Biographical Information

Virginia Woolf, born in 1882, is one of the most renowned English woman writers of the 20th century. A member of the trailblazing Bloomsbury Group, she was known for her stream of consciousness prose style, and revolutionary thoughts on domesticity, traditional womanhood, and gender. In addition to her husband Leonard Woolf, other members of the Bloomsbury Group included Woolf's sister Vanessa Bell nee Stephens and her husband Clive Bell. Woolf died by suicide in 1941, leaving behind an abundance of novels and essays, many of which are now considered classics.
