To the Lighthouse – inglés (9789878466071)

Sinopsis del producto

The novel centres on the Ramsay family and their visits to the Isle of Skye in Scotland between 1910 and 1920.
To the Lighthouse, considered by many to be Virginia Woolf’s finest novel, is a remarkably original work, showing the thoughts and actions of the members of a family and their guests on two separate occasions, ten years apart. The setting is Mr. and Mrs. Ramsay’s house on a Scottish island, where they traditionally take their summer holidays, overlooking a bay with a lighthouse.
From the seemingly trivial postponement of a visit to a nearby lighthouse, Woolf constructs a remarkable, moving examination of the complex tensions and allegiances of family life and the conflict between men and women.

Mrs. Dalloway – en Inglés (9789878466033)

Sinopsis del producto

“Mrs. Dalloway is one of the most moving, revolutionary artworks of the twentieth century.”
In this vivid portrait of a single day in a woman’s life, Mrs. Clarissa Dalloway is preoccupied with the last-minute details of preparation for a party while in her mind she is something much more than a perfect society hostess. As she readies her house for friends and neighbors, she is flooded with remembrances of the past—the passionate loves of her carefree youth, her practical choice of husband, and the approach and retreat of war. And, met with the realities of the present, Clarissa reexamines the choices that brought her there, hesitantly looking ahead to the unfamiliar work of growing old.
Virginia Woolf was a luminous novelist, a prolific essayist and book reviewer. With her husband Leonard, Woolf established and ran the Hogarth Press which published works by influential modernist writers. In their first five years, they published Katherine Mansfield, T. S. Eliot, E. M. Forster, Clive Bell, Roger Fry and Sigmund Freud. Woolf’s haunting writing, her succinct insights into feminist, artistic, historical, political issues, and her revolutionary experiments with points of view and stream-of-consciousness altered the course of literature.

Orlando: a biography – en inglés (9789878466040)

Sinopsis del producto

As his tale begins, Orlando is a passionate sixteen-year-old nobleman whose days are spent in rowdy revelry, filled with the colorful delights of Queen Elizabeth I’s court. By the close, three centuries have passed, and he will have transformed into a thirty-six-year-old woman in the year 1928. Orlando’s journey is also an internal one—he is an impulsive poet who learns patience in matter of the heart, and a woman who knows what it is to be a man.
Virginia Woolf’s most unusual creation, Orlando is a fantastical biography as well as a funny, exuberant romp through history that examines the true nature of sexuality.
First published on 11 October 1928. A semi-biographical novel based in part on the life of Woolf’s lover Vita Sackville-West. The novel has been influential stylistically, and is considered important in literature generally, and particularly in the history of women’s writing and gender studies.

The waves – inglés (9789878466057)

Sinopsis del producto

Innovative and deeply poetic, The Waves is often regarded as Virginia Woolf’s masterpiece.
It begins with six children—three boys and three girls—playing in a garden by the sea, and follows their lives as they grow up, experience friendship and love, and grapple with the death of their beloved friend Percival. Instead of describing their outward expressions of grief, Woolf draws her characters from the inside, revealing their inner lives: their aspirations, their triumphs and regrets, their awareness of unity and isolation.
More than any of Virginia Woolf’s other novels, The Waves conveys the full complexity and richness of human experience.

A room of one’s own – en inglés (9789878466026)

Sinopsis del producto

A Room of One’s Own is one of Virginia Woolf’s most influential works and widely recognized for its extraordinary contribution to the women’s movement. The work was ranked by The Guardian newspaper as number 45 in the 100 World’s Best Non-fiction Books.
In this extraordinary essay, Virginia Woolf examines the limitations of womanhood in the early twentieth century. With the startling prose and poetic licence of a novelist, she makes a bid for freedom, emphasizing that the lack of an independent income, and the titular room of one´s own, prevents most women from reaching their full literary potential. As relevant in its insight and indignation today as it was when first delivered in those hallowed lecture theatres, A Room of One´s Own remains both a beautiful work of literature and an incisive analysis of women and their place in the world.
