- “The Artist/Intellectual as Politician,” a critical essay written by Virginia Brackett, Ph.D., associate professor of English and director of the Honors Program at Park University, has been published in Woolf Editing/Editing Woolf: Selected Papers from the Eighteenth Annual Conference on Virginia Woolf.

However, writing without an editor and unfettered by public input or opinion, she regained her successful approach to produce a “new biography” in her private correspondence.
