Virginia Woolf was born in London in 1882 and was homeschooled for the most part of her childhood, in English classics and Victorian literature. She started writing professionally in 1900 and went on to become a significant member of London’s literary society as well as the Bloomsbury Group. During this course, she came up with timeless literature classics like Orlando, Mrs Dalloway, To the Lighthouse and many more and was largely celebrated for her poetic take upon examining the complex lives of her characters.
For instance, in her essay titled A Room of One’s Own, she tries to deduce why the history of Western Civilisation reflects such less role of women geniuses. Her style of writing in ‘The Mark on The Wall’ was widely analysed by writers and was used as an avid example of introspective writing.
Much days of her life saw Woolf suffer from mental disorders mostly revolving around depression. At the age of 59, the prolific writer took her own life by drowning into the River Ouse by filling her overcoat pockets with stones.
