Can a dialogic New Modernist paradigm be made to fulfill its intended potential as a literary and scholarly geomodernist geopolitical equalizer? With this question in the background, this chapter considers Woolf’s review of Cornelia Sorabji, whose Between the Twilights, an auto/biografictional 1908 account of upper-caste Hindu purdahnashin women, Woolf read and wrote on at the same time she was composing the auto/biographical, fragmentary account of her childhood published by Jeanne Schulkind in Moments of Being (1976) as “Reminiscences.” Sorabji’s equivocal, subversive, sliding strategies, chief among them a predilection to, as Woolf put it in A Room of One’s Own, “talk of something else.” are reminiscent of/evoke Woolf’s own.
