This course will examine some of the religious currents around Woolf--in her family, her society, her friendships and her reading--and explore their relationship to her work. Special attention will be given to Woolf as a religious thinker, the religious-literary practices that shaped her life and work, her experiments with the idea of God, her reimagining of the possibility of religious community, the spiritual trajectories of the modernist movement she helped to shape, and the religious dimensions of her attempt to reimagine literary realism. There will be opportunities in the class to explore Woolf's project both through analytical and creative writing.
