Description

‘Woolf is modern … With Joyce and Eliot she has shaped a literary century’ Jeanette Winterson

Virginia Woolf tested the boundaries of fiction in these short stories, developing a new language of sensation, feeling and thought, and recreating in words the ‘swarm and confusion of life’. Defying categorization, the stories range from the more traditional narrative style of ‘Solid Objects’ through the fragile impressionism of ‘Kew Gardens’ to the abstract exploration of consciousness in ‘The Mark on the Wall’.

Edited with an Introduction and Notes by Sandra Kemp
