    Let’s start this discussion on Virginia Woolf books by looking at your biography of Woolf, you mention that when you were studying English literature as an undergraduate at Oxford University, there weren’t any lectures on Woolf, and as a graduate student, you were told that Woolf was a ‘minor modernist’, not to be classed with the likes of James Joyce, T. S. Eliot or D. H. Lawrence. Woolf's technical experiments: Virginia Woolf (–) first began to experiment with her trademark style — a more delicate or poetic rendering of consciousness where she believed the truth.

    Virginia Woolf was one of the most important writers of the twentieth century. As the author of works including Mrs Dalloway, To the Lighthouse and A Room of One's Own, she is celebrated both as a Modernist and as a feminist involvement in the lively and controversial Bloomsbury Group, which included the writer Lytton Strachey, the painters Vanessa Bell and Roger/5.   The remaining chapters, as well as the guide to further reading, have all been fully updated. The Cambridge Companion to Virginia Woolf remains the first port of call for students new to Woolf's work, with its informative, readable style, chronology and authoritative information about secondary : Cambridge University Press.
