Acerca de


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


“Dr. Spiropoulou's elegant treatment of Virginia Woolf and Modernism deserves to be on any list of "must read" books on Woolf's complicated relation to modernism and, above all, to that "history" to which Woolf was devoted from childhood.  Since modernism is commonly thought to be hostile to "history," Dr. Spiropoulou's subtle and perspicuous readings of Woolf's major works override such easy generalizations, complicate what might be meant by "modernism" today, and show a sensitivity to the confusion over the nature of that "history" that many looked to as a possible foundation for cultural renewal in the inter-war years.  The research into diaries, letters, and other personal papers of Virginia Woolf adds flesh to the overall schema.” (Hayden White, University Professor, Emeritus, University of California,  Consultant Professor, Comparative  Literature, Stanford University, USA)
