Beschreibung zu „THE VOYAGE OUT“

Woolf originally began work on "The Voyage Out" in 1910 and had finished an early draft by 1912. Yet the novel had a long and difficult gestation and was not published until 1915. It was written during a period in which Woolf was especially psychologically vulnerable. She suffered from periods of depression and at one point attempted suicide. The resultant work contained the seeds of all that would blossom in her later work: the innovative narrative style, the focus on feminine consciousness, sexuality and death.
Virginia Woolf (1882–1941) was an English writer, and one of the foremost modernists of the twentieth century. During the interwar period, Woolf was a significant figure in London literary society and a central figure in the influential Bloomsbury Group of intellectuals. Her most famous works include the novels Mrs Dalloway (1925), To the Lighthouse (1927) and Orlando (1928), and the book-length essay A Room of One's Own (1929), with its famous dictum, "A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction."

Über Virginia Woolf

Virginia Woolf nació en Londres el 25 de enero de 1882 y murió el 28 de marzo de 1941, ahogada en el río Ouse. Al fallecer su padre, el conocido hombre de letras sir Leslie Stephen, Virginia y su hermana Vanessa abandonaron el elegante barrio de Kensington y se trasladaron al bohemio Bloomsbury, que dio nombre al brillante grupo literario formado alrededor de las hermanas Stephen. En 1912, Virginia se casó con Leonard Woolf; años después, fundaron y dirigieron juntos la editorial Hogarth Press. Considerada como una de las autoras más revolucionarias e imprescindibles del siglo xx, entre sus obras más importantes cabe destacar La señora Dalloway (1925), Al faro (1927), Orlando (1928), Las olas (1931), Los años (1937) y Entre actos (1941).
