Virginia Woolf, the War Without, the War Within

Chapter 1 begins with a swift summary of fascism's rise in both England and Germany from 1929 to 1931: or what I call the war without.” It then notes Woolf's response, including her scrapbooks, which collected articles on tyranny and war. As Woolf seeks out a bound diary book in June 1929 and embarks on her third and final diary stage, her mind also turns inward to the lonely artistic battle she foresees with The Waves. Both her diary and that novel reveal what she will further argue in Three Guineas: that the private and the public are inseparably linked. In October of 1929, Woolf publishes a tribute to “Dorothy Wordsworth's Journals,” a vivid illustration of her ability to choose diaries and to find in them just what she needs to assist her public prose.
