Virginia Woolf and Poetry

This is the first book to study Woolf’s attitude towards poetry, a key spur to Jacob’s Room, Mrs. Dalloway, To the Lighthouse, Orlando, A Room of One’s Own, The Waves, and Between the Acts. It unites analysis of prose and verse, and the novel and poetry, and engages with scholarship on these forms and genres, drawing on little-known sources and rare material and offers a thorough reinterpretation of the motivations and aims of Woolf’s major publications.
