Similarities Between Virginia Woolf and Doris Lessing
“In this paper, however, I will focus on what I consider to be the strongest and most interesting common point of reference between the two. This is their common distrust of, yet fascination with, the workings of memory, as well as the construction of a personal sense of selfhood, one which develops from an amalgam of ‘fact’ and ‘fiction,’ ‘actuality’ and a sense of a personal ‘truth.’ Both writers, I believe, use their ‘self-representational’ or ‘autobiographical’ texts as the therapeutic means of ‘Self’-discovery, to exorcise past unpleasantness, to ‘fix’ the past, and to create a significant personal present and a sense of ‘truth.'”

Computer-Assisted Analysis of Characterisation in Virginia Woolf’s The Waves
“In this thesis, I seek to analyze the use of characterization in The Waves with the aid of a computer, making particular reference to the twin areas of differentiation and development, and commenting on the interpretative implications for the views of the critics, and for an understanding of the text as a whole.” The thesis ends with an extensive bibliography of criticism on Woolf’s The Waves.
