Aesthetic Construction of the Female Grotesque in Katherine Mansfield and Virginia Woolf: A Study of the Interplay of Life and Literature
2011 0-7734-1565-3
This work examines Mansfield and Woolf through a contextual analysis of the ideas presented by Julia Kristerva, Mary Russo, and Bakhtin. Rodríguez-Salas and Andrés-Cuevas develop the ideas of the female grotesque and metaphorical cannibalism to critique Edwardian society and the hypocrisy surrounding female identity. The authors pay significant attention to Mansfield and Woolf’s depictions of womanhood and maternity, and how they were influenced by external and cultural factors. This text examines a previously unrecognized strategy in Mansfield and Woolf's writings for the subversion of imperial and patriarchal power.
