Virginia Woolf was a very important woman writer in the XX century. She was impressionistic, a literary style which attempts to inspire impressions rather than recreating reality.
She also used stream of consciousness is a narrative mode or method that attempts to depict the multitudinous thoughts and feelings which pass through the mind.
She was born in 1882, her family relatives were important people (as her famous friends), and involved with literature. Her mother, Julia Jackson, died when the child was twelve or thirteen years old. Virginia and her sister were educated at home in their father’s library.
Early traumas darkened her childhood that inspired her writings, including being sexually abused by her half-brothers George and Gerald Duckworth, which she wrote about in her essays.
1912, eight years after her father’s death, Virginia married Leonard Woolf, a brilliant young writer and critic from Cambridge. They shared interests in the same topics (literature, etc).
