Summary
"Virginia Woolf, Jean Rhys, and the Aesthetics of Trauma studies the intersections of modernism, sexuality, and subjectivity in the work of two leading women modernists. Over the course of her writing career, each came to confront those aspects of her culture and her personal history that resulted in a degraded sense of female sexuality."--BOOK JACKET
