that it is the bounce that that most helps us to open history as it relates to Woolf. It considers how the three methods of reading Woolf stand in contrast to reductive interpretations and assumptions of history and of historiography. It also discusses the so-called “bounce factor,” in which words of the past bounce against each other and out against us. It describes the bounce factor as rather like taking the varying and transformative effects of repeated words in Woolf's texts that Judith Allen referred to as an approach to cultural history.
