This unique collection of essays, edited by leading Woolf scholar, brings together for the first time a serious consideration of Virginia Woolf’s writing within the political context of fascism. Virginia Woolf and Fascism probes Woolf’s fiction and non-fiction from Mrs. Dalloway in 1927 to Between the Acts , 1941, for her responses not only to the growing menaces of dictators abroad, but also to mounting evidence of fascist ideology at home in England. The essays present a portrait of Woolf as a woman writer who was politically engaged, and actively protesting against a worldview which aggressively targeted women for oppression.
