Review of Virginia Woolf’s Greek Tragedy by Nancy Worman

Research output: Contribution to journalBook Review

Abstract

This monograph constitutes an incisive addition to the considerable and multi-faceted existing scholarship on Woolf’s relationship with Greece. Synthesizing (and expanding on) this scholarship, Worman’s particularly important contribution hinges on her express objective to examine Woolf’s work, mainly the novels, beyond the predominantly historicist, literary-historical framing, which characterizes much of existing scholarship in the field, to emphasize the nuanced ways in which Woolf adopts in her work textual and tonal elements from classical Greek tragedy.
