This new collection contains essays on Woolf and some American
women writers, such as Sylvia Plath and Toni Morrison.
Critical Insights: Virginia Woolf & 20th Century Women Writers introduces readers to the major turning points that occurred during this revolutionary time period. The essays in this volume showcase the multivalent nature of Woolf’s life and fiction, along with her pervasive and varied influence on a diverse array of women writers from Britain, Ireland, America, New Zealand, and the Caribbean. The women writers that were chosen represent Woolf’s transatlantic appeal across ethnic and national lines, across affinity and influence, friendship and mentorship.
