Rediscover Virginia Woolf's greatest works in beautiful new gift editions from Vintage Classics
Virginia Woolf was born in London in 1882. After her father's death
in 1904 Virginia and her sister, the painter Vanessa Bell, moved to
Bloomsbury and became the centre of 'The Bloomsbury Group'. This
informal collective of artists and writers exerted a powerful
influence over early twentieth-century British culture.
In 1912 Virginia married Leonard Woolf, a writer and social reformer. Three years later, her first novel The Voyage Out was published, followed by Night and Day (1919) and Jacob's Room (1922). Between 1925 and 1931 Virginia Woolf produced what are now regarded as her finest masterpieces, from Mrs Dalloway (1925) to The Waves (1931). She also maintained an astonishing output of literary criticism, short fiction, journalism and biography. On 28 March 1941, a few months before the publication of her final novel, Between the Acts, Virginia Woolf committed suicide.
