Julija Šukys, a writer of Lithuanian origins, dialogues with DeSalvo’s “Portrait of the Puttana as a Middle-Aged Woolf Scholar,” focusing on the struggle to balance research, writing, and motherhood—and of living and falling in love with feminine literary ghosts (Woolf for DeSalvo and Ona Šimaitė for Šukys). This essay considers DeSalvo’s pedagogy and memoir more broadly and in connection with questions of creativity specifically with regard to bridging the modes of scholarly and creative writing.

Keywords:   Louise DeSalvo, Ona Šimaitė, Vertigo, Puttana, Memoir, Memory, Creative Process
