Virginia Woolf was born Adeline Virginia Stephen in 1882 in London, and became one of the most powerful voices of modernism in the 20th century. Alongside such prominent novels as Mrs Dalloway and To the Lighthouse, Woolf wrote essays and short fiction. With her husband, Leonard Woolf, she founded the Hogarth Press, a publishing house to which the Bloomsbury group was associated with, author and literary critic E.M. Forster and painter Vanessa Bell (Woolf’s sister) among its members. In 1941, she took her own life.
