The last of Virginia Woolf’s novels published during her lifetime. “The Years” (1937) is seemingly epic in scope, spanning fifty years and the trials and tribulations of an extended family, but remains in-depth and personal focusing on a single day in each chosen year to give the reader a real connection as we watch the characters and relationships evolve and grow through their life time. 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: “Pattledom” (1925), “A Room of One’s Own” (1929), “The Captain’s Death Bed: and Other Essays” (1950). Read & Co.
