This paper focuses on Woolf’s The Waves and its visual modality as consisting of three components. The first deals with the level of formal structure and involves a formal comparison with spatial arts. The second is related to Woolf’s visual sensibility and to the verbal translation of visual stimuli in order both to describe the phenomenal world and to convey emotions by means of images. The third relates to the ontological dimension of the gaze-modality which structures the whole text and represents an inquiry into the essence of reality.

Abstract

This paper focuses on Woolf’s The Waves and its visual modality as consisting of three components. The first deals with the level of formal structure and involves a formal comparison with spatial arts. The second is related to Woolf’s visual sensibility and to the verbal translation of visual stimuli in order both to describe the phenomenal world and to convey emotions by means of images. The third relates to the ontological dimension of the gaze-modality which structures the whole text and represents an inquiry into the essence of reality.
