To the Lighthouse
Woolf, Virginia

Language: English | Category: Novel (Psychological) | Audio Book: Not Available

To the Lighthouse follows and extends the tradition of modernist novelists like Marcel Proust and James Joyce, where the plot is secondary to philosophical introspection, and the prose can be winding and hard to follow. The novel includes little dialogue and almost no action; most of it is written as thoughts and observations. The novel recalls the power of childhood emotions and highlights the impermanence of adult relationships. One of the book’s several themes is the ubiquity of transience.

Woolf, Virginia - Una Casa Encantada - Language: Spanish, Short Stories - Format: ePub
Adeline Virginia Woolf (Stephen de soltera); (Londres, 25 de enero de 1882 – Lewes, Sussex, 28 de marzo de 1941) fue una novelista, ensayista, escritora de cartas, editora, feminista y escritora de cuentos británica, considerada (More) como una de las más destacadas figuras del modernismo literario del siglo XX. Durante el período de entreguerras, Woolf fue una figura significativa en la sociedad literaria de Londres y un miembro del grupo de Bloomsbury. Sus obras más famosas incluyen las novelas La señora Dalloway (1925), Al faro (1927), Orlando: una biografía (1928), Las olas (1931), y su largo ensayo Una habitación propia (1929), con su famosa sentencia «Una mujer debe tener dinero y una habitación propia si va a escribir ficción». Fue redescubierta durante la década de 1970, gracias a este ensayo, uno de los textos más citados del movimiento feminista, que expone las dificultades de las mujeres para consagrarse a la escritura en un mundo dominado por los hombres.
