Virginia Wolf

Virginia Wolf was born in Kensington Middlesex, England, on 25 January 1882. She was  an English writer.
She is considered one of the foremost modernists of the twentieth century and a pioneer in the use of stream of consciousness as a narrative device. Born in an affluent household in Kensington, London, she attended the Ladies’ Department of King’s College and was acquainted with the early reformers of women’s higher education. Woolf became one of the central subjects of the 1970s movement of feminist criticism, and her works have since garnered much attention and widespread commentary for «inspiring feminism», an aspect of her writing that was unheralded earlier. Her works are widely read all over the world and have been translated into more than fifty languages. She suffered from severe bouts of mental illness throughout her life and took her own life by drowning in 28 March 1941, at the age of 59.
