In what may be considered a contrarian critique, Goldman- Rozental (English, Kibbutzim College of Education, Tel Aviv) applies the principles of Aristotle's Poetics to rarely grouped writers of the classicist or modernist label attached to Elliot, Stevens, and Woolf. In chapters informed by Frank Kermode's distinction in his seminal 1960s essay The Modernist between 'impersonal' paleo- and 'personalist' neo-modernists writers, and other critical theory, she attempts to reconcile Eliot's paleo- modernism and Stevens' and Woolfs' neo-modernism. Two of the four chapters are devoted to Woolfe--one to Mrs. Dalloway. Distributed in North America by ISBS.
