Subject: Virginia Woolf, Shakespeare, and the Renaissance
Many thanks to those of you who have answered my queries about Virginia
Woolf's relation the Renaissance over the course of two or three years
now. I'm pleased to announce that *Virginia Woolf: Reading the
Renaissance,* a collection of new essays by Woolf schoars and
Renaissance scholars, will be published this spring by Ohio University
Included will be Diana Henderson on *Cymbeline* in *Mrs. Dalloway,* Lisa
Low on "Comus" in *The Voyage Out,* Anne Fernald on Woolf and the idea
of the Renaissance "memory palace," Diane Gillespie on Woolf and Donne,
especially in *The Waves,* Nicola Luckhurst on Woolf and Montaigne,
Rebecca Laroche on *A Room of One's Own* as it comments on the
Elizabethan Petrarchan sonnet, David McWhirter on "Woolf, Eliot, and the
Politics of Modernist Nostalgia," myself on the Michelet-like Romantic
basis of Woolf's Renaissance, and others.
If you think this is a book that you might consider using, directly or
indirectly, in a class of yours, please let me know privately.
