Chapter 3 Works Woolf’s fiction 38 Woolf’s nonfiction 96 Other essays 112 Virginia Woolf ’s oeuvre is sizable. Most of her writings, across several genres, are in print, including a growing number of holograph, draft and facsimile editions of key works. While the latter are probably not of immediate interest to those starting to read Woolf, it is the case that her letters, diaries, memoirs and essays may well be studied along with her novels and short stories. But it is Woolf ’s achievement as a novelist that firstly marks her out as a major modern writer.

Some works are considered diYcult and challenging because of their obvious experimentalism with form, but even in these, as well as in the less experimental works, Woolf ’s writing may also appear disarmingly simple; and such writing is no less demanding of careful attention. ’ is a question derived from one of the most important and influential critics 37 38 The Cambridge Introduction to Virginia Woolf writing on the literature of this period, Erich Auerbach, and the question he asks of a particular paragraph in Woolf ’s novel To the Lighthouse (1927).

Exploration of contexts becomes a matter of secondary as well as primary sources, and this chapter will oVer guidance to the key publications for each context. As an acclaimed high modernist writer, Woolf has not always been discussed in terms of context. Indeed, certain approaches to the context of modernism would encourage a purely formalist understanding of such writing. Yet what is so important about Woolf is that her immediate, intimate, intellectual context in Bloomsbury was itself the theoretical cradle of British formalism, and by extension, of formalist modernism.
