The Stage of Scholarship: Crossing the Bridge from Harrison to Woolf

  • Sandra D. Shattuck


It is an unsettling experience to read Jane Ellen Harrison’s Ancient Art and Ritual side by side with Virginia Woolf s Between the Acts. The uncanny reverberations that traverse from the scholarly work into the pages of the fictional piece compound themselves until one would almost say that Woolfs work is a fictional rewrite of Harrison’s scholarship. It is as if Woolf were staging Harrison’s work, providing a theatre where creative scholarship and creative writing combine in their efforts at taking up questions about art, society, religion, the family, history, war.
