Overview

Virginia Woolf: The Patterns of Ordinary Experience by Lorraine Sim

Placing Virginia Woolf's views in the context of the philosophical and lay accounts of everyday experience that dominated the cultural thought of her time, Sim draws on the major novels and on a number of shorter and less-discussed texts such as short stories, essays, memoirs, and diaries. Woolf, Sim contends, explores the potential of everyday experience as a site of personal meaning, social understanding, and ethical value.
