In the context of today's significant struggles with 'fundamentalisms', media consolidation, and the stifling of dissent, Allen's close readings of Woolf's writings focus on their relevance to our current political situation. Judith Allen approaches Woolf as a theorist of language as well as a theorist of reading, and shows how her writing strategies--sometimes single, resonant words--function to express and enact her politics. Allen also shows how Woolf's complex arguments serve to awaken her readers to the lack of transparency in the dissemination of information, the complexities and power of language, and the urgent need for critical thinking. Key Features *Close readings of Woolf's essays include 'Montaigne,' A Room of One's Own, 'Craftsmanship, Three Guineas and 'Thoughts on Peace in an Air Raid' * Sources range from Michel de Montaigne to the Dixie Chicks, from the Northcliffe Press newspaper empire of World War I to today's mainstream newspapers, Rupert Murdoch's empire, satirical news shows like The Colbert Report and The Daily Show, and social media and the blogosphere
