Example text

Bloomsbury responded by drawing closer together and bringing in new members like E. M. Forster, Maynard Keynes, Duncan Grant, and Roger Fry. Virginia responded not with a breakdown but with a hardening of spirit and a resolution to honor Thoby舗s memory. But after weathering the loss of four family members in ten years she had begun to feel that death was an unshakeable companion. It is in this environment, then, that Woolf began work on her first novel. The writing went slowly, in part because of Woolf舗s high expectations and her shifting views of love, marriage, and women舗s position in society.

Woolf wrote prolifically and in many forms: from extensive letters, diary entries, essays, and literary reviews to short stories and novels. She authored some of the most influential novels of the early twentieth century, including Mrs. Dalloway (1925), To the Lighthouse (1927), and The Waves (1931). Her superb ear for language and her narrative conception of experience as 舠moments of being舡 earned her both renown among her contemporaries and critical and financial success. Increasing depression and the impending atrocities of World War II proved too much for Woolf舗s sensitive nature.
