Virginia Woolf and Astronomy
This paper is a short investigation of the interconnections between the life and work of Virginia Woolf, an outstanding modernist British writer, and a pervasive popular interest in astronomy in the 1920s and 1930s in Britain. The study seeks to explore the roots and development of Virginia Woolf’s passion for astronomy and the way in which some of the popular discourses on astronomy of her epoch are reflected in her writings.
