Acted and unacted parts(English Version)


  • Florentina Taylor


Volumul Acted and unacted parts The Quest for Identity in Virginia Woolf’s Novels, al autoareai Florentina Taylor, publicat la Editura Lumen trateaza in cuprinsul a cinci capitole cautarea identitatii in romanele Virginiei Woolf. In introducerea volumului autoarea face mentiunea ca personajele lui Woolf par a fi interesate doar de identitatea care nu este definita ca identitate, ca exemplu a ceea ce au fost decat a ceea ce sunt de fapt. In primul capitol Intrinsic Identity sunt tratate aspecte privind identitatea barbatului, a femeiei, a copilului si a grupului, pentru ca in capitolul al doilea Extrinsic Identity sa fie prezentate posturile de intelectual, artist, filantropist in opera Virginiei Woolf. Identitatea extrinsica noteaza identitatea in termeni de vocatie, personajele fiind prezentate ca masti erudite si caritabile in societate, precum si cautarea perpetua a artistului intr-o viziune efemera. Identitatea multipla este subiectul dezbatut in cel de-al treilea capitol, prin Multiple Identity autorul facand referire la conditia de androgin, ego-ul multiplu, identitatea dispersata si identitatea asumata. Capitolul patru, Subjective Identity trateaza prin subcapitolele The Body si The Mind, sunt prezentate personajele care oscileaza intre identitati alternative. Este analizata perceptia acestora privind propriul corp si minte si cum este realizata conexiunea dintre acestea, aspecte prezentate din perspectiva intima a personajelor. Capitolul cinci ‘Identity in the Eye of the Beholder’ trateaza in opera studiata aparenta si limbajul personajelor. Capitolul este denumit dupa celebrul citat al lui Richard Jenkins si dezbate impresiile personajelor si imaginea pe care incearca sa transmita prin mijloace de imbracaminte si limbaj. 118
