Description

“Street Haunting: A London Adventure” is a 1930 essay written by Virginia Woolf, inspired by observations made whilst walking the streets of London. 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. Woolf was a central figure in the feminist criticism movement of the 1970s, her works having inspired countless women to take up the cause. 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. A poignant essay not to be missed by those with an interest in feminism and feminist literature. Contents include: “Virginia Woolf”, “Evening Over Sussex: Reflections in a Motor Car, an Essay by Virginia Woolf”, “Street Haunting”. Other notable works by this author include: “To the Lighthouse” (1927), “Orlando” (1928), and “A Room of One’s Own” (1929). Read & Co. Great Essays is republishing this classic essay now in a brand new edition complete with Woolf’s essay “Evening Over Sussex: Reflections in a Motor Car”.
