This course is designed to study the writing of Virigina Woolf and will include some of her novels and essays.
We will explore a range of writing by one of the most popular writers of the modernist period. Woolf produced work that was innovative and writing which has had an enduring appeal since it was first published. We will explore Woolf’s exploration of the psychological background of her characters, look at how she spoke on issues relating to class, the position of women, the role of marriage in society and documented a changing modernising society.
The following texts will be considered:

To the Lighthouse and
A Room of One’s Own.
