Sentencing Orlando

Virginia Woolf and the Morphology of the Modernist Sentence

Edited by Elsa Högberg and Amy Bromley

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • Offers fresh close readings of Woolf's Orlando on the level of the sentence, and draws out the sentence as an important textual unit as well as thematic and contextual concept
  • Presents the first book-length study of the novel in a readable and engaging format, combining forceful intellect and research with an alertness to the text's unique playfulness
  • Covers a wide range of topics including sexuality, gender, materiality, intimacy, nationality, colonialism, religiosity, theatricality and literary intertextuality
  • Demonstrates the value for literary studies of a methodological focus on single sentences that combines readings of contextual history, politics, gender, and art with close textual analysis
