In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

  • Criticism of Virginia Woolf from 1972 to December 1990:A Selected Checklist
  • Laura Sue Fuderer (bio)

NOTE: This checklist is a supplement to the one by Barbara Weiser which appeared in the Virginia Woolf issue of Modern Fiction Studies in 1972, which in turn supplemented that by Maurice Beebe in the Spring issue in 1956. Because preliminary searches produced 1,171 citations referring to Virginia Woolf (not including dissertations), it was evident that inclusion in this checklist would have to be severely restricted. Consequently, in addition to omitting dissertations and book reviews, this list excludes articles less than five pages in length. The list is divided into sections, beginning with "Bibliographies" and "Biography," followed by a large "General" category that is subdivided into "Books" and "Articles." The general sections include criticism that does not focus on a particular work by Woolf or that involves more than one work of hers. The other sections are arranged alphabetically according to Woolf's works.
