VIRGINIA WOOLF (1882–1941) was one of the major literary figures of the twentieth century. An admired literary critic, she authored many essays, letters, journals, and short stories in addition to her groundbreaking novels.Review :
A posthumous collection of her essays, written over a twenty year period, but issued ten years after her Second Common Reader. For the most part, the essays fall into two classes slight, charming, almost idyllic bits of atmosphere writing; and critical essays, chiefly on figures of a period past (Coleridge, Sara Coleridge, Shelley, Henry James, George Moore and others). There are a few - a very few - more personal bits - one on the subject of her horror of being thought middlebrow - high??, yes, but never the other. Only one even touches on the war. Interesting to read immediately after the Forster Virginia Woolf, and to trace and check with him through a fresh approach to unread material. (Kirkus Reviews)
