Virginia Woolf and the Self and Other in The Voyage Out and Mrs Dalloway
MetadataShow full item record
Virginia Woolf was a remarkable and complicated writer. By looking at her novels The Voyage Out (1915) and Mrs Dalloway (1925) I will show in what way Virginia Woolf portrayed the Self and Other. In The Voyage Out English people go to South America and meet the Other. In Mrs Dalloway the colonial Other is there, but never in plain sight. This thesis shows that the Other can be found everywhere, also where you would least expect it.
