Edited by Catherine Bernard – Woolf’s redefinition of the compass of literature and of the complex economy of reading

Encompassing a vast tract of her career as an essayist and especially lesser-known essays, this collection highlights Woolf’s unique capacity to blur the limits of fiction and essay-writing, and to transform the art of reading into a utopian practice. Writing in the present, she knew she was also accountable to the common reader to come and to the very genius of literature.
