Character Role Analysis

Professor von X

Woolf mentions the actual names of a few people who might be considered antagonists to the argument of her protagonists, but it really all boils down to Professor von X. Why the antagonist? Not just because he writes mean books about women, but also because he puts women down in order to make himself feel better. Not too cool, Professor von X.
