Reflections

Virginia Woolf and Her Quaker Aunt, Caroline Stephen

Series:

Kathleen Heininge

This iconoclastic study compares the lives and works of Virginia Woolf and her Quaker aunt, Caroline Stephen, to suggest that Woolf was more deeply influenced by a sense of mysticism than she was by her father’s atheism. Anyone interested in Woolf, Quaker studies, British Modernism, Christianity, and women’s studies would find much here to challenge assumptions.
