The shape of the moment in Virginia Woolf’s and Katherine Mansfield’s short stories

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This article turns to the key concept of the “moment of revelation” to examine the affinities between the two writers. Correia argues the concept not only encapsulates their senses of what consciousness is like but also drives their experiments in form.
She turns to Woolf’s and Mansfield’s essays, private writings and short fiction to detail their sense of what constitutes “the moment,” which for both writers is intense, “involuntary and powerful.” But Correia observes that Woolf’s “moments” tend towards the philosophical whereas in Mansfield they are centered on the everyday and feeling.
