About this book

These unique essays focus primarily on Woolf's non-fiction and considers her in the context of the modernist marketplace. With research based on new archival material, this volume makes important new contributions to the study of the 'gift economy.'


"This inspiring new collection brings sharply into focus the consummate skill, astute expertise, and canny know-how with which Woolf negotiated, critiqued, and made use of the literary marketplace, maintaining both her 'brand' and her distance. Injecting renewed energy into this fascinating area of Woolf studies, these essays explore Woolf's unique position as writer, reviewer, and publisher, and set into productive dialogue the complex and contradictory impulses at work in her multifaceted engagement with the fluctuations of a varied and shifting economic context." - Kathryn Simpson, Senior Lecturer, University of Birmingham and author of Gifts, Markets, and Economies of Desire in Virginia Woolf

"Virginia Woolf and the Literary Marketplace vividly presents a Woolf we've only infrequently glimpsed until now: one with printer's ink all over her hands. Dubino has assembled an impressive and diverse group of writers who,together, sketch for us a portrait of the artist as willing and savvy marketer. Woolf's writing and reputation will forever look different as a result." - Kevin J. H. Dettmar, Pomona College and Editor of the Oxford University Press Modernist Literature & Culture book series and General Editor of the Longman Anthology of British Literature

"Virginia Woolf is the lens through which these essays survey a rich cultural landscape, taking in periodical studies, translation, the economics and ideology of editing, entrepreneurship and marketing, the culture of censorship, and many other topics that will stimulate new conversations within modernist studies about the intersections of art and commerce. This is a fascinating and wide-ranging collection that will be of interest to anyone in modernist studies." - Mark Hussey, Professor of English, Pace University and General Editor, Harcourt Annotated Edition of the Works of Virginia Woolf
