London: Published by Leonard & Virginia Woolf at the Hogarth Press
From a very early age, Virginia Woolf (1882-1941) was ‘scribbling’, as she once wrote: ‘ever since I was a little creature, scribbling a story in the manner of Hawthorne on the green plush sofa in the drawing room at St. Ives while the grown-ups dined’. Woolf was another who adopted the ‘stream of consciousness’ technique. Mrs Dalloway, her second novel (1925), details one day in the life of high society woman, Clarissa Dalloway, in post-WWI England. It contains ‘interior’ narrative that flips back and forth in time. In 2005, The Times listed the novel as one of the 100 best English-language novels written since 1923. This is the first edition, which carries her own imprint: ‘Published by Leonard & Virginia Woolf at the Hogarth Press’.
