Freedom and enfranchisement. Something anarchical which pushes at boundaries. The sweetness of leisure time.
Each of these rich avenues of meaning are bound up in the word 'liberty' and are explored here in varied pieces by one of the most ground-breaking writers of the last century. Whether via the passionate feminist polemic of A Room of One's Own, the experimental narrative of her fiction, or a whimsical account of roaming the streets of London, Virginia Woolf's writing will set your thoughts at liberty. Selected from the books A Room of One's Own, The Waves and Street Haunting and Other Essays by Virginia Woolf VINTAGE MINIS: GREAT MINDS.
BIG IDEAS. LITTLE BOOKS. Also in the Vintage Minis series: Calm by Tim Parks Summer by Laurie Lee Eating by Nigella Lawson Race by Toni Morrison.
In 1912 Virginia married Leonard Woolf, a writer and social reformer. Three years later, her first novel The Voyage Out was published, followed by Night and Day (1919) and Jacob's Room (1922). Between 1925 and 1931 Virginia Woolf produced what are now regarded as her finest masterpieces, from Mrs Dalloway (1925) to The Waves (1931). She also maintained an astonishing output of literary criticism, short fiction, journalism and biography. On 28 March 1941, a few months before the publication of her final novel, Between the Acts, Virginia Woolf committed suicide.
