Less impressive is Virginia Woolf: Centennial Essays, edited by Elaine K. Ginsberg and Laura Moss Gottlieb. The title itself is a bit too awesome for this collection of sixteen essays—papers presented at the Woolf centenary celebration at West Virginia University in 1982. The price, as well, seems a bit steep for conference proceedings even though the conference must have had its dramatic moments considering Joanne Trautmann's opposition to and warning against "the current reductionism in Woolf scholarship."
A young, unmarried painter friend of the Ramsays. She is extremely fond of Mrs. Ramsay and feels a profound sense of emptiness after she dies. She begins a portrait at the beginning of the novel that she cannot finish until the end, ten years later, when the Ramsays reach the Lighthouse.
"When the great clangour of the gong announced solemnly, authoritatively, that all those scattered about, in attics, in bedrooms, on little perches of their own, reading, writing, putting the last smooth to their hair, or fastening dresses, must leave all that, and the little odds and ends on their washing-tables and dressing-tables, and the novels on the bed-tables, and the diaries which were so private, and assemble in the dining-room for dinner.
Virginia Woolf: A Feminist Slant, edited by Jane Marcus, offers a variety of interesting essays somewhat overpowered by the overly congratulatory tone of the editor's Introduction. At the end of that Introduction Marcus writes of "our several circuitous approaches to Virginia Woolf's life and work, our feminist critical slant." The feminist slant is certainly there, but I cannot find the circuitous elements in the collection. Marcus forces an image on the collection of thirteen essays, an image that does not work because at their best the essays are clear and direct presentations of feminist critical positions. And this collection is at its best in Alice Fox's "Virginia Liked Elizabeth," a wonderfully concise yet rich exploration of Woolf's attitudes toward Elizabeth Tudor; in Beverly Ann Schlack's "Fathers in General: The Patriarchy in Virginia Woolf's Fiction"; in Louise De Salvo's "1981: Virginia Woolf at Fifteen"; and in Brenda Silver's Three Guineas Before and After: Further Answers to Correspondents," a nicely written analysis of Woolf's notebooks for Three Guineas and a report of correspondence, positive and negative, received by Woolf after that volume's publication.
In her 1951 study of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, Muriel Spark observed that "The celebration of centenary occasions has become popular; possibly because a hundred is a tidy and workable number and this age loves anything workable with a finish to its surface." Some three decades after Spark's observation, our age is still in love with the "tidy and workable number" and the centenary celebration of Virginia Woolf's birth in 1882 has produced its own share of commemorations—some more workable than others.

Lewis, Wyndham. An old essay by Wyndham Lewis, on idealists and materialists in English literature, which casts Woolf as the exemplary idealist. "In the present chapter I am compelled, however, to traverse the thorny region of feminism, or of militant feminine feeling. I have chosen the back of Mrs. Woolf--if I can put it in this inelegant way--to transport me across it. I am sure that certain critics will instantly object that Mrs. Woolf is extremely insignificant--that she is a purely feminist phenomenon--that she is taken seriously by no one any longer today, except perhaps by Mr. and Mrs. Leavis--and that, anyway, feminism is a dead issue."
Those essays are important feminist contributions to Woolf criticism. I just wish that some of the writers I have cited, as well as other contributors to the volume, threw their nets wider and brought in more nonfeminist criticism in both their texts and notes. Too often, I was struck by what for want of a better word I have to term critical inbreeding in the volume. Nonetheless this is an impressive centenary commemoration.
He was incapable of untruth; never tampered with a fact; never altered a disagreeable word to suit the pleasure or convenience of any mortal being, least of all of his own children, who, sprung from his loins, should be aware from childhood that life is difficult.
