5-volume hardcover set with dust jackets. "...marvelous for the immediacy and lack of self-consciousness with which Woolf transcribes her daily life... No torment or psychic struggle here; indeed at one point Virginia reflects that she lacks an 'inner life.' But whatever it is she has instead is much more interesting." - Library Journal "Adeline Virginia Woolf (25 January 1882 – 28 March 1941) was an English author, essayist, publisher, and writer of short stories, regarded as one of the foremost modernist literary figures of the twentieth century. During the interwar period, Woolf was a significant figure in London literary society and a member of the Bloomsbury Group. 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."...Woolf is considered one of the greatest innovators in the English language. In her works she experimented with stream-of-consciousness and the underlying psychological as well as emotional motives of characters. Woolf's reputation declined sharply after World War II, but her eminence was re-established with the surge of Feminist criticism in the 1970s..."Keywords: BIOGRAPHY DIARY WORLD LITERATURE CLASSICS ENGLISH NOVELISTS LITERARY JOURNAL Mixed set of first editions (2 & 5) and reprints (1, 3, 4).
