The Modernist fascination with the visual is not only palpable in the development of media and the visual arts, but it becomes a central concern in literature. Modernist texts, particularly the works of Virginia Woolf, turn towards vision to explore new ways of seeing and aesthetic experience. Her novels experiment with phenomena of vision that not merely reflect on modes of perception but create aesthetic vision as a function of the text.
