The Edinburgh Companion to Virginia Woolf and the Arts


This volume is the most authoritative and up-to-date guide to Virginia Woolf's artistic influences and associations. Original, extensive, and newly researched chapters by internationally recognized authors explore the author's ideas about creativity and the nature of art in light of a recent "turn to the visual" in modernist studies, which has brought new focus to visual technologies and the significance of material production.

Sections situate Woolf's work within influential aesthetic theories and practices, including Bloomsbury aesthetics, art, race, Vanessa Bell, painting, theater, music, dance, fashion, entertaining, book design, broadcasting, film, and photography. It draws on archival and historical research, especially within Woolf's manuscripts and the Bloomsbury milieu. World renowned for her expertise on Woolf, Maggie Humm completes a volume that is rich in overlap and all-encompassing in its debates and methodologies.
