This carefully crafted ebook: “A Writer's Diary (1918 — 1941)" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents.

An invaluable guide to the art and mind of Virginia Woolf, “A Writer's Diary” was drawn by her husband from the personal record she kept over a period of twenty-seven years. Included are entries that refer to her own writing and those that are clearly writing exercises, accounts of people and scenes relevant to the raw material of her work, and finally, comments on books she was reading.

Adeline Virginia Woolf (25 January 1882 — 28 March 1941) was an English writer, and one of the foremost modernists of the twentieth century. During the interwar period, Woolf was a significant figure in London literary society and a central figure in the influential Bloomsbury Group of intellectuals. Her most famous works include the novels Mrs Dalloway (1925), To the Lighthouse (1927) and Orlando (1928), and the book-length essay A Room of One's Own (1929), with its famous dictum, “A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction.”

Quotes

    caglakurtxhas quoted2 years ago
    good or bad I have just set the last correction to Women and Fiction, or A Room of One’s Own. I shall never read it again I suppose. Good or bad? Has an uneasy life in it I think: you feel the creature arching its back and galloping on, though as usual much is watery and flimsy and pitched in too high a voice.
    Said Sadikhovhas quoted5 years ago
    Yet, if one is to deal with people on a large scale and say what one thinks, how can one avoid melancholy?
    Anna Avdeevahas quoted5 years ago
    For Bliss is long enough to give her a chance of going deeper. Instead she is content with superficial smartness; and the whole conception is poor, cheap, not the vision, however imperfect, of an interesting mind. She writes badly too. And the effect was as I say, to give me an impression of her callousness and hardness as a human being. I shall read it again; but I don’t suppose I shall change. She’ll go on doing this sort of thing, perfectly to her and Murry’s satisfaction.
