Adeline Virginia Woolf (1882–1941) was an English writer. She is widely hailed as being among the most influential modernist authors of the 20th century and a pioneer of stream of consciousness narration. She suffered numerous nervous breakdowns during her life primarily as a result of the deaths of family members, and it is now believed that she may have suffered from bipolar disorder. In 1941, Woolf drowned herself in the River Ouse at Lewes, aged 59. The last novel written by Woolf, “Between the Acts” is set just before the onset of World War II and describes a play and all its elements performed at an rustic English Village festival. The chief portion of the book is written in verse, representing one of Woolf’s most lyrical works. A must read for fans and collectors of Woolf’s seminal work. Other notable works by this author include: “To the Lighthouse” (1927), “Orlando” (1928), and “A Room of One’s Own” (1929). Read & Co.
