Virginia Woolf is one of the most important modernist writers of 20th century literature. In addition to 9 novels, she wrote prolifically on artistic theory, literary criticism, feminism and women’s writing. She wrote short fiction, biographical work, and numerous published letters. She played a central role in the Bloomsbury Group, and was one of the first to use the ‘stream of consciousness’ narrative device. Her intense intimate relationship with Vita Sackville-West was thoroughly documented in their letters and diaries, and she is widely considered a queer literary icon.
