Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Published in 2000, the first edition of The Cambridge Companion to Virginia Woolf declared that its attentions would be directed towards Woolf’s “mind: the breadth of her intellectual range; her impulsive flights of creative brilliance, the long labours of composition; her conversations with the present; her arguments with history” (xiii). This second edition, directed “towards those wishing to augment their reading through an introduction to the interrogations and discoveries of Woolf scholars today” (xix) has lost none of its enthusiasm for its subject, and its scope remains impressive."
-Emma Sterry, University of Strathclyde, Woolf Studies Annual 18 (2012)
