This study offers a fresh evaluation of Woolf's works, including the major novels, short stories, biographies, critical essays, and reviews. It reveals that even those areas of her work that have been consistently ignored by critics fit an overall pattern. Woolf's modernism is unmistakable. She belongs in the company of Joyce, Eliot, and Faulkner, yet while espousing modernist principles, she worked in a prose style that remains well within the traditional forms. Like all modernists, she was interested in creating a more authentic fiction, a more realistic portrayal of character. Yet she was doubtful of fiction's ability to reflect a true reality, and of the capacity of language to express it. This wistful doubtfulness informs her stories, essays, and novels with an outlook that is strikingly modern. An extensive bibliography of primary and secondary sources is included.
