This paper means to illustrate how Woolf’s macrotext can be read according to an ecopacifist perspective. By focussing first on the pacifism of Three Guineas and then by analysing the environmentalist contents that variously characterize her fiction (both short and long), I intend to shed light on the close relationship between Woolf’s interests in pacifism, feminism and nature as related to her deep sensitivity towards, and respect for, otherness and difference. Her works widely testify to her ecosystemic sensibility and thus encourage serious reflections on current and global issues about power dynamics related to society, politics, gender and the environment, which concurrently fosters a metanarrative consideration on author-ity.

Abstract

This paper means to illustrate how Woolf’s macrotext can be read according to an ecopacifist perspective. By focussing first on the pacifism of Three Guineas and then by analysing the environmentalist contents that variously characterize her fiction (both short and long), I intend to shed light on the close relationship between Woolf’s interests in pacifism, feminism and nature as related to her deep sensitivity towards, and respect for, otherness and difference. Her works widely testify to her ecosystemic sensibility and thus encourage serious reflections on current and global issues about power dynamics related to society, politics, gender and the environment, which concurrently fosters a metanarrative consideration on author-ity.
