We had simply been given a strong imaginative and prescient of that socialist, feminist, pacifist Woolf within the 3 essays in "Reading perform II. " In "Thinking again via Our Mothers," Marcus elaborates Woolf s articulation of the collective subconscious traditionally particular to the feminine artist. In "No extra Horses: Virginia Woolf on artwork and Propaganda," Marcus argues that Woolf was once a visionary, instead of in the community pragmatic, polemicist, who labored (in Woolf's personal word from 3 Guineas) in "freedom from unreal loyalties. " The essay that offers Marcus her name for this quantity, "Art and Anger: Elizabeth Robins and Virginia Woolf," argues, safely, for the efficacy, volume, and suppression of feminist rage in writing that has "great violence beneath [its] polished floor.
