Blurb/Shorttext:
This book is for people who are interested in literature, especially Virginia Woolf's writing and the visual arts. The reader can see how visual arts work in words, particularly writings about the city of London. With the inspiration of fine arts, Woolf's writings show a creative path, which is unique for 'her own'. The idea of ‘androgyny' shows the transformation from ‘binary oppositions' to hybrid textuality. This illustrates the way which Woolf uses the aesthetics of the Bloomsbury Group in writing. Woolf's ‘flâneuse' shows the androgynous ‘dual vision' in _Jacob's Room_. William James's conception of psychology helps the reader to see Woolf's ‘halo' metaphor. Woolf criticises the Victorian aesthetics of Julia Cameron's photography, developing the Post- Impressionist female gaze to show emotion, feeling and thought. Woolf's London narratives show a transformation of style from Impressionism to Post- Impressionism, as emotions of the female gaze can subvert the patriarchal society in Eleanor's ‘angle of vision' in _The Years_.
