Initially overshadowed by Virginia Woolf's death and the Second World War, Between the Acts is now judged to be among the author's most challenging and subtle works. It is about many things, including marriage and jealousy, language and memory, artists, arts and audiences, and a society on the brink of war. In her early plans she called Between the Acts a medley. Included in the mix are literary genres she had written about throughout her career, echoes of her own works and allusions that range from the classics to popular songs. As the extensive notes to this edition show, in writing Between the Acts Woolf drew upon a capacious memory filled by a lifetime of reading, writing, listening and observing.Between the Acts is both Woolf's last novel and the first of her works to be published posthumously. The first English edition was set from her final typescript, edited by Leonard Woolf for publication by the Hogarth Press soon after her death. The text of the Shakespeare Head Press edition is that of the first English edition emended on the basis of a comparison of it with her final typescript. The result is a text that is closer to Between the Acts as Virginia Woolf left it than are any earlier editions.

The highly controversial Three Guineas was Virginia Woolf's most explicit statement of her feminism. Forming part of the prestigious Shakespeare Head Press series of Woolf's works, this authoritative new edition includes her carefully considered selection of photographs, her discursive endnotes and extensive new annotations of her references and allusions. In an illuminating introduction, editor Naomi Black guides the reader through this allusive, highly artful book, discussing its structure and argument and tracing the history of its composition and critical reception. She analyses the text as a representation of Woolf's feminism, including the way in which the book's form subverts male conventions of scholarship. All variants and emendations are listed, but the text itself is free of interventions.
