"Virginia Woolf and Samuel Johnson: Common Readers" by Beth Carole Rosenberg (1996)

English Literature in Transition 39:3, 380-383. 1996.

Beth Carole Rosenberg argues that Samuel Johnson and Vriginia Woolf are in dialogue, and that this relation has been ignored in Woolf criticism Applying a paradigm of dialogic relations as developed by the Russian formalist, Mikhail Bakhtin, she isolates Johnson's influence in this densely argued book.
