    1. To the Lighthouse Virginia Woolf

    2. As a woman, I have no country. As a woman, I want no country. As a woman, my country is the whole world. Virginia Woolf

    4. Bloomsbury Group • Dedicated to a rejection of the strictures and taboos of Victorianism: Religious, Artistic, Social, Sexual • Known for “intellectual snobbery” • Term “Bloomsbury” has now become synonymous with “snob”

    6. A statement about time and death and the permanence of art. Virginia Woolf

    7. More VW • 1941 - Becomes ill in March with anxiety and depression. • -Drowns herself in the River Ouse • -Body found three weeks later • Against you I will fling myself, unvanquished and unyielding, O Death! • - The Waves

    8. Once conform, once do what other people do because they do it, and lethargy steals over all the finer nerves and faculties of the soul. She becomes all outer show and inward emptiness; dull, callous, and indifferent. • Virginia Woolf

    9. Modernism As a concept ‘modernism’ is easier to employ than to define. At its broadest it refers not just to innovation in literature but to the radical remaking of all the arts that went on in Europe and America in the year 1914. (From an Outline of English Literature by Pat Rogers )

    10. To the Lighthouse • TTL shows how, in major modernist fiction, the novel not only approaches poetry, but in a certain sense becomes it. • TTL is set in a holiday house party in the vanished pre-1914 world. It has its basis in the personal experiences of Virginia Woolf and her family and friends… • Like other modernist texts, TTL is much concerned with the nature of art and artistic creation, exemplified in the novel by the painter Lily Briscoe, whose art is clearly meant to be a metaphor for Virginia Woolf’s own… (From an Outline of English Literature by Pat Rogers 389)

    11. Stream of Consciousness • Coined in 1890 and became popular in the early twentieth century – “Flow of conscious experience” • Creates the impression that the reader is eavesdropping on the flow of conscious experience, gaining intimate access to a character’s private “thoughts” • Involves presenting in written text something that is neither entirely verbal nor textual • Lays open the imagined inner lives of characters (http://www.litencyc.com/php/stopics.php?rec=true&UID=1062)

    12. The best prose is that which is most full of poetry. Virginia Woolf
