Über den Autor

Virginia Woolf, born Adeline Virginia Stephen on January 25, 1882, in London, stands as a central figure in the landscape of modernist literature. Her literary contributions, marked by lyrical prose and a pioneering use of stream of consciousness, have profoundly influenced the 20th-century novel. Woolf's upbringing in an intellectual household, where she had access to her father's extensive library, undoubtedly contributed to her literary prowess. She began writing professionally in 1900, and her works often confronted topics of feminism, mental illness, and human existence with unprecedented depth and introspection. Notable works such as 'Mrs. Dalloway' (1925), 'To the Lighthouse' (1927), and 'Orlando' (1928) exhibited her narrative innovations and psychological acumen. 'A Writer's Diary' (1953), a posthumously published collection of Woolf's personal writings edited by her husband, Leonard Woolf, offers insights into her creative process and literary genius. It remains an indispensable resource for understanding her literary journey and the shaping of her novels. Tragically, Woolf's life was marred by mental health challenges, and she took her own life on March 28, 1941. Nonetheless, her literary legacy endures, making her one of the most esteemed writers in English literature.
