Virginia Woolf and Heritage

Jane deGay, Tom Breckin, and Anne Reus


This volume situates Virginia Woolf in relation to the past. A range of articles from leading Woolf scholars demonstrate that despite her fame as a leading Modernist novelist, Woolf also drew on a rich cultural, literal and familiar heritage in her writing. Prominent themes include education and mentoring, heritage spaces, literary and cultural pasts, and Woolf’s exploration of queer pasts. It also assesses her own literary and biographical legacy, including recent works of biofiction, and the reception of Woolf’s work by writers in France, Poland, Romania and North America.

Keywords: Virginia Woolf, heritage sites, literary traditions, family heritage, lifewriting/biofiction, queer pasts
