9780944473290: Virginia Woolf, 'The Hours': The British Museum Manuscript of Mrs. Dalloway

This is a transcription of the holograph version of Virginia Woolf's fourth novel. Woolf worked on the manuscript between June 1923 and October 1924 while, at the same time, composing essays for Common Reader 1. The central text is from three manuscript notebooks in the British Library; also included in the volume are transcriptions of manuscript material from the Berg Collection of the New York Public Library. Helen Wussow's critical introduction provides a provocative reading of The Hours, the process of writing, and contemporary theories of textual editing. "The Hours": The British Museum Manuscript of "Mrs. Dalloway" is a major contribution to the study of Virginia Woolf, modern literature, and the politics of editing.

About the Author:

Review:

...an absolute must for all university libraries. Professor Wussow (following Reiman and Silver) has given a brilliant solution to the problem by placing The Hours in dialogue with all the other Dalloway texts...Woolf wanted in her novel to sharpen dialogue till each sentence tears its way like a harpoon...The Hours puts us in the smithy of the writer's mind, where sentences are forged into harpoons. (Jane Marcus, CUNY Graduate Center and The City College of New York)

Helen M. Wussow's scrupulous transcription of the manuscript versions of Mrs. Dalloway will unquestionably enhance our understanding of this major modernist novel. Wussow brings out temporal and spatial dimensions not just of the finished novel The Hours but also of Virginia Woolf's creative processes. The transcription shows just how illuminating modern manuscripts can be. (S. P. Rosenbaum, editor Virginia Woolf's Women and Fiction: The Manuscript Versions of A Room of One's Own)
