Virginia Woolf, the Intellectual, and the Public Sphere

Synopsis

Melba Cuddy-Keane relates Woolf's literary reviews and essays to early twentieth-century debates about the value of "highbrow" culture; the methods of instruction in universities and adult education; and the importance of an educated public for the realization of democratic goals. Combining a wealth of historical detail with a penetrating analysis of Woolf's essays, this study will alter our views of Woolf, modernism, and intellectual endeavor.
