De Virginia Woolf à Susan Gubar : réécrire A Room of One’s Own au tournant du XXIe siècle

Abstract : This article focuses on the textual dialogue established by the North American feminist literary critic, Susan Gubar, with the British modernist author, Virginia Woolf, and her highly influential feminist essay entitled A Room of One’s Own. This dialogue started as the transatlantic posterity of the essay reached its height in the 1970s and 1980s, a period during which Susan Gubar co-authored with Sandra M. Gilbert many works which drew from Woolf’s reflection on gender and literature. Susan Gubar then published, in 2006, a rewriting of the 1929 essay entitled Rooms of Our Own. The literary critic borrows Woolf’s narrative and poetic strategies in order to retrace the debates and the issues which have influenced the evolution of North American feminist literary criticism in the second half of the 20th century. Susan Gubar thus offers a tribute to Woolf as a feminist foremother while reassessing her position amidst the numerous influences which have shaped today’s feminism.
