Virginia Woolf and the Power of Story
From novels to films, our everyday lives are filled with stories that comfort and connect us and enable new ways of thinking. One of the most innovative writers in modern history, Virginia Woolf changed the landscape of fiction and challenged our notions of what it means to be human. Her novels invite readers to envision a world in which stories have the power to effect positive change. This book explores the phenomenon of story as practiced by Woolf, interpreting her work in the context of literary Darwinism--a critical approach focusing on patterns of innate human behavior.
