Virginia Woolf (1882–1941) was an English author and an inventive influence on the 20th-century novel. With her husband, Leonard Woolf, she established the Hogarth Press in 1917. Their home was the center for the Bloomsbury group. In her writing she focused on the flow of commonplace experience through the stream of consciousness technique. Her prose is graceful, symbolic, and visual. Woolf's novels include Mrs. Dalloway (1925), To the Lighthouse (1927), Orlando (1928), The Waves (1931), and Between the Acts (1941). Her criticism is contained in The Common Reader (1925) and volumes of essays, letters, and diaries. She also wrote two feminist tracts, A Room of One's Own (1929) and Three Guineas (1938).
