Description:

Woolf's essays explore the nooks and crannies of English letters, history and literature, often winkling out fascinating details about her themes or the lives of her subjects. This volume includes pieces on Beau Brummel, an evening party at Fanny Burney's home, George Gissing and a couple of parsons. Or maybe it's finally time to learn "How one should read a book".

Author Bio for Woolf, Virginia

Author Image

Adeline Virginia Woolf (née Stephen; 25 January 1882 – 28 March 1941) was an English writer and one of the foremost modernists of the twentieth century.

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, "A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction."

Woolf suffered from severe bouts of mental illness throughout her life, thought to have been what is now termed bipolar disorder, and committed suicide by drowning in 1941 at the age of 59.--Wikipedia.
