Bibliography of Woolf Studies Published in 1996

The following is a compilation of scholarship on Virginia Woolf published in 1996.  It is produced and maintained for The International Virginia Woolf Society, with the cooperation of MetaLab at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill.╩ My sources include various electronic databases plus information provided by friends of Woolf everywhere.  I make no claims to be exhaustive, but I do try to be comprehensive.  (Apologies for the lack of consistency in accent marks; the whimsies of electronic reproduction are to blame.)  If you have items to add,or corrections to offer, please send them to me, sally@metalab.unc.edu.  Or mail them to me at 406 Morgan Creek Drive, Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA, 27514.

Special issues or volumes

Woolf Studies Annual, vol. 2, edited by Mark Hussey for Pace University Press.  Important Woolf scholarship and informative reviews continue to issue from this new series.  Individual essays are indexed below.

Virginia Woolf Miscellany, nos. 47 and 48 (Spring and Fall 1996).  This long-running publication is the Notes and Queries of Woolf studies.  Editors are J. J. Wilson, Lucio Ruotolo, and Peter Stansky; Patricia Laurence is review editor.  Individual essays are indexed below.

Virginia Woolf: Texts and Contexts: Selected Papers from the Fifth Annual Conference on Virginia Woolf.  Edited by Beth Rigel Daugherty and Eileen Barrett, with an introduction by Beth Rigel Daugherty (Pace Univ. Press, 1996).  Individual essays are indexed below.

South Carolina Review 29 (Fall 1996).  In conjunction with the international theme of the Sixth Annual Virginia Woolf Conference, held in Clemson, South Carolina, in June 1996, Wayne Chapman edited a selection of ten essays by featured speakers on topics of international Woolf scholarship.  As he summarizes it in his introduction to the essays, "Their chief aim . . . was to provide a primarily American audience with exposure to points of view that prevail today on Virginia Woolf and her works in other parts of the world."  (Other selected papers from the Clemson conference were published by Pace University Press in 1997; see the 1997 bibliography.)  Indexed below.

"Teaching Judith Shakespeare," special issue of Shakespeare Quarterly 47 (Winter 1996). This volume, edited by Elizabeth H. Hageman and Sara Jayne Steen, is a tribute to and exploration of Renaissance women writers that takes as its vexed starting point Woolf's assertions about the paucity of women writers in the sixteenth century.  Indexed below are only those essays that directly address Woolf.

An interview with Quentin Bell published in Brazil two months before his death in December 1996.╩ The English-language version of Antonio Bivar's interview is published only on The International Virginia Woolf Society's web site.

Books of special note

In 1996, the year of Quentin Bell's death, two new biographies of Woolf were published: Hermione Lee's Virginia Woolf and Panthea Reid's Art and Affection.  Another Shakespeare Head Press edition of Woolf's work was published: Mrs. Dalloway, edited by Morris Beja.  And Woolf's lasting impact on the canon of Western literature--as well as her contested stake in it--is reflected in David Denby's Great Books: My Adventures with Homer, Rousseau, Woolf, and Other Indestructible Writers of the Western World, a portion of which (though not the Woolf discussion) was serialized in The New Yorker.╩ "As I read a writer I was sure I had always hated, I suddenly found my way to . . . sensations and events normally lodged below the sill of consciousness," writes Denby.╩ "Reading Woolf made me read Woolf better.╩ But I also read myself better."

Ambiguous Discourse: Feminist Narratology and British Women Writers, edited by Kathy Mezei (Univ. of North Carolina Press, 1996), though not devoted to Woolf, is worth mentioning because five of the essays (indexed below) focus on her work.  "Because Virginia Woolf wrote so incisively and passionately about the importance of breaking the sentence and the sequence . . . and about the patriarchal hold over women's lives and over the novel form, she rests at the center of this collection," writes Mezei in her introduction.

Sappho and the Virgin Mary: Same-Sex Love and the English Literary Imagination, by Ruth Vanita (Columbia Univ. Press, 1996), "began as a study of Virginia Woolf as a Sapphic writer in dialogue with her contemporaries and ancestors," according to Vanita's introduction.╩ Two chapters directly related to Woolf are indexed below.

The Bloomsbury Heritage Series, edited by Jean Moorcroft Wilson for Cecil Woolf Publishers, published five monographs in 1996:

Carrington and Lytton, Alone Together, by Mary Ann Caws
Bloomsbury Ceramics, by Abigail Willis

Virginia Woolf's War Trilogy, by Jean Moorcroft Wilson

Virginia Woolf and Companions--A Feminist Document, by Elizabeth Steele

Virginia Woolf, Cambridge and A Room of One's Own, by Jane Marcus

Fashion note

The magazine Victoria (March 1996) features an article by Catherine Calvert and Elliette Markhbein titled "Virginia Woolf's Cottage."  Devoted to Monk's House, it describes Woolf's bedroom and includes "reflections on her decorating style."

Multimedia

Primary Source Media published Major Authors on CD-ROM: Virginia Woolf, with Mark Hussey as the general editor.  The disc includes virtually all of her published works (including letters and diaries), plus about 13,000 manuscript pages (holograph and typescript).  Additionally, it includes the full eight minutes surviving of her 1937 "Craftsmanship" talk on BBC radio, as well as hyperlinks to Hussey's Virginia Woolf A to Z (see below). The disc can be searched in three ways--standard, advanced, and natural language--making it a very powerful and exciting new research tool.

Woolf's essay "The Death of the Moth" has been translated into a dance performance by the San Francisco-based Stephen Pelton Dance Theater.  Choreographed and first performed in 1996, "The Death of the Moth" combines the full text of Woolf's essay, with original violin music by Robert Maggio and movement choreographed and performed by Stephen Pelton, artistic director of the Theater.  The work, which was performed again at the 1997 Virginia Woolf Conference, "relates Woolf's narrative to similar struggles and intrepid deaths that occur today due to AIDS and other life-threatening illness," Pelton writes.

Book not out yet

Volume 4 of Andrew McNeillie's Essays of Virginia Woolf (1925-28), part of a fully annotated edition projected to consist of six volumes, was published in 1994 by Hogarth Press of London.  But in 1996, American readers still awaited its publication by Harcourt Brace (and are still waiting in 1999).╩ If this situation is causing you hardship, you might want to drop a note to Lynne Walker at Harcourt Brace.

Passing glances at Virginia Woolf

Recognizing that interest in Woolf has permeated the current literary and cultural scene, we are this year introducing a new dimension to the annual bibliography.╩ Check it out.
