Orlando, Paperback (December 2014)
Orlando tells the tale of an extraordinary individual who lives through history first as a man, then as a woman. At its heart is the figure of Woolf's friend and lover, Vita Sackville-West, and Knole, the historic home of the Sackvilles. Orlando mocks the conventions of biography and history and wryly examines sexual double standards.
Reading Modernist Poetry, Hardback (April 2010)
This text provides close examinations of key poems by T.S. Eliot, Ezra Pound, W.B. Yeats, and many others. It considers the key techniques employed to orient and disorient the reader, such as diction, rhythm, and allusion while exploring the ideological implications of subject matter and the literary forms and structures of modernist poetry.
Virginia Woolf (Authors in Context), Paperback (April 2009)
Political and social change during Woolf's lifetime led her to address the role of the state and the individual. Michael H. Whitworth shows how ideas and images from contemporary novelists, philosophers, theorists, and scientists fuelled her writing, and how critics, film-makers, and novelists have reinterpreted her work for later generations.
