Virginia Woolf and the Visible World
In Virginia Woolf and the Visible World, Emily Dalgarno examines Woolf's engagement with notions of the visible. Dalgarno examines how Woolf's writing engages with visible and non-visible realms of experience, and draws on ideas from the diverse fields of psychoanalytic theory, classical Greek tragedy, astronomy, photography and photojournalism. Dalgarno offers textual analyses of Woolf's individual works, including To the Lighthouse, The Waves and Three Guineas arguing for the importance of her ongoing interest in Greek translation.
