Virginia Woolf - Author

About the Author

Virginia Woolf is now recognized as a major twentieth-century author, a great novelist and essayist and a key figure in literary history as a feminist and a modernist. Born in 1882, she was the daughter of the editor and critic Leslie Stephen, and suffered a traumatic adolescence after the deaths of her mother, in 1895, and her step-sister Stella, in 1897, leaving her subject to breakdowns for the rest of her life. Her father died in 1904 and two years later her favourite brother Thoby died suddenly of typhoid.

With her sister, the painter Vanessa Bell, she was drawn into the company of writers and artists such as Lytton Strachey and Roger Fry, later known as the Bloomsbury Group. Among them she met Leonard Woolf, whom she married in 1912, and together they founded the Hogarth Press in 1917, which was to publish the work of T. S. Eliot, E. M. Forster and Katherine Mansfield as well as the earliest translations of Freud. Woolf lived an energetic life among friends and family, reviewing and writing, and dividing her time between London and the Sussex Downs. In 1941, fearing another attack of mental illness, she drowned herself.

Her first novel, The Voyage Out, appeared in 1915, and she then worked through the transitional Night and Day (1919) to the highly experimental and impressionistic Jacob’s Room (1922). From then on her fiction became a series of brilliant and extraordinarily varied experiments, each one searching for a fresh way of presenting the relationship between individual lives and the forces of society and history. She was particularly concerned with women’s experience, not only in her novels but also in her essays and her two books of feminist polemic, A Room of One’s Own (1929) and Three Guineas (1938).

Her major novels include Mrs Dalloway (1925), the historical fantasy Orlando (1928), written for Vita Sackville-West, the extraordinarily poetic vision of The Waves (1931), the family saga of The Years (1937), and Between the Acts (1941).

The Waves

The Waves

Author: Virginia Woolf Format: Hardback Release Date: 30/09/2018

The Waves is one of the greatest achievements in modern literature. Commonly considered the most important, challenging and ravishingly poetic of Virginia Woolf's novels, it was in her own estimation 'the most complex and difficult of all my books'. This edition will be the most authoritative, most fully collated and annotated text available to scholars to date, and for considerable time to come. It maps the text of The Waves from the first British edition to all other editions published in Woolf's lifetime, as well as to all extant proofs. The text is presented in clearly readable form, with page-by-page direction to emendation, variants, and notes. The substantial introduction includes a detailed account of the novel's composition, publication and early critical reception. There are extensive explanatory notes on the text, a full chronology of composition and publication and a more general chronology covering Woolf's life and works.

Flush: A Biography

Flush: A Biography

Author: Virginia Woolf Format: Hardback Release Date: 28/09/2018

Flush, an imaginative biography of Elizabeth Barrett Browning's cocker spaniel, is a cross-genre blend of fiction and non fiction. This unusual biography traces the life of Flush from his carefree existence in the country to his adoption by Ms Browning and his travails in London, leading up to his final days in a bucolic Italy. Woolf ostensibly uses the life of a dog as pointed social criticism, ranging across topics from feminism and environmentalism to class conflict. She creates a biography that works on three levels. It is overtly a biography of a dog's life. Since this dog is of interest primarily for its owner, the work is also an impressionistic biography of Elizabeth Barrett during the most dramatic years of her life. At this level, Flush mostly recapitulates the romantic legend of Barrett Browning's life: early confinement by a mysterious illness and a doting but tyrannical father; a passionate romance with an equally talented poet; an elopement that permanently estranges the father, but which allows Barrett Browning to find happiness and health in Italy. On a third level, the book gives Woolf an opportunity to return to some of her most frequent topics: the glory and misery of London; the Victorian mindset; class differences; and the ways in which women oppressed by `fathers and tyrants' may find freedom.

To The Lighthouse

To The Lighthouse

Author: Virginia Woolf Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 24/09/2018

Virginia Woolf (1882-1941) is now generally recognized as the author of two of the twentieth century's greatest literary works,To the Lighthouse and Mrs. Dalloway, both of which employ a style of narration that has come to be known as stream of consciousness because it focuses on the interior-and not always logical-movement of thought that make up the better part of most people's psyches.The Ramsays are holidaying in the Hebrides, and young James Ramsay is keen to visit a lighthouse; his father and mother respond quite differently to the idea, but his father prevails. Through this and a variety of other incidents a portrait of the family and their friends comes into focus; most clearly of all, at the family's centre, the consciousness of Mrs. Ramsay emerges. In the book's final section, Mrs. Ramsay has died, as have two of the Ramsay children-Andrew in the war, Prue in childbirth. In this sombre context, James and his father finally make the trip to the lighthouse. This Broadview edition provides a reliable text at a very reasonable price. It contains textual notes but no appendices or introduction.

Virginia Woolf in Richmond

Virginia Woolf in Richmond

Author: Virginia Woolf, Leonard Woolf Format: Hardback Release Date: 01/09/2018

I ought to be grateful to Richmond & Hogarth, and indeed, whether it's my invincible optimism or not, I am grateful. aA ' Virginia Woolf Although more commonly associated with Bloomsbury, Virginia and her husband Leonard Woolf lived in Richmond-upon-Thames for ten years from the time of the First World War (1914-1924). Refuting the common misconception that she disliked the town, this book explores her daily habits as well as her intimate thoughts while living at the pretty house she came to love - Hogarth House. Drawing on information from her many letters and diaries, the editor reveals how Richmond's relaxed way of life came to influence the writer, from her experimentation as a novelist to her work with her husband and the Hogarth Press, from her relationships with her servants to her many famous visitors.

Orlando

Orlando

Author: Virginia Woolf, Tilda Swinton Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 05/07/2018

'He stretched himself. He rose. He stood upright in complete nakedness before us, and while the trumpets pealed 'Truth! Truth! Truth!' we have no choice left but confess - he was a woman.' A young man in the court of the ageing Queen Elizabeth I, the beautiful Orlando seems to belong everywhere and nowhere. One morning, Orlando awakens transformed - transported into the eighteenth century, and the body of a woman. One of the twentieth century's defining imaginings of queer identity, Orlando is a book of radical possibilities -boy and girl, past and future, nature and magic, life and history, love and literature. One of the most thrilling love letters in all literature, it trespasses thrillingly over the borders of place, time and self.

Flush

Flush

Author: Virginia Woolf Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 05/07/2018

Flush was an English cocker spaniel who belonged to the nineteenth-century poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning. Virginia Woolf learned of him from the love letters Elizabeth wrote to her future husband, fellow poet Robert Browning, and found `the figure of their dog made me laugh so, I couldn't resist making him a Life.' The resulting `biography' combines sensuous imaginative description with sharp social comment, and brings Woolf's unsentimental humour and insight to the fore. We see Flush as loyal confidant to Elizabeth on her sickbed at Wimpole Street, and from his jealous perspective we witness her courtship by Browning, their elopement and new life in Italy. The perfect accessible introduction to Woolf's genius, a unique blend of fact and fiction, Flush is perhaps best read in the company of a canine companion. This edition includes the four original illustrations by Vanessa Bell and an afterword by Margaret Forster. Cover designed by the award-winning Finnish designer Aino-Maija Metsola

A Room of One's Own (Vintage Feminism Short Edition)

Vintage Feminism: classic feminist texts in short form WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY JEANETTE WINTERSON `What conditions are necessary for the creation of works of art?' Security, confidence, independence, a degree of prosperity - a room of one's own. All things denied to most women around the world living in Virginia Woolf's time, and before her time, and since. In this funny, provoking and insightful polemic, Virginia Woolf challenges her audience of young women to work on even in obscurity, to cultivate the habit of freedom, and to exercise the courage to write exactly what we think.

Orlando A Biography

Orlando A Biography

Author: Virginia Woolf Format: Hardback Release Date: 07/06/2018

Orlando, a novel loosely based on the life of Vita Sackville-West, Virginia Woolf's lover and friend, is one of Woolf's most playful and tantalizing works. This edition provides readers with a fully collated and annotated text. A substantial introduction charts the birth of the novel in the romance between Woolf and Sackville-West, and the role it played in the evolution and eventual fading of that romance. Extensive explanatory notes reveal the extent to which the novel is embedded in Woolf's knowledge of Sackville-West, her family history and her writings. Thorough annotation of every literary and historical allusion in the text establishes its significance as a parodic literary and social history of England, as well as a spoof of one of Woolf's favorite forms, the biography. It also includes all variants from the extant proofs, as well as editions of the novel produced during Woolf's lifetime.

Mrs Dalloway

Mrs Dalloway

Author: Virginia Woolf, Elaine Showalter Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 07/06/2018

'She always had the feeling that it was very, very dangerous to live even one day' On a June morning in 1923, Clarissa Dalloway is preparing for a party and remembering her past. Elsewhere in London, Septimus Smith is suffering from shell-shock and on the brink of madness. Their days interweave and their lives converge as the party reaches its glittering climax. Here, Virginia Woolf perfected the interior monologue and the novel's lyricism and accessibility have made it one of her most popular works.

To the Lighthouse

To the Lighthouse

Author: Virginia Woolf, Hermione Lee Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 07/06/2018

'The Lighthouse was then a silvery, misty-looking tower with a yellow eye that opened suddenly and softly in the evening' To the Lighthouse is at once a vivid impressionistic depiction of a family holiday, and a meditation on marriage, on parenthood and childhood, on grief, tyranny and bitterness. For years now the Ramsays have spent every summer in their holiday home in Scotland, and they expect these summers will go on forever; but as the First World War looms, the integrity of family and society will be fatally challenged. With a psychologically introspective mode, the use of memory, reminiscence and shifting perspectives gives the novel an intimate, poetic essence, and at the time of publication in 1927 it represented an utter rejection of Victorian and Edwardian literary values. The Penguin English Library - collectable general readers' editions of the best fiction in English, from the eighteenth century to the end of the Second World War.

Mrs. Dalloway

Mrs. Dalloway chronicles a June day in the life of Clarissa Dalloway-a day that is taken up with running minor errands in preparation for a party and that is punctuated, toward the end, by the suicide of a young man she has never met. In giving an apparently ordinary day such immense resonance and significance-infusing it with the elemental conflict between death and life-Virginia Woolf triumphantly discovers her distinctive style as a novelist. Originally published in 1925, Mrs. Dalloway is Woolf's first complete rendering of what she described as the "e;luminous envelope"e; of consciousness: a dazzling display of the mind's inside as it plays over the brilliant surface and darker depths of reality.

Night and Day

Night and Day

Author: Virginia Woolf Format: Hardback Release Date: 11/01/2018

A romantic comedy in which the central characters have a distinctly unromantic disposition, Night and Day was Virginia Woolf's second novel. Written during the First World War, the novel is set in the suffrage campaign of the pre-war years. Often understood as a deliberate exercise in classicism, it has been neglected by critics drawn to Woolf's later more overtly experimental fictions. This edition provides a substantial introduction, which traces the chronology of the novel's composition and publication, and which draws on previously neglected sources to trace its reception. Its extensive explanatory notes clarify the novel's relation to Woolf's reading and to the literary, cultural, and historical context of its time, with attention both to the time of its setting and its composition. Maps locate the key settings in London and England. The introduction and textual apparatus trace the complex history of the impressions and editions issued during Woolf's lifetime.

Katharine Hilbery is beautiful and privileged, but uncertain of her future. She must choose between becoming engaged to the oddly prosaic poet William Rodney, and her dangerous attraction to the passionate Ralph Denham. As she struggles to decide, the lives of two other women - women's rights activist Mary Datchet and Katharine's mother, Margaret, struggling to weave together the documents, events and memories of her own father's life into a biography - impinge on hers with unexpected and intriguing consequences. Virginia Woolf's delicate second novel is both a love story and a social comedy, yet it also subtly undermines these traditions, questioning a woman's role and the very nature of experience.

Jacob's Room

Jacob's Room

Author: Virginia Woolf Format: eBook Release Date: 18/11/2017

Jacob's Room is Virginia Woolf's first truly experimental novel. It is a portrait of a young man, who is both representative and victim of the social values which led Edwardian society into war. Jacob's life is traced from the time he is a small boy playing on the beach, through his years in Cambridge, then in artistic London, and finally making a trip to Greece, but this is no orthodox Bildungsroman. Jacob is presented in glimpses, in fragments, as Woolf breaks down traditional ways of representing character and experience. The novel's composition coincided with the consolidation of Woolf's interest in feminism, and she criticizes the privileged thoughtless smugness of patriarchy, `the other side', `the men in clubs and Cabinets'. Her stylistic innovations are conscious attempts to realize and develop women's writing and the novel dramatizes her interest in the ways both language and social environments shape differently the lives of men and women.

Voyage Out

Voyage Out

Author: Virginia Woolf Format: eBook Release Date: 18/11/2017

The Voyage Out (1915) is the story of a rite of passage. When Rachel Vinrace embarks for South America on her father's ship she is launched on a course of self-discovery in a modern version of the mythic voyage. Virginia Woolf knew all too well the forms that she was supposed to follow when writing of a young lady's entrance into the world, and she struggled to subvert the conventions, wittily and assiduously, rewriting and revising the novel many times. The finished work is not, on the face of it, a `portrait of the artist'. However, through The Voyage Out readers will discover Woolf as an emerging and original artist: not identified with the heroine, but present everywhere in the socialsatire and the lyricism and patterning of consciousness.

To the Lighthouse

To the Lighthouse

Author: Virginia Woolf Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 26/10/2017

When Mrs Ramsay tells her guests at her summer house on the Isle of Skye that they will be able to visit the nearby lighthouse the following day, little does she know that this trip will only be completed ten years later by her husband, and that a gulf of war, grief and loss will have opened in the meantime. As each character tries to readjust their memories and emotions with the shifts of time and reality, this long-delayed excursion will also prove to be a journey of self-discovery and fulfilment for them. Rich in symbolism, daring in style, elegiac in tone and encapsulating Virginia Woolf's ideas on life, art and human relationships, To the Lighthouse is a landmark of twentieth-century literature and one of the high points of early Modernism.

A Room of One's Own

A Room of One's Own

Author: Virginia Woolf Format: Hardback Release Date: 19/10/2017

In this extraordinary essay, Virginia Woolf examines the limitations of womanhood in the early twentieth century. With the startling prose and poetic licence of a novelist, she makes a bid for freedom, emphasizing that the lack of an independent income, and the titular `room of one's own', prevents most women from reaching their full literary potential. As relevant in its insight and indignation today as it was when first delivered in those hallowed lecture theatres, A Room of One's Own remains both a beautiful work of literature and an incisive analysis of women and their place in the world. This Macmillan Collector's Library edition of A Room of One's Own by Virginia Woolf features an afterword by the British art historian Frances Spalding. Designed to appeal to the booklover, the Macmillan Collector's Library is a series of beautiful gift editions of much loved classic titles.

On the same day, Septimus Warren Smith, a shell-shocked survivor of the Great War, commits suicide, and casual mention of his death at the party provokes in Clarissa thoughts of her own isolation and loneliness. Bold and experimental, Virginia Woolf's Mrs Dalloway is a landmark in twentieth-century fiction and a book that gets better and better with every reading.

Monday or Tuesday

Author: Virginia Woolf Format: eBook Release Date: 15/08/2017

A stylistically innovative volume of short stories from the groundbreaking author of Mrs. Dalloway, To the Lighthouse, and Orlando. First presented as one volume in 1921, Monday or Tuesday was the only collection of stories Virginia Woolf published in her lifetime. Written in her experimental, stream-of-consciousness style, these eight unconventional stories eschew traditional plot and character development in favor of interior thoughts, emotions, memories, and associations. From a heron's in-flight perceptions in ';Monday or Tuesday' to a ghost couple searching for treasure in ';A Haunted House,' from a meditation on color as a catalyst for imagination and emotional connections in ';Blue and Green' to the invented stories of a narrator on a train observing a fellow passenger in ';An Unwritten Novel,' Woolf's poetic explorations take readers in directions previously unexamined, revealing an intensity of feeling and depth of insight that would continue to characterize her later work. Michael Cunningham, author of the Pulitzer Prizewinning novel The Hours, has said of Woolf: ';She was doing with language something like what Jimi Hendrix does with a guitar.' Taken together, these lyrical and evocative stories create a rich mosaic of the artist's radically unique sensibility. Monday or Tuesday includes';A Haunted House,' ';A Society,' ';Monday or Tuesday,'';An Unwritten Novel,' ';The String Quartet,' ';Blue and Green,' ';Kew Gardens,' and ';The Mark on the Wall.'

This book contains now several HTML tables of contents that will make reading a real pleasure!To the Lighthouse (5 May 1927) is a novel by Virginia Woolf. A landmark novel of high modernism, the text, centering on the Ramsay family and their visits to the Isle of Skye in Scotland between 1910 and 1920, skillfully manipulates temporality and psychological exploration. To the Lighthouse follows and extends the tradition of modernist novelists like Marcel Proust and James Joyce, where the plot is secondary to philosophical introspection, and the prose can be winding and hard to follow. The novel includes little dialogue and almost no action; most of it is written as thoughts and observations. The novel recalls the power of childhood emotions and highlights the impermanence of adult relationships. One of the book's several themes is the ubiquity of transience.

A Room of One's Own is an extended essay by Virginia Woolf. First published on 24 October 1929, the essay was based on a series of lectures she delivered at Newnham College and Girton College, two women's colleges at Cambridge University in October 1928. While this extended essay in fact employs a fictional narrator and narrative to explore women both as writers of and characters in fiction, the manuscript for the delivery of the series of lectures, titled "e;Women and Fiction"e;, and hence the essay, are considered non-fiction. The essay is generally seen as a feminist text, and is noted in its argument for both a literal and figural space for women writers within a literary tradition dominated by patriarchy.

Voyage Out

Voyage Out

Author: Virginia Woolf Format: eBook Release Date: 03/06/2017

The Voyage Out is the first novel by Virginia Woolf, published in 1915 by Duckworth; and published in the US in 1920 by Doran. Rachel Vinrace embarks for South America on her father's ship and is launched on a course of self-discovery in a kind of modern mythical voyage. The mismatched jumble of passengers provide Woolf with an opportunity to satirise Edwardian life. The novel introduces Clarissa Dalloway, the central character of Woolf's later novel, Mrs Dalloway. Two of the other characters were modelled after important figures in Woolf's life. St John Hirst is a fictional portrayal of Lytton Strachey and Helen Ambrose is to some extent inspired by Woolf's sister, Vanessa Bell. Rachel's journey from a cloistered life in a London suburb to freedom, challenging intellectual discourse and discovery very likely reflects Woolf's own journey from a repressive household to the intellectual stimulation of the Bloomsbury Group.

Between the Acts is the final novel by Virginia Woolf, published in 1941 shortly after her death. This is a book laden with hidden meaning and allusion. It describes the mounting, performance, and audience of a festival play (hence the title) in a small English village just before the outbreak of the Second World War. Much of it looks forward to the war, with veiled allusions to connection with the continent by flight, swallows representing aircraft, and plunging into darkness. The pageant is a play within a play, representing a rather cynical view of English history. Woolf links together many different threads and ideas - a particularly interesting technique being the use of rhyme words to suggest hidden meanings. Relationships between the characters and aspects of their personalities are explored. The English village bonds throughout the play through their differences and similarities.

To the Lighthouse

To the Lighthouse

Author: Virginia Woolf Format: eBook Release Date: 06/05/2017

To the Lighthouse is a 1927 novel by Virginia Woolf. A landmark of high modernism, the novel centres on the Ramsays and their visits to the Isle of Skye in Scotland between 1910 and 1920. Following and extending the tradition of modernist novelists like Marcel Proust and James Joyce, the plot of To the Lighthouse is secondary to its philosophical introspection. The novel includes little dialogue and almost no action; most of it is written as thoughts and observations. The novel recalls childhood emotions and highlights adult relationships. Among the book's many tropes and themes are those of loss, subjectivity, and the problem of perception. In 1998, the Modern Library named To the Lighthouse No. 15 on its list of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century.In 2005, the novel was chosen byTIME magazine as one of the one hundred best English-language novels from 1923 to present.

Jacob's Room

Jacob's Room

Author: Virginia Woolf Format: eBook Release Date: 19/04/2017

Jacob's Room is the third novel by Virginia Woolf, first published on 26 October 1922. The novel centres, in a very ambiguous way, around the life story of the protagonist Jacob Flanders and is presented almost entirely through the impressions other characters have of Jacob. Thus, although it could be said that the book is primarily a character study and has little in the way of plot or background, the narrative is constructed with a void in place of the central character if, indeed, the novel can be said to have a 'protagonist' in conventional terms. Motifs of emptiness and absence haunt the novel and establish its elegiac feel. Jacob is described to us, but in such indirect terms that it would seem better to view him as an amalgam of the different perceptions of the characters and narrator. He does not exist as a concrete reality, but rather as a collection of memories and sensations. Set in pre-war England, the novel begins in Jacob's childhood and follows him through college at Cambridge and into adulthood. The story is told mainly through the perspectives of the women in Jacob's life, including the repressed upper-middle-class Clara Durrant and the uninhibited young art student Florinda, with whom he has an affair. His time in London forms a large part of the story, though towards the end of the novel he travels to Italy and then Greece.

Nach einer behuteten Kindheit bei ihren "e;kleinen, ziemlich blassen"e; Tanten in Richmond bricht Rachel Vinrace auf dem Schiff ihres Vaters, der Euphrosyne nach Sudamerika auf. Wahrend dieser Fahrt hinaus erfahrt sie zum erstenmal "e;eine Offenbarung ihrer eigenen Personlichkeit, eine Offenbarung von sich selbst als wirklichem, dauerhaftem Ding, verschieden von allem anderen, unverschmelzbar, wie das Meer oder der Wind"e;. In Santa Marina wird Rachel in den privilegierten englischen Zirkel aufgenommen, aber sie ist abgestoen von der sterilen Selbstzufriedenheit der Menschen, denen sie dort begegnet. Selbst die Liebe und das Gluck, die sie mit dem jungen Schriftsteller Terence Hewett findet, konnen sie nicht vollig befriedigen, denn "e;sie wollte viel mehr als die Liebe eines einzigen Menschen"e;.

Zerrissen zwischen "e;akuter Verzweiflung"e; und "e;naturlichem Vergnugen"e; arbeitet Virginia Woolf vier Jahre lang an ihrem vorletzten und umfangreichsten Roman Die Jahre Immer wieder vertraut sie zwischen dem Oktober 1912 und dem April 1936 die Qualen des Schreibens und Umschreibens, aber auch die Augenblicke eines "e;sehr glucklichen freien Gefuhls"e; ihrem Tagebuch an. Und als das "e;wunderlichste"e; ihrer "e;Abenteuer"e; bei seinem Erscheinen im Marz 1937 von der Presse als ein Meisterwerk gefeiert wird und wochenlang an der Spitze der bestgehenden Titel der Herald Tribune steht, notiert sie erleichtert und stolz: "e;Es wurden 25 000 Exemplare verkauft - bei weitem mein Rekord."e;Dieser Erfolg mag nicht zuletzt auf die bei Virginia Woolf uberraschende, auf den ersten Blick fast konventionelle Erzahlweise zuruckzufuhren sein, auf den konkreten chronologischen Handlungsablauf eines Generationsromans zwischen 1880 und den dreiiger Jahren des 20. Jahrhunderts. Das Buch ist, schreibt sie, "e;naturlich verschieden von den andern: hat, glaube ich, mehr wirkliches Leben in sich..."e; Dieses wirkliche Leben verkorpert die Londoner Offiziersfamilie Pargiter, bestehend aus den Eltern, Kindern und Enkeln. Zunachst leben sie noch alle zusammen auf dem alten Familienbesitz Abercorn, die todkranke Mutter und der Oberst mit seinem schmuddligen Geheimnis von der kleinen Matresse, die drei Sohne und die vier Tochter. Feste werden gefeiert und Liebschaften geknupft. Aber die Tage, Wochen und Jahre vergehen und fuhren unabanderlich jeden seinem eigenen individuellen Schicksal entgegen, fuhren zu Ehen, Geburt und Tod, zu Gluck, Geselligkeit und Einsamkeit. Und doch hat Virginia Woolf, "e;die Dichterin des flieenden Erlebens, des Bewutseinsstroms"e;, die Zeit angehalten durch das Immerwiederkehren gleicher Augenblicke. Erinnerungsschube verbinden auseinandergerissene Schicksale uber mehr als funfzig Jahre, verknupfen Gegenwart und Vergangenheit.

"e;Die Wellen"e;, schrieb Stephen Spender, "e;das mir als grotes Werk Virginia Woolfs erscheint, ist einer dieser Romane unserer Zeit, der seit dem Tag, an dem er veroffentlicht wurde - vor beinahe zwanzig Jahren -, eine immer groere Wirkung entfaltet hat."e;In den Wellen sind sechs Personen versammelt. Ihre Stimmen evozieren die Intensitat der Kindheit, die Zuversicht und sinnliche Erfahrung der Jugend, das Losgelostsein des mittleren Alters. Sinneswahrnehmungen, Emotionen, Reflexionen kommen und gehen im Voranschreiten des Erzahlstroms wie die Jahreszeiten, wie die Wellen, die Sonne.Virginia Woolfs farbig instrumentierte Beschworung der Entwicklung von Bernard, Louis, Neville, Rhoda, Jinny und Susan - sechs ganz unterschiedliche Stimmen -, ihre kunstvolle Darstellung der Ebbe und Flut ihrer sinnlichen und intellektuellen Erfahrungen stellt eines der radikalsten Experimente der Literatur des zwanzigsten Jahrhunderts dar.

Fluchtige Freundschaften und Liebeserlebnisse lassen ihn spuren, wie einsam er mit seinem vielleicht nicht mehr zeitgemaen Weltbild ist. Mehr und mehr zieht er sich in sein Zimmer und seinen eigenen geistig-seelischen Bereich zuruck, liest bis spat in die Nacht Autoren der griechischen und romischen Antike und der elisabethanischen Zeit.

Orlando

Author: Virginia Woolf, Sandra M. Gilbert Format: Hardback Release Date: 26/10/2016

A gorgeous clothbound edition of Woolf's fantastical and enchanting novel, designed by the acclaimed Coralie-Bickford Smith. Orlando has always been an outsider... His longing for passion, adventure and fulfilment takes him out of his own time. Chasing a dream through the centuries, he bounds from Elizabethan England and imperial Turkey to the modern world. Will he find happiness with the exotic Russian Princess Sasha? Or is the dashing explorer Shelmerdine the ideal man? And what form will Orlando take on the journey - a nobleman, traveller, writer? Man or... woman? A wry commentary on gender and history, Orlando is also, in Woolf's own words, a light-hearted 'writer's holiday' which delights in ambiguity and capriciousness. This clothbound Penguin edition is edited by Brenda Lyons with an introduction and notes by Sandra M. Gilbert. 'I read this book and believed it was a hallucinogenic, interactive biography of my own life and future' Tilda Swinton

Night and Day

Author: Virginia Woolf Format: eBook Release Date: 21/08/2015

Dodo Collections brings you another classic from Virginia Woolf, 'Night and Day.'Katharine Hilbery is beautiful and privileged, but uncertain of her future. She must choose between becoming engaged to the oddly prosaic poet William Rodney, and her dangerous attraction to the passionate Ralph Denham. As she struggles to decide, the lives of two other women - women's rights activist Mary Datchet and Katharine's mother, Margaret, struggling to weave together the documents, events and memories of her own father's life into a biography - impinge on hers with unexpected and intriguing consequences. Virginia Woolf's delicate second novel is both a love story and a social comedy, yet it also subtly undermines these traditions, questioning a woman's role and the very nature of experience. Virginia Woolf was an English novelist and essayist regarded as one of the foremost modernist literary figures of the twentieth century.During the interwar period, Woolf was a significant figure in London literary society and a member of the Bloomsbury Group. Her most famous works include the novels Mrs Dalloway (1925), To the Lighthouse (1927), and Orlando (1928), and the book-length essay A Room of One's Own (1929) with its famous dictum, "e;a woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction."e;Woolf suffered from severe bouts of mental illness throughout her life, thought to have been the result of what is now termed bipolar disorder, and committed suicide by drowning in 1941 at the age of 59.

Rachel Vinrace embarks for South America on her father's ship and is launched on a course of self-discovery in a kind of modern mythical voyage. The mismatched jumble of passengers provide Woolf with an opportunity to satirize Edwardian life. The novel introduces Clarissa Dalloway, the central character of Woolf's later novel, Mrs. Dalloway. Two of the other characters were modeled after important figures in Woolf's life. St John Hirst is a fictional portrayal of Lytton Strachey and Helen Ambrose is to some extent inspired by Woolf's sister, Vanessa Bell. And Rachel's journey from a cloistered life in a London suburb to freedom, challenging intellectual discourse and discovery very likely reflects Woolf's own journey from a repressive household to the intellectual stimulation of the Bloomsbury Group.

The novel centres, in a very ambiguous way, around the life story of the protagonist Jacob Flanders, and is presented entirely by the impressions other characters have of Jacob (except for those times when we do indeed get Jacob's perspective). Thus, although it could be said that the book is primarily a character study and has little in the way of plot or background, the narrative is constructed as a void in place of the central character, if indeed the novel can be said to have a 'protagonist' in conventional terms.

Stooping, holding their silver lamp above us, long they look and deeply. Long they pause. The wind drives straightly; the flame stoops slightly. Wild beams of moonlight cross both floor and wall, and, meeting, stain the faces bent; the faces pondering; the faces that search the sleepers and seek their hidden joy.

A Room of One's Own and Three Guineas

A Room of One's Own and Three Guineas

Author: Virginia Woolf Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 12/03/2015

'Intellectual freedom depends on material things. Poetry depends on intellectual freedom. And women have always been poor...' In these two classic essays of feminist literature, Woolf argues passionately for women's intellectual freedom and their role in challenging the drive towards fascism and conflict. In A Room of One's Own she explores centuries of limitations placed on women, as well as celebrating the creative achievements of the women writers who overcame these obstacles. In this first history of women's writing, she describes the importance of education, financial independence, and equality of opportunity to creative freedom. Three Guineas was written under the threat of fascism and impending war. A radical articulation of Woolf's pacifist politics, it investigates the causes of gender inequalities and the ways in which women's historic outsider position make them crucial in the prevention of war. Both these works started life as talks to groups of young women, and their engaging wit and informality establish Woolf as one of the twentieth-century's greatest essayists. Their arguments continue to reverberate in feminist discourse to this day. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

Aunque en el curso del dia sucede un hecho tragico: el suicidio de un joven que vuelve de la guerra, lo notable de la historia no es ese episodio, ni los pequenos sucesos y recuerdos que la componen, sino que toda ella este narrada desde la conciencia de los personajes y del analisis de todo lo que pasa por sus mentes antes de actuar.

Her monologue interweaves with the account of the distress, on that same day, of the shell-shocked veteran Septimus Warren Smith, whose trauma and hallucinations end in tragedy, as the links between the two characters unfold. One of Virginia Woolf's most famous novels, Mrs Dalloway is a triumph of experimentation, a cornerstone of Modernism and a subtle examination of love, freedom, mental illness and the female condition in society.

It follows a set of six friends from childhood to middle age as they experience the world around them and explore who they are and what it means to be alive. As the contours of their lives are revealed, a unique novel is slowly unveiled. Enfolded within Woolf's lyrical and mysterious language, the mundane takes on a startling new significance while distant pasts are no less in play than the clamorous sounds and kaleidoscopic sights of the modern city. Yet precisely where the alluringly enigmatic pages of The Waves are leading, and what deeper meanings are held within its undulant chapters and shimmering interludes, are questions that have never ceased to enthral readers and critics alike. In this new edition David Bradshaw considers the spellbinding oddness and originality of The Waves, helping the reader to negotiate a way though this most poetic and haunting of novels.

Orlando

Orlando

Author: Virginia Woolf Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 11/12/2014

'I feel the need of an escapade after these serious poetic experimental books...I want to kick up my heels & be off.' Orlando tells the tale of an extraordinary individual who lives through centuries of English history, first as a man, then as a woman; of his/her encounters with queens, kings, novelists, playwrights, and poets, and of his/her struggle to find fame and immortality not through actions, but through the written word. At its heart are the life and works of Woolf's friend and lover, Vita Sackville-West, and Knole, the historic home of the Sackvilles. But as well as being a love letter to Vita, Orlando mocks the conventions of biography and history, teases the pretensions of contemporary men of letters, and wryly examines sexual double standards. This new edition discusses Woolf's stylistic aims, the biographical parallels, and the work's literary context, and includes the original illustrations.

Virginia Woolf: Essays on the Self

Virginia Woolf: Essays on the Self

Author: Virginia Woolf Format: Hardback Release Date: 01/11/2014

Woolf's fine character studies of several authors, among them Samuel Taylor Coleridge, who 'seems not a man, but a swarm, a cloud, a buzz of words, darting this way and that, clustering, quivering and hanging suspended'. He is, Woolf adds,so complex, so eccentric, that we 'become dazed in the labyrinth of what we call Coleridge'. He was incapable of adopting requisite social modes, of suppressing his obsessive urge to talk, of pandering to the expectations of others. Woolf tries to capture a 'clear picture' of Coleridge but this metaphor is skewed and what she really reveals is a voice - mad and beautiful - never to be heard again:

A Room of One's Own

A Room of One's Own

Author: Virginia Woolf Format: Hardback Release Date: 22/10/2014

A Room of One's Own is Virginia Woolf's most powerful feminist essay, justifying the need for women to possess intellectual freedom and financial independence. Based on a lecture given at Girton College, Cambridge, the essay is one of the great feminist polemics, ranging in its themes from Jane Austen and Carlotte Bronte to the silent fate of Shakespeare's gifted (imaginary) sister and the effects of poverty and sexual constraint on female creativity. Virginia Woolf (1882-1941) is regarded as a major twentieth-century author and essayist, a key figure in literary history as a feminist and modernist, and the centre of 'The Bloomsbury Group'. Between 1925 and 1931 Woolf produced what are now regarded as her finest masterpieces, from Mrs Dalloway (1925) to the poetic and highly experimental novel The Waves (1931). She also maintained an astonishing output of literary criticism, short fiction, journalism and biography, including the playfully subversive Orlando (1928) and A Room of One's Own (1929). If you enjoyed A Room of One's Own, you might like Woolf's Orlando, also available in Penguin Modern Classics.

Jacob's Room

Jacob's Room

Author: Virginia Woolf Format: CD-Audio Release Date: 03/02/2014

Virginia Woolf's third novel, Jacob's Room, marked a radical, new departure in her style: the most experimental of all her novels, it enacts the 'smashing and crashing' of form that Woolf called for in the modernist movement. Set in pre-war England, the novel tells the life story of Jacob Flanders. Through the collective memories of those who knew him, we follow his childhood, through to his time at Cambridge, and then into adulthood. Jacob's Room is evocative and poignant in regards to human relationships, and Woolf describes scenes and characters with a beauty unsurpassed. She combines language in a majestic manner as she meditates on the multiple people we encounter who vanish into the inexorable flux of life and provides a kind of elegiac stream found in her best-known work such as To the Lighthouse.

Set against the backdrop of a seaside dreamscape, Virginia Woolfs experimental novel, The Waves, follows the lives of six childrenBernard, Susan, Rhoda, Neville, Jinny and Louisfrom birth to death as they fleetingly unite around the elusive figure of a seventh child, Percival. Largely abandoning traditional plot structure, The Waves recounts the thoughts, feelings and perceptions of all six characters in a series of interwoven soliloquies that simultaneously span the course of their lives and the course of a single day. Many of the characters depicted in Woolfs The Waves are said to be inspired by the conversations and correspondences she shared with her peers; friends and writing rivals such as T. S. Eliot, E. M. Forster, and Lytton Strachey.HarperPerennialClassics brings great works of literature to life in digital format, upholding the highest standards in ebook production and celebrating reading in all its forms.

Based on a series of lectures delivered by author Virginia Woolf at womens colleges, A Room of Ones Own is an essay that calls out for a broader representation of women writers in the literary world of Woolfs time. Heralded as a call to action for women writers to carve out space both mentally and physically for their artistic endeavours, Woolfs essay has become a cornerstone for modern feminism.Touching on subjects such as the importance of education, the history of female writers, and the taboo of lesbianism, Woolf constructs the unhealthy picture of the current reception for womens work in literature, and passionately argues for the importance of the female voice.

Six children - Bernard, Susan, Rhoda, Neville, Jinny and Louis - meet in a garden close to the sea, their voices sounding over the constant echo of the waves that roll back and forth from the shore. The book follows them as they develop from childhood to maturity and follow different passions and ambitions; their voices are interspersed with interludes from the timeless and unifying chorus of nature.

Este ebook presenta "e;Una casa encantada"e;, con un sumario dinamico y detallado. El unico volumen de cuentos debido a Virginia Woolf que vio la luz publica durante su vida. Virginia Woolf siempre tuvo la costumbre de escribir relatos, de vez en cuando. Cuando se le ocurria la idea de un relato, solia esbozarlo de forma muy rudimentaria y guardarlo en un cajon. Luego, si un editor le pedia un cuento, y Virginia Woolf tenia el humor propicio para ello, sacaba el esbozo del cajon y lo volvia a escribir, en ocasiones muchas veces. Cuando Virginia Woolf estimaba, lo cual le ocurria a menudo si se hallaba en trance de escribir una novela, que necesitaba dar descanso a su mente por el medio de escribir otra cosa durante un tiempo, escribia un ensayo critico, o bien desarrollaba uno de sus esbozos de cuento. Adeline Virginia Woolf (1882 - 1941) fue una novelista, ensayista, escritora de cartas, editora, feminista y escritora de cuentos britanica, considerada como una de las mas destacadas figuras del modernismo literario del siglo XX.

To The Lighthouse

To The Lighthouse

Author: Virginia Woolf Format: eBook Release Date: 14/10/2013

Adeline Virginia Woolf ( 1882 - 28th March 1941) is one of Britain's leading literary talents and a pioneer of modernist writing especially 'stream of consciousness' which provides the reader with the flow of thoughts from the naked inner voice without any filter, order or arrangement. She overcame sexual abuse from her brothers, the death of her mother and then sister in her childhood but it was the death of her father as a young adult that institutionalised her. These dark emotional episodes were to reappear at different times throughout her life but did not prevent her prolific output of some of the most poignant and poetic prose ever written. This is undoubtedly evident in To the Lighthouse a vivid narrative of the Ramsey family and their holiday to the Scottish Isle of Skye where they dream of reaching the remote, inaccessible but ever present lighthouse that stands the same in an ever changing world. The novel minutely details a portrait of each family member that reveals truths on childhood, parenthood and marriage together with the meaning of time and memory.

These dark emotional episodes were to reappear at different times throughout her life but did not prevent her prolific output of some of the most poignant and poetic prose ever written. Mrs Dalloway is often thought of as one of Woolf's most brilliant novels and was the basis of the award winning film The Hours. It takes place on a June day in post WWI London where wealthy socialite Clarissa Dalloway is preoccupied with the finishing touches to her party. She considers those that will be attending her party that evening, past loves, people who have touched her life, a re-evaluation of her practical marriage and her hesitancy in growing old. These flashbacks, reminiscences and memories conjure up a vivid and insightful portrait that make this a riveting read and a classic work by a brilliant author at the top of her game.

HarperCollins is proud to present its incredible range of best-loved, essential classics. Every summer, the Ramsays visit their summer home on the beautiful Isle of Skye, surrounded by the excitement and chatter of family and friends, mirroring Virginia Woolf's own joyful holidays of her youth.

A landmark of high modernism and the most autobiographical of Virginia Woolf's novels, To the Lighthouse explores themes of loss, class structure and the question of perception, in a hauntingly beautiful memorial to the lost but not forgotten. Chosen by TIME magazine as one of the 100 best English-language novels from 1923 to the present.

Mrs Dalloway

Mrs Dalloway

Author: Virginia Woolf Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 12/09/2013

HarperCollins is proud to present its incredible range of best-loved, essential classics. Clarissa Dalloway is a woman of high-society - vivacious, hospitable and sociable on the surface, yet underneath troubled and dissatisfied with her life in post-war Britain. This disillusionment is an emotion that bubbles under the surface of all of Woolf's characters in Mrs Dalloway. Centred around one day in June where Clarissa is preparing for and holding a party, her interior monologue mingles with those of the other central characters in a stream of consciousness, entwining, yet never actually overriding the pervading sense of isolation that haunts each person. One of Virginia Woolf's most accomplished novels, Mrs Dalloway is widely regarded as one of the most revolutionary works of the 20th century in its style and the themes that it tackles. The sense that Clarissa has married the wrong person, her past love for another female friend and the death of an intended party guest all serve to amplify this stultifying existence.

To the Lighthouse was published in 1927 by Hogarth Press two years after Mrs Dalloway and a year before Orlando. The plot - not the most important aspect at all - concerns a family's decision to visit a lighthouse on two separate occasions, the first, unsuccessfully, when the children are young and the second, successfully, when the children are ten years older but the mother has died. The essential parts of the plot, the death of the mother and the demise of a son, are merely referred to (the first in brackets!), but are central to the tone and feel of the second part in which the initially maligned father proves his worth in the eyes of his children.

Voyage Out

Voyage Out

Author: Virginia Woolf Format: eBook Release Date: 06/09/2013

Published in 1915, but written and revised in stages from 1912, The Voyage Out was Woolf's first novel. The plot follows Rachel Vinrace on her voyage aboard her father's ship to South America. During the voyage, Rachel meets a number of well-constructed characters that include Clarissa Dalloway (later given her own novel), and others that have been shown to be based on Llyton Strachey and Vanessa Bell. Outwardly, this arrangement allows Woolf to run through a satire of Edwardian life, but deeper down the novel shows evidence of autobiographical elements. The father's ship, for example, might represent Woolf's perception of a life as set out by her own father, dead perhaps six or seven years prior to her writing the novel. Also the plot features a recollection of a mother's death which the principal character is unable to bring herself to remember and certain dream sequences have been highlighted for their insight into Woolf's own mental predisposition.

Waves

Waves

Author: Virginia Woolf Format: eBook Release Date: 06/09/2013

The Waves, published by Hogarth Press in 1931, might be said to be plotless in essence whilst also serving as a counterpoint to her earlier novel Jacob's Room. The structure, because that's a more helpful notion, is built around the soliloquys of six characters while a seventh, much like Jacob but this time kept silent, hovers in the background. Interspersed between these six voices are attendant naturalistic descriptions of waves breaking on a shore at different points of the day from dawn to dusk; another instance of Woolf's childhood memories surfacing. Through the different characters, and using the seventh, Perceval, as a collective, but flawed, icon, Woolf examines notions of the self and the collective through differing viewpoint. Some see Woolf's peers in a selection of the characters including Llyton Strachey, E. M. Forster and T. S. Eliot, but such identifications are less important than what she has to say using these points of view as distinct mouthpieces.

Years

Years

Author: Virginia Woolf Format: eBook Release Date: 06/09/2013

Published in 1937 by Hogarth Press, The Years was the last novel released during Woolf's lifetime. It was also the longest in development, having gone through a steady flow of refinements since it was first conceived as a novel-essay in 1931. Much like the previous novel, The Waves, this is as much or more about structure than it is about plot, following the progress or otherwise of the Pargiter family from 1880 up to 'the present'. Again like The Waves, the stages of narrative presented as brief snapshots are interspersed with poetic vistas of British weather. That the dates coincide with Woolf's life are not coincidence, writing to Hugh Walpole in 1932 she declared that, "e; only autobiography is literature - novels are what we peel off "e; This can be taken in two ways: that a writer is obliged to get through the novels before coming to the more worthy autobiography; or that what's presented as a novel is no more than the thin outer skin covering up the autobiography underneath.

Common Reader

Common Reader

Author: Virginia Woolf Format: eBook Release Date: 05/09/2013

With the first volume published in 1925 and the second in 1932, The Common Reader brings together a collection of Woolf's critical essays and articles, in total forty entries covering historical and contemporary authors and themes. By no means is this a complete collection of her critical work - she was reviewing in established magazines well before she'd published any of her own work - but it is representative of her views at the height of her abilities. It's also a reflection of Woolf's working life. By all accounts, she wrote for publication only at certain times of the day - usually in the morning - but she also put a considerable amount of time aside to read, typically amassing a pile of intended volumes or immersing herself in a single author for a few days at a time. Unfortunately, the use of the word 'common' in the title served to open her up for subsequent criticism because by and large these are subjects not especially appealing to the common man or woman.

Night and Day

Night and Day

Author: Virginia Woolf Format: eBook Release Date: 04/09/2013

Night and Day, Woolf's second novel, was published in 1919 and for the most part is conventional, dealing with current issues including women's suffrage, marriage and not-marriage through the lives of a few principal characters. Katherine Hilbery represents the autobiographical element, the grand-daughter of a famous poet and with a mother who, combined with the past, exercises a significant impression on her life. Another of the principal characters, Mary Datchett, chooses to work even though, with a private income, she had no need to. In Mary, there are elements of the emancipated female found in A Room of One's Own, a woman, with a secure financial footing, stepping out with her own agenda. Yet Mary also shows sign of that 'Angel in the Room', mode in that she serves as a sounding board for troubles hoisted upon her by the other characters. Though she loves Ralph Denham, the third of the main characters, she rejects him finally because she sees through his insincerity.

Orlando

Orlando

Author: Virginia Woolf Format: eBook Release Date: 04/09/2013

Published by Hogarth Press in 1928, Orlando is at once an oddity, an indulgence, but also a slice of genius. The novel - because despite masquerading as a biography, it is a work of narrative fiction - tells the unlikely, impossible story of Orlando through his years as a male member of the Elizabethan Court, an affair with a Russian Princess, a subdued period of contemplation during the reign of James 1, his time as an ambassador in Constantinople and the sudden transformation into a woman. Not content with such a plot twist Woolf allows her character to live on through the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, using the journey to trace the female place in society while allowing Orlando the freedom to seduce, be seduced and to love in equal measure. After 80,000 words, Woolf leaves her heroine in the England of 1928 having completed a poem, The Oak Tree, that had been started some four centuries earlier.

Room of One's Own

Room of One's Own

Author: Virginia Woolf Format: eBook Release Date: 03/09/2013

Originally published in October 1929, A Room of One's Own was based on a series of lectures Woolf gave at Girton and Newnham Colleges in Cambridge during the previous year. The overriding theme concerns the conditions necessary to allow a woman to write for a living in a society (her own) that is a patriarchy. The requirements, Woolf suggests, are that she have a room of her own in which to work - hence the title - and a yearly income, ideally a trust from which to draw. Of course, these are merely the pegs onto which Woolf hangs a treatise that is an essential feminist text. At times the writing is disjointed and in some places extravagant, but throughout we see one of the great novelists turn her ire upon a society that excludes women physically and mentally from what they every right to enjoy in life. Whether those exclusions are educational - Woolf begins with an anecdote about being barred from a college library - social or sexual, the writing is, in contemporary terms, unflinching.

Between the Acts

Between the Acts

Author: Virginia Woolf Format: eBook Release Date: 03/09/2013

Published posthumously by Hogarth Press shortly after Wooolf's suicide, Between The Acts was her last novel and, strangely perhaps, closest to the first. It takes place over a day before, during and after the staging of an amateur pageant in an English village just before the onset of the Second World War. Unlike her major fictional works, Between The Acts is dialogue driven, rather than introspective, and there is also an omniscient sense to it, as though Woolf is directing the characters much as they would later be directed in the pageant. The play itself takes place in three scenes disconnected by years of history leading from a Shakespearian romance, onto a Restoration comedy and finally a triumphant Victorian parade in a notional Hyde Park.

Flush

Flush

Author: Virginia Woolf Format: eBook Release Date: 03/09/2013

Published in 1933 by Hogarth, Flush is an experiment in biography, using the medium of a pet dog, the eponymous character, to examine the imagined life of the poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning. While Woolf's approach is essentially fictional, she used existing correspondence between Browning and her husband, combined with poems about Flush the dog to create non-fictional threads. On these factual underpinnings, Woolf then layered themes that she wished to explore. Connections to A Room of One's Own come across in the way Woolf deals with Browning's life as a woman writer and intellectual, existing in a patriarchal city environment. In choosing such an approach, Woolf certainly betrays the autobiographical elements in the text, given her own status and also allows her to cover the pressures imposed by her private ailments.

Jacob's Room

Jacob's Room

Author: Virginia Woolf Format: eBook Release Date: 03/09/2013

Published in 1922, the first of Woolf's novels to come out of Hogarth Press, Jacob's Room, also represents her first truly modernist work. If there is a plot to speak of, it is more a story arc, tracing the life of Jacob Flanders from his first appearance trying to climb a rock on a Cornish Beach, to his last reference, a report of his death during the war. Though Woolf does choose at times to give Jacob his own point of view - starting on the beach with a change of tense - for the most part he is dealt with second or third hand, through the views and impressions of other characters. That the novel represents two firsts - for Hogarth and for Woolf's Modernism - is no surprise; it's unlikely that any of the major publishing houses would have gone with such an experimental shift from her previous two novels. The novel was, in the opinion of T.S. Eliot -more than a mere literary acquaintance - without compromise, by which he meant that it didn't seek to conform to the expectations of the commercial market.

Monday or Tuesday

Monday or Tuesday

Author: Virginia Woolf Format: eBook Release Date: 03/09/2013

Published by Hogarth in 1921, Monday or Tuesday is a collection of eight short stories. The set includes the title piece, Monday or Tuesday, which, along with Blue and Green, and, to a lesser extent, A Haunted House, suggest themselves as literary pastiches, closer to impressionism than conventional, plot-driven episodes. Even the longer stories, such as A Society and An Unwritten Novel are insular, relying on stream of consciousness methods to create an approach to expressing a character's feeling towards the exterior world. Where ordinarily, a short story collection will provide a suitable introduction to a novelist, this set serves to push the reader straight into the depths of Woolf's mind set and in doing so gives a strong impression of the modernist bent as it existed in the early twenties. By the time of publication, Woolf would most likely have read Joyce's Ulysses in manuscript form and she would also have been in close contact with T.S. Eliot.

Mrs Dalloway

Mrs Dalloway

Author: Virginia Woolf Format: eBook Release Date: 03/09/2013

Considered by many critics to be Woolf's masterpiece, Mrs Dalloway was published by Hogarth Press in 1925. The plot follows a single day in the lead up to a party being hosted by Clarissa Dalloway, interspersed with flashbacks and switches in point of view to other principal characters so as to provide a background of their lives and comment on the social structure of the 1920s. In addition to Mrs Dalloway, the other focus is Septimus Warren Smith, a veteran of the war who suffers from 'shell shock'. Though the two never meet, the hinge of the day's activities is Smith's suicide and the subsequent impact it has on Mrs Dalloway's thoughts - she thinks him quite admirable.

Night And Day

Night And Day

Author: Virginia Woolf Format: eBook Release Date: 01/09/2013

Virginia Woolf's Night and Day is populated by four major characters: Katharine Hilbery, Mary Datchet, Ralph Denham, and William Rodney. Through delineating their romantic adventures, the novel explores various issues related to love, marriage, self-discovery, self-assertion and happiness. Yet, like most of Woolf's works, it also examines feminist questions such as women's suffrage and the usefulness of marriage and work for women. Katherine is first engaged to William, an unsuccessful writer and a clumsy suitor. Being eventually jilted by her, he becomes interested in her cousin Cassandra who accepts his proposal. Meanwhile, Katherine agrees to marry Ralph Denham who has been haunting her since he first knew her. The fourth main character of the story, Mary, is a very idealistic young woman who works for an organization that defends women's right to vote. She plays the role of a confidante mainly for Ralph and Katherine who often come to tell her about their problems and misunderstandings. Although she falls in love with Ralph early in the novel, she rejects his proposal when she learns that he is more interested in Katherine. Mary is the only principal character who remains single till the end of the story.

The resultant work contained the seeds of all that would blossom in her later work: the innovative narrative style, the focus on feminine consciousness, sexuality and death.

This carefully crafted ebook: "e;Jacob's Room (The Original 1922 Hogarth Press Edition)"e; is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. The novel centres, in a very ambiguous way, around the life story of the protagonist Jacob Flanders, and is presented entirely by the impressions other characters have of Jacob (except for those times when we do indeed get Jacob's perspective). Thus, although it could be said that the book is primarily a character study and has little in the way of plot or background, the narrative is constructed as a void in place of the central character, if indeed the novel can be said to have a 'protagonist' in conventional terms.

During the interwar period, Woolf was a significant figure in London literary society and a central figure in the influential Bloomsbury Group of intellectuals. Her most famous works include the novels Mrs Dalloway (1925), To the Lighthouse (1927) and Orlando (1928), and the book-length essay A Room of One's Own (1929), with its famous dictum, "e;A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction."e;

Woolf writes, "e;Considering how common illness is, how tremendous the spiritual change that it brings, how astonishing, when the lights of health go down, the undiscovered countries that are then disclosed, what wastes and deserts of the soul a slight attack of influenza brings to light...it becomes strange indeed that illness has not taken its place with love, battle, and jealousy among the prime themes of literature."e; Adeline Virginia Woolf (25 January 1882 - 28 March 1941) was an English writer, and one of the foremost modernists of the twentieth century.

To the Lighthouse

Author: Virginia Woolf Format: eBook Release Date: 31/07/2013

A landmark novel of high modernism, the text, centering on the Ramsay family and their visits to the Isle of Skye in Scotland between 1910 and 1920, skillfully manipulates temporality and psychological exploration. To the Lighthouse follows and extends the tradition of modernist novelists like Marcel Proust and James Joyce, where the plot is secondary to philosophical introspection, and the prose can be winding and hard to follow. The novel includes little dialogue and almost no action; most of it is written as thoughts and observations. The novel recalls the power of childhood emotions and highlights the impermanence of adult relationships. One of the book's several themes is the ubiquity of transience.

Virginia Woolf siempre tuvo la costumbre de escribir relatos, de vez en cuando. Cuando se le ocurria la idea de un relato, solia esbozarlo de forma muy rudimentaria y guardarlo en un cajon. Luego, si un editor le pedia un cuento, y Virginia Woolf tenia el humor propicio para ello, sacaba el esbozo del cajon y lo volvia a escribir, en ocasiones muchas veces. Cuando Virginia Woolf estimaba, lo cual le ocurria a menudo si se hallaba en trance de escribir una novela, que necesitaba dar descanso a su mente por el medio de escribir otra cosa durante un tiempo, escribia un ensayo critico, o bien desarrollaba uno de sus esbozos de cuento. Adeline Virginia Woolf (1882 - 1941) fue una novelista, ensayista, escritora de cartas, editora, feminista y escritora de cuentos britanica, considerada como una de las mas destacadas figuras del modernismo literario del siglo XX.

Clarissa Dalloway is civilised--without the ostentation of a socialite, but with enough distinction to attract them to her parties. She finds excess offensive, but surrounds herself with the highest quality and has an abhorrence for anything ugly or awkward. Mrs. Dalloway is as much a character study as it is a commentary on the ills and benefits society gleans from class. Through Virginia Woolf, we spend a day with Clarissa as she interacts with servants, her children, her husband, and even an ex-lover. As she plans and executes one of her celebrated parties, she reveals inner machinations incongruous with her class-defined behaviors, that ultimately enable her to transcend them.

Virginia Woolf - The Short Stories

Virginia Woolf - The Short Stories

Author: Virginia Woolf Format: eBook Release Date: 03/06/2013

The Short Stories Of Virginia Woolf. The short story is often viewed as an inferior relation to the Novel. But it is an art in itself. To take a story and distil its essence into fewer pages while keeping character and plot rounded and driven is not an easy task. Many try and many fail. In this series we look at short stories from many of our most accomplished writers. Miniature masterpieces with a lot to say. In this volume we examine some of the short stories of Virginia Woolf. Adeline Virginia Woolf was born in 1882 and was to become a founder of modernist writing. Her background is filled with elements of tragedy that she somehow overcame to become a revered writer. Her mother died when she was 13, her half sister Stella two years later and with it her first of several nervous breakdowns. She began writing professionally at age 20 but her father's death two years later brought a complete mental collapse and she was briefly institutionalised. Three of her half brothers had sexually abused her so further darkness was added to her life. But out of this came great innovations in writing; she was a pioneer of "e;stream of consciousness"e;. Whilst the dark periods continued to interrupt her emotional state her rate of work never ceased. Until on 28 March 1941, Woolf put on her overcoat, filled its pockets with stones, and walked into the River Ouse and drowned herself leaving behind a note which read in part "e;Dearest, I feel certain that I am going mad again. I feel we can't go through another of those terrible times. And I shan't recover this time. I begin to hear voices, and I can't concentrate. So I am doing what seems the best thing to do"e;. Many of these stories are also available as an audiobook from our sister company Word Of Mouth.

Jacob's Room

Jacob's Room

Author: Virginia Woolf Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 09/05/2013

HarperCollins is proud to present its incredible range of best-loved, essential classics. JACOB'S ROOM, Virginia Woolf's third novel, marks her first foray into Modernist experimentation. The narrative traces Jacob's childhood in Cornwall and his education at Cambridge, culminating in an evocative portrait of his adult life in London and abroad. Jacob is romantically torn between the artistic Florinda, the upper-middle-class Clara Durrant and the beautiful, but married, Sandra Wentworth Williams. This tissue of romance, though, is torn apart by the cataclysmic events of the First World War. Woolf poignantly depicts the life of Jacob through a sequence of alternating perspectives that combine letters, fragments of dialogue and the ephemeral impressions of those nearest to him. Jacob's voice becomes the absent centre of one of Modernism's first great novels.

This carefully crafted ebook: "e;Mrs. Dalloway"e; is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Mrs Dalloway, Virginia Woolf's fourth novel, offers the reader an impression of a single June day in London in 1923. Clarissa Dalloway, the wife of a Conservative member of parliament, is preparing to give an evening party, while the shell-shocked Septimus Warren Smith hears the birds in Regent's Park chattering in Greek. There seems to be nothing, except perhaps London, to link Clarissa and Septimus. She is middle-aged and prosperous, with a sheltered happy life behind her; Smith is young, poor, and driven to hatred of himself and the whole human race. Yet both share a terror of existence, and sense the pull of death. The world of Mrs Dalloway is evoked in Woolf's famous stream of consciousness style, in a lyrical and haunting language which has made this, from its publication in 1925, one of her most popular novels.

Waves

Waves

Author: Virginia Woolf Format: eBook Release Date: 01/05/2013

This carefully crafted ebook: "e;The Waves"e; is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. The book is Virginia Woolf's most experimental novel, first published in 1931. It consists of soliloquies spoken by the book's six characters: Bernard, Susan, Rhoda, Neville, Jinny, and Louis. Also important is Percival, the seventh character, though readers never hear him speak through his own voice. The monologues that span the characters' lives are broken up by nine brief third-person interludes detailing a coastal scene at varying stages in a day from sunrise to sunset. As the six characters or "e;voices"e; alternately speak, Woolf explores concepts of individuality, self, and community. Each character is distinct, yet together they compose a gestalt about a silent central consciousness. Bernard is a story-teller, always seeking some elusive and apt phrase Louis is an outsider, who seeks acceptance and success; Neville desires love, seeking out a series of men, each of whom become the present object of his transcendent love; Jinny is a socialite, whose Weltanschauung corresponds to her physical, corporeal beauty; Susan flees the city, in preference for the countryside, where she grapples with the thrills and doubts of motherhood; and Rhoda is riddled with self-doubt and anxiety, always rejecting and indicting human compromise, always seeking out solitude. Percival is the god-like but morally flawed hero of the other six, who dies midway through the novel on an imperialist quest in British-dominated colonial India. Although Percival never speaks through a monologue of his own in The Waves, readers learn about him in detail as the other six characters repeatedly describe and reflect on him throughout the book. The novel follows its six narrators from childhood through adulthood.

Between the Acts

Author: Virginia Woolf Format: eBook Release Date: 01/05/2013

This carefully crafted ebook: "e;Between the Acts"e; is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Between the Acts is the final novel by Virginia Woolf, published in 1941 shortly after her suicide. This is a book laden with hidden meaning and allusion. It describes the mounting, performance, and audience of a festival play (hence the title) in a small English village just before the outbreak of the Second World War. Much of it looks forward to the war, with veiled allusions to connection with the continent by flight, swallows representing aircraft, and plunging into darkness. The pageant is a play within a play, representing a rather cynical view of English history. Woolf links together many different threads and ideas - a particularly interesting technique being the use of rhyme words to suggest hidden meanings. Relationships between the characters and aspects of their personalities are explored. The English village bonds throughout the play through their differences and similarities.

This carefully crafted ebook: "e;Orlando: A Biography"e; is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Orlando: A Biography, is a fictional work published in 1928. Virginia Woolf was an English author, essayist, publisher, and writer of short stories, regarded as one of the foremost modernist literary figures of the twentieth century. During the interwar period. The novel is semi-biographical based and dedicated to Woolf's lover Vita Sackville-West. Well regarded for it's impact on gender studies and the stylized approach in which it portrays women. The novel was conceived as a "e;writer's holiday"e; from more structured and demanding novels. Woolf allowed neither time nor gender to constrain her writing. The protagonist, Orlando, ages only thirty-six years and changes gender from man to woman. This pseudo-biography satirizes more traditional Victorian biographies that emphasize facts and truth in their subjects' lives. Although Orlando may have been intended to be a satire or a holiday, it touches on important issues of gender, self-knowledge, and truth with Virginia Woolf's signature poetic style.

We see them each endure and remember heart-break, loss, radical change and stifling conformity, marriage and regret. Written in 1937, this was the most popular of Virginia Woolf's novels during her lifetime, and is a powerful indictment of 'Victorianism' and its values. Although spanning fifty years, the novel is not epic in scope, focusing instead on the small private details of the characters' lives.

The essay is generally seen as a feminist text, and is noted in its argument for both a literal and figural space for women writers within a literary tradition dominated by patriarchy. Virginia Woolf was one of the greatest authors of the twentieth century, transformed the art of fiction. The author of numerous novels and short stories, she was also an acknowledged master of the essay form, and an admired literary critic.

This unusual biography traces the life of Flush from his carefree existence in the country, to his adoption by Ms. Browning and his travails in London, leading up to his final days in a bucolic Italy.

Author: Virginia Woolf Format: eBook Release Date: 01/05/2013

This carefully crafted ebook: "e;Three Guineas (a book-length essay)"e; is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. This book-length essay by Virginia Woolf, first published in June 1938, is a passionate polemic which draws a startling comparison between the tyrannous hypocrisy of the Victorian patriarchal system and the evils of fascism. Virginia Woolf makes the connection between war and the economy and a woman's role (or lack there of) in both. She restates the idea from a Room of One's Own that the most important thing a woman has gained is the ability to participate in a profession. When she is making her own money, rather than relying on the genorosity of her father or husband, she has an opportunity to be truly independant.
