The book investigates Virginia Woolf's critical historiographical ideas and practices in relation to the culture of modernity and constellates them with the thought of Walter Benjamin


'In bringing Virginia Woolf's histriographical techniques into constellation with Benjamin's thoughts on modernity and history, Spiropoulou offers a fresh approach to Woolf's engagement with history which neither ties her work to the "subjective realism" of new historicism, nor neccesarily implicates her as a precursor to postmodern approaches to history.' - Routledge ABES

'Angeliki Spiropoulou's Virginia Woolf, Modernity and History: Constellations with Walter Benjamin is a handy and compact book that can be taken as emblematic of the direction comparative literature is taking today. Spiropoulou shows vividly and cogently that the point is no longer to simply compare texts, periods, or authors, but to find new ways of combining literature and theory. The aim is to read better, deeper, and more intelligently the canonical authors that are too often taught in isolation.' - Jean-Michel Rabate, Journal of Modern Literature

'The book is an important contribution to Woolf studies as well as literary modernist studies and historical studies more generally. It is also a particularly timely book in that the relation between gender, sexuality and temporality, especially history, is currently receiving renewed critical attention.' - Jana Funke, Historein

'Virginia Woolf, Modernity and History suggests a method of inquiry that, indeed, could inspire interesting interdisciplinary approaches among historians, philosophers and literary theorists.' - Daniel W. Bang, Woolf Studies Annual

'This inventive, skilfully constructed study also serves as a site of new potentialities, producing vivid new readings of the author's work ... presenting Spiropoulou as a critic in perfect alignment with her subject.' James Bailey - European Journal of English Studies
