История из серии (Женщины в искусстве) Вирджинии Вульф , литературный гений с большой грустью.
Virginia Woolf's story is one of both literary genius and great sadness. Her mother was strong-willed and resourceful and her father an eminent scholar, and both parents encouraged free thought in their daughter. Eventually she joined the mature discussions of her brother and his friends from Cambridge, who before long were treating her as an equal.
The notorious Bloomsbury Group was born. Like other members of the Bloomsbury Group, Woolf became a founder of literary Modernism.
In the 1920s and 1930s, she wrote many insightful and socially progressive essays and a series of groundbreaking experimental novels.
The publishing company she began with her husband distributed some of the first works of T.S. Eliot, Katherine Mansfield, and others, and it became the main source of Freudian and psychoanalytic theory in England. Woolf struggled with "madness" throughout her life, and it eventually conquered her.
But her unique expression of the human drama changed the very nature of storytelling.
