Virginia Woolf Collection
Virginia Woolf was one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century and a founder of the modernist movement. A great stylist, Woolf experimented with plot and structure in novels which dealt exuberantly with her great themes: the balance of power between the sexes, England's social hierarchy, and the consequences of war. In Mrs Dalloway, she carves a masterpiece out of the banal life of Clarissa Dalloway who is organizing a party. Orlando features a 300-year old nobleman who never ages but can change sex. To the Lighthouse explores the passing of time and the quest for creativity, while A Room of One's Own is regarded as a great feminist work. Virginia Woolf lived an extraordinary life at an extraordinary time and this compendium of classic writing shows Woolf at her enjoyable best.
