Woolf’s Ambiguities
Tonal Modernism, Narrative Strategy, Feminist Precursors
Molly Hite
In a book that comparesVirginia Woolf's writing with that of the novelist, actress, and feminist activist Elizabeth Robins (1862–1952), Molly Hite explores the fascinating connections between Woolf's aversion to women's "pleading a cause" in fiction and her narrative technique of complicating, minimizing, or omitting tonal cues.
