Born and raised in a privileged english household Adeline Virginia Woolf was raised to be one of the most important modernist 20th-century authors and also a pioneer in the use of stream of consciousness as a narrative device.In her lifetime, Woolf was outspoken on many topics that were considered controversial, some of which are now considered progressive, others regressive. She was an ardent feminist at a time when women's rights were barely recognised, and anti-colonialist, anti-imperialist and a pacifist when chauvinism was popular.
For some of her great words, swipe left.
