Happy Birthday Virginia Woolf!

            Virginia Woolf was born on January 25, 1882. She is an English writer. Virginia is one of the leading modernist writers of the twentieth century, as well as a feminist. During the inter-war period, she was a leading figure in London literary society and a central member of the Bloomsbury Group, which brought together English writers, artists, and philosophers. The novels Mrs. Dalloway (1925), To the Lighthouse (1927) and Orlando (1928), as well as the essay A Room of One’s Own (1929), remain among her most famous writings. Virginia Woolf gained notoriety and was one of the central subjects of the 1970s movement of feminist criticism. Her writings brought much attention to being “inspiring feminism”. Virginia’s works are widely read all over the world and have been translated into more than fifty languages. She suffered from depression and mental illness throughout her life, having lost both her parents at an early age. She ended taking her own life by drowning in 1941 at the age of 59.
