BiblioFiles #74: Virginia Woolf and the Nature of Art (What Are We Reading?)


Who’s afraid of Virginia Woolf? Not Missy Andrews! In this “What Are We Reading?” episode of BiblioFiles, Missy talks to the CenterForLit crew about her recent read, To the Lighthouse. As a result, we consider Woolf’s place in the canon of modern literature, the implications of her fragmented style, and her vision of the nature and purpose of art.
