BeschreibungThis book offers an in-depth treatment of Woolf's representations of space and place. Eleven essays contribute not only to Woolf studies but also to emergent debates concerning modernism's relations to empire and geography. They offer innovative and interdisciplinary readings on topics such as London's imperial spaces and the gendering of space.

Pressestimmen'Each chapter offers illuminating and innovative readings of space and place in Woolf. This is an excellent collection of essays and will be a critical touchstone for years to come.' - Dr Jane Goldman, Department of English, University of Dundee, UK '...the range and diversity of its essays is perhaps the most striking feature of this collection.' - Eric Sandberg, Partial Answers 'It is a volume that should be a reference point for all future studies of Woolf, not only those interested in work on spatial themes, and the editors should be commended for the care and attention they have devoted to the selection and presentation of the essays, which often connent and overlap in their interests, enriching the coherence of the volume overall.' - Andrew Thacker, The Review of English Studies
