Mondays, April 6-May 11
Time
1-3 p.m.

Virginia Woolf achieved breakthroughs both in feminist thinking and in the “stream of consciousness” psychological novel. We’ll explore how these breakthroughs are shaped by her own psychological history, her path-breaking explorations of women’s lives, and the intellectual ferment of the Bloomsbury movement (which included the economist J. M. Keynes, the novelist E. M. Forster, the art critic Roger Frye, the artist Duncan Grant, the English translator of Freud, James Strachey, and a Jewish founder of the Labour Party, Virginia’s husband, Leonard).

Books: Mrs. Dalloway and To the Lighthouse.
