A Specially Tender Piece of Eternity: Virginia Woolf and the Experience of Time by Teresa Prudente

A Specially Tender Piece of Eternity examines Virginia Woolfs treatment of time both as a theme of her works and as an essential element in her experimental narrative techniques. By drawing on both stylistic analysis and philosophy, Teresa Prudente investigates Paul Riceours concept of a-linear time within Woolfs work, as both the possibility for the subject to enter a timeless temporal dimension (in Orlando and To the Lighthouse) and as a tragic alteration and separation from reality (in Mrs. Dalloway). Through the examination of the meta-narrative elements in Woolfs novels, and of her original employment of interior monologue and free indirect speech, Prudente redefines and reassesses Woolfs experiments in narrative that challenged ineffability while recreating moments of ecstasy.
