Allen Fulghum of New York University is the winner of the 2015-16 Angelica Garnett Undergraduate Essay Prize. His paper, “Feeling the Glory, Feeling the Lack: Virginia Woolf, Terrence Malick and the Soldier’s Sublime,” was written for Professor Patrick Deer’s “Understanding Modern War Culture” course. It has since appeared in issue #89 & 90 of the Virginia Woolf Miscellany. A reading of Mrs. Dalloway and the 1998 film The Thin Red Line, the paper includes detailed analyses and strong argumentative control. Committee members noted that textual parallels were not just established, but also mobilized to provide reciprocal illumination of common themes and of the complexities of the relationship between Clarissa and Septimus. In a sophisticated approach, through which the civilian and the soldier are linked by their empathy and vision of the sublime, the two texts are used to explain each other and thus to place Woolf according to another facet of war writing.
