- Deleuze & Guattari saw us as desiring-machines. They essentially saw the psychoanalytic act as being an act of male aggression. It is keeping this in mind that we should approach Virginia Woolf and her works. This presentation is supplementary to my classes on Woolf. Clarissa Dalloway and to an extent Virginia Woolf, both are desiring-machines/beings. The greatest mapping of desire was done by Freud and this presentation locates Woolf's ambivalent loci of desire within the case history of Dora.
- If anyone refers to these slides, then please cite and refer. These meditations on Woolf will hopefully be later turned into a book. The connection of Dora to Woolf is my own and there exists no literature which has connected them.
