Female Embodiment and Subjectivity in the Modernist Novel

The Corporeum of Virginia Woolf and Olive Moore

«<strong>"Her [Dicksinson] contribution to Woolf studies would be reason enough to invest in this volume, but her recovery of Olive Moore-a novelist about whom very little is know and whose works, with the expection of <em>Spleen</em>, are currently out of print-makes <em>Female Embodiment and Subjectivity in the Modernist Novel</em> essential reading for any scholar who research focuses on British women modernists."<br /></strong><em>-- April Pelt, University of Delaware, Tusla Studies in Women's Literature, Spring 2010</em>»

This study considers the work of two experimental British women modernists writing in the tumultuous interwar period--Virginia Woolf and Olive Moore--by examining four crucial incarnations of female embodiment and subjectivity: female bodies, geographical imagery, national ideology and textual experimentation.

This study considers the work of two experimental British women modernists writing in the tumultuous interwar period--Virginia Woolf and Olive Moore--by examining four crucial incarnations of female embodiment and subjectivity: female bodies, geographical imagery, national ideology and textual experimentation. Dickinson proposes that the ways Mrs. Dalloway, and The Waves by Virginia Woolf and Spleen and Fugue by Olive Moore reflect, expose and criticize physical, geographical and national bodies in the narrative and form of their texts reveal the authors' attempts to try on new forms and experiment with new possibilities of female embodiment and subjectivity.
