Modernist Exoticism: The Voyage Out and In
Pages 21

Virginia Woolf’s The Voyage Out, conceptualised in several drafts between 1907/1908 and 1913 and eventually published in 1915,1 may very well fall into the temporal framework of this study, but it occupies a special place within it, despite its colonial South American setting. It is therefore not surprising that this study ends here, with a glimpse of how women writers would expand and develop the idea and representation of self and other at around the time of the First World War and in a modernist aesthetic.
