Theodore’s first monograph, Hellenism and Loss in the Work of Virginia Woolf (2011), constitutes the first book-length study of Woolf’s intriguing relationship with British Hellenism and classical Greek literature; it explores Woolf’s engagement with Greek through the lens of death and mourning, and draws on hitherto unpublished material, the so-called ‘The Greek Notebook’ (1907-1909), a writing notebook in which Woolf kept notes, translations and analyses of Greek texts (including texts by Homer, Plato, Euripides et al.). The book has been reviewed widely and very positively by leading scholars in the field (Emily Dalgarno, Norman Vance) in prestigious scholarly journals.
