Virginia Woolf Died 70 Years Ago print
March 28, 2011

Virginia Woolf, one of the most important English authors committed suicide 70 years ago on March 28, 1941. She began writing professionally in 1900 and soon became one of the key figures in London literary society. One of her most famous novels, Mrs. Dalloway (1925) tells the story of a middle-aged society woman organising a party and her life is paralleled with that of a working-class veteran who has returned from the First World War bearing deep psychological scars. Virginia Woolf’s unstable nervous system could not cope with the horrors of World War II, so on March 28, 1941 she filled her pockets with stone, walked into a river and drowned. Her life and her novel Mrs. Dalloway inspired Michael Cunningham’s Pulitzer Prize winning book, The Hours, and a successful film version of the novel was released some years later.

You may buy Virginia Woolf’s Mrs. Dalloway in English and Michael Cunningham’s The Hours in German in the web shop of Hungaropress.
