We will read, analyze, and discuss three short novels by the quintessential modern woman of English literature: Virginia Woolf. Orlando , Mrs. Dalloway , and To The Lighthouse are a cross-section of Woolf’s groundbreaking, rule-breaking, gender-bending fiction. Together they encompass the personal, political, and literary concerns of a generation and continue to resonate today. Students will explore the themes and techniques of Woolf’s work through lectures, workshops, discussions, and critical writing.
