A pioneer of stream of consciousness narrative, Virginia Woolf (1882–1941) is considered one of the most important modernist writers of the twentieth century. After primary tutoring at home, she attended the Ladies’ Department of Kings College London, where she was introduced to a handful of feminists and became involved in the women’s movement. Later, she joined the Bloomsbury Group, where she met her husband, Leonard Woolf. Together, they founded Hogarth Press, under which they published most of her work. Also a brilliant essayist, intellectual, and critic, she remains one of the most influential authors of all time.
