"An Analysis of Stream-of-Consciousness Technique in To the Lighthouse"
By: Yanxia Sang
Sang's criticism of Virginia Woolf touches on her contributions to the development of modem novel in both theory and practice. The author specifically goes into detail about To the Lighthouse and how she employs her stylistic techniques of interior monologue and stream of consciousness in this work.
I enjoyed reading on how Woolf's style contributed to writing in the modern era. It is easy to go back and see how older works contributed to literature just by making it a well-known art, but seeing how she pioneered the style of stream of consciousness is very refreshing and enlightening.
"Virginia Woolf's Narrative Strategies: Negotiating Between Public and Private Voices"
By: Anna Snaith
Snaith describes how Virginia Woolf balances her writing style of interior monologues (Private Voices) and how they are published for the public sphere (Public Voices). The author also goes into detail about how Woolf uses the stylistic feature of interior monologues in her works.
I enjoyed how the author referred to interior monologues as private voices, that added another level of depth to Virginia Woolf's writing for me. Because in writing interior monologues, the author is, in essence, publishing their characters private voice, one that would not be expected to be put on display.
"Virginia Woolf in Her Writing Room"
By: Elena Filimon
Filimon's essay speaks of Woolf's essays and how they were a significant contribution, if not the most important, to her writing repertoire. She explores how in her essays Woolf ties in feminism with her other more mainstream styles to create a voice that is uniquely her own.
Even though I do not touch on the feminist view points throughout this portfolio she carries, it doesn't deserve to go without mention. Woolf's feminist views have outlived her and will more than likely continue to do so. She was not afraid to put pen to paper and write about the inadequacies in the world and she really gets the ball rolling in what will be known as the modern feminist movement.
