Herbert Marder:

The Measure of Life : Virginia Woolf's Last Years - gebunden oder broschiert

ISBN: 0801437296

[SR: 3792992], Hardcover, [EAN: 9780801437298], Cornell University Press, Cornell University Press, Book, [PU: Cornell University Press], Cornell University Press, This elegantly written and richly detailed biography tells the story of Virginia Woolf's last ten years, from the creation of her great visionary novel, The Waves, to her suicide in 1941. Herbert Marder looks closely at Woolf's views on totalitarianism and her depictions of Britain under siege to create a remarkable portrait of a mature and renowned writer during a time of rising fascist violence. An awareness of personal danger, Marder says, colored Woolf's actions and consciousness in the years leading up to World War II. She practiced her art with intense dedication and was much admired for her wit and vivacity. But she had previously tried to kill herself, and she asserted her right to die if her manic-depressive illness became intolerable. Waves and water haunted her imagination; visions of drowning recurred in her work. The Measure of Life suggests that Woolf anticipated her suicide, and indeed enacted it symbolically many times before the event. Marder's account of her death emphasizes the importance of her relationship with her doctor and distant cousin, Octavia Wilberforce. Wilberforce's letters about Woolf’s last months, including some previously unpublished passages, appear in the appendix. Staying close to the spirit of Woolf’s own writing, Marder traces her evolving social consciousness in the 1930s, connecting her growing concern with politics and social history with the facts of her daily life. He stresses her endurance as a working writer, and explores her friendships, her complex relations with servants, and her activities at the Hogarth Press. The Measure of Life illuminates the unspoken quarrels and obscure acts of courage that provide a key, as Woolf herself believed, to the hidden roots of our existence. By letting the reader see events as Virginia Woolf saw them, Marder's compelling narrative captures both her unique comic spirit and her profound seri, Having previously written about feminism in Virginia Woolf's work, Herbert Marder turns his analytic abilities to her biography in The Measure of Life. Chronicling the turbulent decade preceding her suicide, during which Woolf expanded and politicized her modernist technique, Marder limns an artist who "drove herself toward her limits." During these years, Woolf actively courted the creative agitation that enabled her to write but that also invited a return of the mental illness she feared. Eighteen months into World War II, as civilization and her mental health both seemed to be crumbling, she consummated a lifelong fascination with drowning by walking into a river, her pockets weighted with stones. Marder notes images of water and submersion throughout her writings, and as he astutely assesses Woolf's late novels, The Years and Three Guineas, he reminds us that her ability to capture subjective perceptions in lyrical prose was matched by her drive to convey "anthropological truth" about human beings and their society. He is equally nuanced in his depiction of Woolf's daily existence, capturing her zest for life as well as the crippling headaches and hallucinations that finally drove her to suicide. Marder's sensitive, discerning consideration of Woolf's final years is a helpful complement to full-scale works like Hermione Lee's magisterial 1997 biography. --Wendy Smith , 2330, Authors, 2327, Arts & Literature, 2, Biographies & Memoirs, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 2376, Historical, 9681297011, Africa, 9681298011, Asia, 1043840, Canadian, 9681299011, Europe, 2394, Holocaust, 9692521011, Latin America, 9692520011, Middle East, 2395, United States, 2, Biographies & Memoirs, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 2445, Women, 2437, Specific Groups, 2, Biographies & Memoirs, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 10159367011, British & Irish, 271602011, European, 10159358011, Regional & Cultural, 10204, History & Criticism, 17, Literature & Fiction, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 10016, British & Irish, 10088, Contemporary, 2162, Dramas & Plays, 10090, Historical, 9805, Horror, 16004661, Humor & Satire, 10159404011, Literature, 10096, Poetry, 10183895011, Shakespeare, 17, Literature & Fiction, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books

The Measure of Life: Virginia Woolf's Last Years - gebrauchtes Buch

ISBN: 9780801437298

ID: 3211927

This elegantly written narrative tells the story of Virginia Woolf's life as a working writer from 1930 until her suicide in 1941 -- turbulent years that inspired powerful social criticism and major novels. Focusing on Woolf during the approach and arrival of World War II, and looking closely at her stand against totalitarianism and her vivid depictions of Britain under siege, Herbert Marder puts Woolf into new perspective. He creates a remarkable portrait of a mature and renowned writer during a time of worldwide crisis. A constant awareness of personal danger, Marder says, colored Woolf's decisions in the years leading up to the war. A manic depressive, she had tried to kill herself in her youth, and still thought of suicide. No matter how bright the present moment seemed (her friends all relished her wit and vivacity) Woolf knew that severe illness and depression lay in wait for her. The Measure of Life traces a pattern of recurring references to water and drowning strongly suggesting that Woolf anticipated her suicide many years before the event. Marder's account of her death pays special attention to her relationship with her doctor and distant cousin, Octavia Wilberforce. An appendix contains Wilberforce's letters about Woolf's last months, including some previously unpublished passages. The Measure of Life adopts a style very close to the mood and spirit of Woolf's own writing. Marder shows the importance of small details of daily life, the unspoken quarrels and casual displays of courage that provide a key, as Woolf herself believed, to the hidden roots of our existence. In this compelling biography Marder brings Woolf to life not by trying to explain her actions but byestablishing her presence and letting the reader see events as she saw them.
