Meet the Author

Adeline Virginia Woolf (25 January 1882 – 28 March 1941) was an English author, essayist, publisher, and writer of short stories, regarded as one of the foremost modernist literary figures of the twentieth century. During the interwar period, Woolf was a significant figure in London literary society and a member of the Bloomsbury Group. 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 went on to publish novels and essays as a public intellectual to both critical and popular success. Much of her work was self-published through the Hogarth Press. She has been hailed as one of the greatest novelists of the twentieth century and one of the foremost modernists. Sadly, in 1941 she took her own life.
