Ensayo sobre la contradicción. Virginia Woolf en la pantalla
This book seeks to trace an evolution in policies on sexuality and gender from Virginia Woolf's time to the present day, from the study of the ideological variations between novels and movies. Why the phenomenon of recovering Woolf for the big screen has happened only in the last fifteen years? Adaptations of the novels by this British author are based on the novelist's ideas of postmodern visions. Part of the appeal of Woolf is that her ideas and style are surprisingly modern, and so is her feminist thought, her pioneering attitude in the defense and representation of lesbianism and her ideal of freedom.
