Eco-Feminism in Select Novels Of Virginia Woolf
Feminism is a struggle for similarity of women, an achievement to make women equal to men. The definition of feminism sees it as the struggle against all forms of patriarchal and sexiest attack. Virginia Woolf can be appreciated as a protoâ€ecoâ€feminist and critic, her work contributing to recent concerns of these practices, which are related in turn to postcolonial, post humanist, materialist, and place studies. Her interest in the natural world also serves a recent turn in modernist studies, which until the last decade was cast largely in urban and technical terms. Woolf was immersed in natural history as a child. Her work comments on the gendering of nature, culture and scientific study, and engages in the queering of nature. Woolf sensitively records the consciousness and capabilities of other than human animals. She represents the boundaries between humans and the natural world as porous. Characters register a range of reactions to the natural world including a sense of cosmic indifference, momentary order, and affirmative merger.
