Palgrave Advances in Virginia Woolf Studies is an indispensable guide to the ever-expanding body of criticism on Virginia Woolf. Written for both researchers and teachers of Woolf, it includes comprehensive and insightful chapters on different approaches to Woolf, including feminist, historicist, postcolonial and biographical. The contributors to the collection are all scholars of international standing, and the essays provide concise summaries of the key works in the field as well as an engaging description of the approach itself, its evolution and future directions.

'This superb collection brings Virginia Woolf scholarship into the twenty-first century. Providing an assessment and survey of the state of recent critical approaches to Woolf's writing, the volume casts its spotlight on critical studies from the 1960s onward. Each lucid and accessible essay covers a key theoretical approach, while interlacing and overlapping the author's perspective on his/her subject to engage in dialogue with other chapters. Theoretically rich and sophisticated, probing and comprehensive, the volume fulfills its promise to help illuminate the study of Woolf for her readers.' - Professor Merry Pawlowski, California State University, Bakersfield, USA
