Virginia Woolf was a pioneering British writer and intellectual, widely regarded as one of the foremost modernist authors of the 20th century. Born in London in 1882, she was a central figure in the Bloomsbury Group, a circle of artists and writers who sought to challenge the conventions of Victorian society. Throughout her career, Woolf experimented with narrative form and structure, producing groundbreaking works such as “Mrs. Dalloway” (1925) and “To the Lighthouse” (1927), which are now considered classic examples of modernist literature. Her writing was marked by a strong feminist perspective, a deep sensitivity to the complexities of human consciousness, and a commitment to exploring the boundaries of artistic expression. Despite facing numerous challenges, including mental illness and poverty, Woolf remained one of the most influential and innovative writers of her time, and her work continues to inspire new generations of readers and writers.
