- MONDAY OR TUESDAY -Eight Stories - Dover Thrift Editions
DetailsOne of the most distinguished critics and innovative authors of the twentieth century, Virginia Woolf published two novels before this collection appeared in 1921. However, it was these early stories that first earned her a reputation as a writer with "the liveliest imagination and most delicate style of her time." Influenced by Joyce, Proust, and the theories of William James, Bergson, and Freud, she strove to write a new fiction that emphasized the continuous flow of consciousness, time's passage as both a series of sequential moments and a longer flow of years and centuries, and the essential indefinability of character.Readers can discover these and other aspects of her influential style in the eight stories collected here, among them a delightful, feminist put-down of the male intellect in "A Society" and a brilliant and sensitive portrayal of nature in "Kew Gardens." Also included are "An Unwritten Novel," "The String Quartet," "A Haunted House," "Blue & Green," "The Mark on the Wall," and the title story. In recent years, Woolf's fiction, feminism, and high-minded sensibilities have earned her an ever-growing audience of readers.This splendid collection offers those readers not only the inestimable pleasures of the stories themselves, but an excellent entree into the larger body of Woolf's work.ABOUT THE AUTHOR : Virginia Woolf (1842-1941) was best known for her novels Mrs. Dalloway and To the Lighthouse. Throughout her life, she suffered through mental illness (what we would call bipolar disorder these days). She committed suicide, drowning herself at the age of 59.
