The essay examines Virgiania Woolf's last novel, Between the Acts, with reference to her lifelong involvement with history and history-writing. The critical issue of history (not only as account of the past, but also as the present moment) was dealt with by Woolf according to different concepts: firstly as traditional history, the lives of great men in Carlylean style; then Herstory, or history seen from a gendered (feminine) point of view; lastly, in this novel, history as the product of many documents, among which newspaper reports, the radio, photographs, laws, letters, or, as Woolf says, "history in the raw."
