VIRGINIA WOOLF 1882-1941 Woolf was an enormously influential writer and thinker. She was associated with many of the most important British writers of the early twentieth century and her work exercises a continuing influence on contemporary literature. Like many of her contemporaries, she made extensive use of the stream-of-consciousness technique and we can see its use in many places in Orlando —especially in the final pages. She was not only influential as a novelist, but also as an essayist. Perhaps her best known work in this vein is A Room of One’s Own where she famously imagines Shakespeare’s sister who never had the opportunity to write because she lacked time, money, and a room of her own. Novels: The Voyage Out (1915) Night and Day (1919) Jacob's Room (1922) Mrs Dalloway (1925) To the Lighthouse (1927) Orlando (1928) The Waves (1931) The Years (1937) Between the Acts (1941) BIG QUESTIONS FOR US: 1. What kind of “biography” is this? The narrating voice makes a great many comments about the supposed form of the book—both serious and comical.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
