Female Embodiment and Subjectivity in the Modernist Novel : The Corporeum of Virginia Woolf and Olive Moore Hardback
Part of the Literary Criticism and Cultural Theory series
This study considers the work of two experimental British women modernists writing in the tumultuous interwar period--Virginia Woolf and Olive Moore--by examining four crucial incarnations of female embodiment and subjectivity: female bodies, geographical imagery, national ideology and textual experimentation.
Dickinson proposes that the ways Mrs. Dalloway, and The Waves by Virginia Woolf and Spleen and Fugue by Olive Moore reflect, expose and criticize physical, geographical and national bodies in the narrative and form of their texts reveal the authors' attempts to try on new forms and experiment with new possibilities of female embodiment and subjectivity.
