The subject of this extraordinary novel is the daily life of an English family in the Hebrides. “Radiant as [To the Lighthouse] is in its beauty, there could never be a mistake about it: here is a novel to the last degree severe and uncompromising. I think that beyond being about the very nature of reality, it is itself a vision of reality.”-Eudora Welty, from her Introduction.

Hermione Lee sees Virginia Woolf afresh, in her historical setting and as a vital figure for our times. Her book moves freely between a richly detailed life-story and new attempts to understand crucial questions - the impact of her childhood, the cause and nature of her madness and suicide, the truth about her marriage, her feelings for women, her prejudies and obsessions. This is a vivid, close-up portrait, returning to primary sources, and showing Woolf as occupying a distinct, even uneasy position with 'Bloomsbury'. It is a writer's life, illustrating how the concerns of her work arise and develop, and a political life, which establishes Woolf as a radically sceptical, subversive, courageous feminist. Incorporating newly discovered sources and illustrated with photos and drawings never used before, this biography is a revelation -informed, intelligent and moving.

›Die Wellen‹, Virginia Woolfs sechster Roman, wurde 1931 veröffentlicht. Es ist das originellste und tiefgründigste all ihrer Bücher, vielleicht ein Meisterwerk, ein »Klassiker« (E. M. Forster). »Die Wellen«, schrieb Stephen Spender, »das mir als größtes Werk Virginia Woolfs erscheint, ist einer dieser Romane unserer Zeit, der seit dem Tag, an dem er veröffentlicht wurde - vor beinahe zwanzig Jahren -, eine immer größere Wirkung entfaltet hat.« In den ›Wellen‹ sind sechs Personen versammelt. Ihre Stimmen evozieren die Intensität der Kindheit, die Zuversicht und sinnliche Erfahrung der Jugend, das Losgelöstsein des mittleren Alters. Sinneswahrnehmungen, Emotionen, Reflexionen kommen und gehen im Voranschreiten des Erzählstroms wie die Jahreszeiten, wie die Wellen, die Sonne. Virginia Woolfs farbig instrumentierte Beschwörung der Entwicklung von Bernard, Louis, Neville, Rhoda, Jinny und Susan - sechs ganz unterschiedliche Stimmen -, ihre kunstvolle Darstellung der Ebbe und Flut ihrer sinnlichen und intellektuellen Erfahrungen stellt eines der radikalsten Experimente der Literatur des zwanzigsten Jahrhunderts dar. ›Die Wellen‹ ist die höchst eigenwillige Antwort der Moderne auf das traditionsreiche Genre des Bildungsromans.

In Virginia Woolf and the Great War, Karen Levenback focuses on Woolf's war consciousness and how her sensitivity to representations of war in the popular press and authorized histories affected both the development of characters in her fiction, nonfictional and personal writings. As the seamless history of the prewar world had been replaced by the realities of modern war. Woolf herself understood there was no immunity from its ravages, even for civilians. Levenback's readings of Mrs. Dalloway, To the Lighthouse, and The Years, in particular - together with her understanding of civilian immunity, the operation of memory in the postwar period, and lexical resistance to accurate representations of war - are profoundly convincing in securing Woolf's position as a war novelist and thinker whose insights and writings anticipate our most current progressive theories on war's social effects and continuing presence.

During Virginia Woolf's lifetime Britain's position in the world changed, and so did the outlook of its people. The Boer War and the First World War forced politicians and citizens alike to ask how far the power of the state extended into the lives of individuals; the rise of fascism provided one menacing answer. Woolf's experiments in fiction, and her unique position in the publishing world, allowed her to address such intersections of the public and the private. Michael H. Whitworth shows how ideas and images from contemporary novelists, philosophers, theorists, and scientists fuelled her writing, and how critics, film-makers, and novelists have reinterpreted her work for later generations. The book includes a chronology of Virginia Woolf's life and times, suggestions for further reading, websites, illustrations, and a comprehensive index. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

Gruber’s groundbreaking study of the work and legacy of Virginia Woolf—an enduring feminist analysis pairing two of the twentieth century’s most extraordinary writers In 1932, Ruth Gruber earned her PhD—the youngest person ever to do so—with a stunning doctoral dissertation on Virginia Woolf. Published in 1935, the paper was the first-ever feminist critique of Woolf’s work and inspired a series of correspondences between the two writers. It also led to Gruber’s eventual meeting with Woolf, which she recounted six decades later in Virginia Woolf: The Will to Create as a Woman. Described by Gruber as “the odyssey of how I met Virginia Woolf, and how her life and work became intertwined with my life,” Virginia Woolf is a clear and insightful portrait of one of modern literature’s most innovative authors, written by one of America’s most remarkable journalists.
