Interdisciplinary/Multidisciplinary Woolf

Liverpool University Press

This chapter offers a nostalgic invocation of Virginia Woolf's biography and image in the re-launching of Hogarth Press through the “Definitive Collected Edition” of her novels. The year 1988 is one of the key moments in marketing and publishing Woolf because of copyright, academic trends, and changes at the Hogarth Press itself. The rest of the chapter examines the finished product of the definitive collected edition, from the hotly debated cover design and the introductions by Quentin Bell and Angelica Garnett, to the annotations, or lack thereof, and promotion. It also discusses the fascinating vicissitudes of publication and the meaning of Woolf herself at the turn of the decade.

Keywords:   biography, Hogarth Press, Definitive Collected Edition, novels, marketing, publishing, copyright, cover design, annotations
