Contradictory Woolf is a collection of 37 essays selected from approximately 200 papers presented at the 21st Annual International Conference on Virginia Woolf, hosted by the University of Glasgow June 9-12, 2011.
The essays explore the theme of contradiction in Woolf’s writing, including her use of the word “but,” in relation to auto/biography, art, philosophy, cognitive science, sexuality, animality, class, mathematics, translation, annotation, poetry and war.
Five keynote addresses — by Judith Allen, Suzanne Bellamy, Marina Warner, Patricia Waugh and Michael Whitworth — are among the essays collected in this volume. It also includes a preface by Jane Goldman and an introduction by editors Derek Ryan and Stella Bolaki.
