Works

Virgina Woolf (1882-1941) was an English writer, considered one of the most important modernist 20th-century authors and a pioneer in the use of stream of consciousness as a narrative device. She wrote extensively on wide-ranging historical, political, feminist, and artistic issues.

International Women's Day

The eyes of others our prisons;their thoughts our cages.

Feminism involves so much more than gender equality. And it involves so much more than gender.

The problem with gender is that it prescribes how we should be rather than recognizing how we are.

When I write I do not have the impression of looking inside me, I look inside a memory.

The oppressor would not be sostrong if he did not have accomplicesamong the oppressed.

Some books by Virginia Woolf

However, her work wasn't embraced or widely anthologized until nearly 50 years after her novels were published.Here are 5 reasons why Woolf should be one of your feminist icons:

  • She was chiefly interested in and wrote about the inner lives of women.
  • She lived in a time when she was granted few rights, but turned the setback into a strength.
  • She was progressive in her feminism, and even made the connection between a patriarchal society and militarism.
  • She believed deeply in the power of the individual.
  • She saw sexuality and gender as fluid.

Virginia Woolf is now accepted as an extremely important literary figure and an early feminist.

Stravinsky and Proust

Family summers in coastal Cornwall also shaped Woolf indelibly, exposing her to the ocean as a source of literary inspiration and creating memories she would fictionalize for her acclaimed novel, To the Lighthouse.

Woolf's work was influenced by prominent writers and artists of the time such as Marcel Proust, Igor Stravinsky, and the Post-Impressionists.

Born into a wealthy English household in 1882, author Virginia Woolf was raised by free-thinking parents. She began writing as a young girl and, encouraged by her father, began writing professionally in 1900. Perhaps best known as the author of Mrs. Dalloway (1925) and To the Lighthouse (1927), she was also a prolific writer of essays, diaries, letters, and biographies. She and her husband, Leonard Woolf, bought a used printing press and established their own publishing house, Hogarth Press, going on to publish some of their own work as well as that of Sigmund Freud, Katharine Mansfield, and T.S. Eliot. Throughout her career, Woolf spoke regularly at colleges and universities and by her mid-forties, she had established herself as an intellectual, an innovative and influential writer, and a pioneering feminist.

Virginia Woolf (1882–1941) is recognized as one of the most innovative writers of the 20th century.

In her personal life, she suffered bouts of deep depression. She took her own life in 1941, at the age of 59, after her house was destroyed in The Blitz (WW2 bombing of London).
