Description

Arguably her most experimental work, “The Waves” is a 1931 novel by Virginia Woolf that comprises soliloquies by six characters punctuated by third-person descriptions of a coastal scene. Through her characters, Woolf examines the concepts of self, individuality, and community in a poignant and thoroughly thought-provoking novel. Highly recommended for fans of modernist literature and lovers of Woolf’s seminal work. 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. Other notable works by this author include: “To the Lighthouse” (1927), “Orlando” (1928), and “A Room of One’s Own” (1929). Read & Co. Classics is proudly republishing this novel now in a new edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
