This thesis aims to analyze Virginia Woolf’s final novel Between the Acts, published posthumously in 1941, by tracing its literary representation of architecture. Accordingly, it follows the spatial movement in the novel by recreating in-between spaces as private/ public, indoor/ outdoor, and associated with femininity/ masculinity. While doing this, it discusses the novel in relation to the issue of domesticity and within the context of country houses during the interwar years, corresponding to the so-called “romantic modern” period in Britain.
