    Despertar é uma espécie de morte... Virginia Woolf foi e é uma das mulheres mais poderosas do século XX! Lutou contra as barreiras das mentes num mundo dominado por homens! ... Viveu encerrada em si Em memória Só Em mente*

    I re-read Virginia Woolf's classic, "Mrs. Dalloway", for a book club discussion. We had an interesting and thought provoking discussion. The book is written stream of consciousness - which is a challenge at times to follow. It's not an "easy read" but it's well worth reading. Virginia's writing is extraordinarily beautiful - poetic. On the surface, this story covers one day in the life of Clarissa, a wealthy woman, who is planning a party in the 1920s.

On the surface, this story covers one day in the life of Clarissa, a wealthy woman, who is planning a party in the 1920s. What makes the book extraordinary is that Virginia Woolf brilliantly weaves into the story observations about social issues of the time period. By observing a day in the life of Clarissa, the reader gets a glimpse into what the norms of society were at that time. Virginia describes the prevailing attitudes in English society in the 20s toward women rights, homosexuality, mental illness and social class.

    So surprising after all these years, to finally read To the Lighthouse and discover how brilliant Woolf was: her style and her penetrating intelligence. Brilliantly crafted novel. I loved the moments of reflection that I could relate to so well even though I had mistakenly thought no individual had ever put a woman's thoughts into writing. She examined what it means to exist. With a microscope. And the part I find really poignant is how subtly she handled how WWI had blown up their world.

Woolf's modernism reflects the jarring changes from the implosion of the previous century's building pressure, unlike any time in the history of western civ.

    A lovely, quick read, with a wonderful variety of illustrations. I liked how the portrait is painted through different types of writing-letters, diary entries-not just her novels

    I am giving this book 3 stars because it really is a great format. All of Woolf’s writings are in chronological order and seemingly complete. This being my first real delve into her works I found this very helpful. However,I must say honestly that I found Virginia Woolf’s writing very melancholy and sedate. She does not seem to have the same endearing qualities I have found in other authors during her time, in particular Edith Wharton.

She does not seem to have the same endearing qualities I have found in other authors during her time, in particular Edith Wharton. This is no means a criticism of her writing which is fluid and descriptive. She writes with an open honesty which for her time would have appeared quirky or on the verge of scandalous. She could be described as a feminist of her time and I know often is-I will say that she is definitely progressive and unconventional for her time.

    What a creative, emotional and utterly hilarious book. Woolf's writing in this book is absolutely exquisite. It took a bit of getting used to, with the length of Orlando's life, and the metamorphosis he went through half way through the book. This book is way ahead of its time, and even maybe way ahead of OUR time. What a creative, emotional and utterly hilarious book. Woolf's writing in this book is absolutely exquisite.

    What's there not to love about this woman? She was so ahead of her time. This edition is special for me. I got in my dream trip to England in 2017. There's a house museum and art gallery in Bournmeouth, Russell-Cotes, where they sell books in the entrance. I got this huge hardcover beauty for just 8 British pounds.

    I'm an admirer of William Faulkner's stream of consciousness novels. Virginia Woolf makes reading an extreme intellectual sport. I downloaded the complete works, but really only intended to read Mrs. Dalloway. You truly live, breathe, and wander through the characters' minds.

    I have tried but I just don't like Virginia Woolf. Just listed to the audio book version of Mrs. Dalloway and could barely finish it. I am so glad to be done with it. She is very poetic and writes beautifully but I just cannot get into her books. I have tried but I just don't like Virginia Woolf.

    Este libro, más que nada es una breve biografía de esta gran escritora que en muchas ocasiones había tenido la intención de leer pero siempre había algo que me lo impedía. En realidad es un genio de la literatura y como tal, envuelta en la locura de su trastorno bipolar I (al tener tanto episodios maníacos como depresivos), sus constantes intentos de suicidio, sus amantes, la frialdad y dominante personalidad de su marido, y sin duda alguna su ingenio. Plagada de tragedias, desde la muerte de su Este libro, más que nada es una breve biografía de esta gran escritora que en muchas ocasiones había tenido la intención de leer pero siempre había algo que me lo impedía. En realidad es un genio de la literatura y como tal, envuelta en la locura de su trastorno bipolar I (al tener tanto episodios maníacos como depresivos), sus constantes intentos de suicidio, sus amantes, la frialdad y dominante personalidad de su marido, y sin duda alguna su ingenio. Plagada de tragedias, desde la muerte de su madre, la preferencia para sus hermanos y luego la muerte del mayor de los dos, el casamiento de su hermana, todo ello aunado a la historia de trastornos mentales en su familia, la llevaron a presentar delirios y pensamientos que la condujeron a su tercer intento y cometido suicidio. Muy curioso el hecho que haya conocido a personalidades de la talla de Sigmund Freud y Katherine Mansfield. A parte del hecho que vivió ambas guerras mundiales, y que su marido, un judío no sufriera las consecuencias que los de su misma nacionalidad vivieron en aquella época. Cómo no fue descubierto me queda aún como gran duda. Sin duda pude conocer un poco más a esta trágica pero brillante escritora.

    Virginia Woolf is not for everybody. I have talked to plenty of people that claim to hate her. However, I love her. She makes strong feminist points. She gets the reader thinking. She is not only pointing out flaws in society, but she exposes flaws in character. She makes the reader question their own values and think about hard topics, such as if life has a purpose, if men and women have predestined roles, and what forms a person's identity. She is an amazing writer, with wonderful stories that Virginia Woolf is not for everybody. I have talked to plenty of people that claim to hate her. However, I love her.

    Virginia Woolf’s first novel explores range of human emotions. Classic English author’s compelling story of developing love, happiness, and tragedy among a group of travelers who meet on a cruise ship. Their stay on a distant island isolates them from everyday concerns, accelerating the development of relationships. VW’s uncanny insights into distinct people’s perspectives astounds in this first novel.

    3.5 My favorite part of this illustrated anthology is the pictures. I enjoyed that it gave me an overview of her life, work, diary, relationships, marriage, depression and finally death. I have collected four of her books, in addition to this one, and I think this was a nice way to start. I don't have a Room of Ones Own, and after the writings from it in this anthology I know I'd like to read it. 3.5 My favorite part of this illustrated anthology is the pictures.

    Not complete This is not a complete collection. A Room of One’s Own and many others are missing. The writings that are in this collection are there twice and there is no master table of contents at the beginning like the description claims. I hope this is fixed.
