Los años

by Virginia Woolf

Publicada en 1937, Los años fue la novela más popular de Virginia Woolf durante su vida, quizá debido a su factura clásica, decididamente más convencional que su obra anterior.Los Pargiter, una típica familia burguesa, recorren en estas páginas un periodo de tiempo comprendido entre los últimos estertores de la era victoriana y los primeros años treinta. Y en el seno de su hogar se dramatizan las tensiones históricas, sociales e ideológicas de esa época de transición y niebla, cuando un mundo y una idea de la civilización se desmoronaban para dar paso a un tiempo nuevo y lleno de incertidumbre. La guerra, la estructura patriarcal, el capitalismo, el Imperio o el auge del fascismo son algunas de al sombras que se proyectan en las paredes de la casa de esta familia inglesa, emparentada, podría decirse, con los Bunddenbrook, la familia alemana creada por Thomas Mann en su novela homónima.

Chekhov's Three Sisters and Woolf's Orlando

by Anton Chekhov Virginia Woolf Sarah Ruhl

"[Ruhl's Orlando] captures both the intellectual spirit and the literary brilliance of Woolf's work. . . . Ruhl writes with the imaginative sweep that allows Woolf's poetry to soar."--Variety "Sarah Ruhl's smart new translation [of Three Sisters] feels just right to contemporary American ears--lean, colloquial, and conversational for us and true to Chekhov's original work."--The Cincinnati Enquirer In her stage adaptation of Virginia Woolf's gender-bending, period-hopping novel, award-winning playwright Sarah Ruhl "is her usual unfailingly elegant, unbeatably witty self, cleverly braiding her own brand-name wit with Woolf's" (New York )magazine. Preserving Woolf's vital ideas and lyrical tone, Ruhl brings to the stage the life of an Elizabethan nobleman who's magically transformed into an immortal woman. In her fresh translation of Three Sisters, the Anton Chekhov classic of ennui and frustration, Ruhl employs her signature lyricism and elegant understanding of intimacy to reveal the discontent felt by fretful Olga, unhappy Masha, and idealistic Irina as they long to leave rural Russia for the ever-alluring Moscow. Sarah Ruhl's other plays include the Pulitzer Prize finalists In the Next Room (or the vibrator play) and The Clean House, as well as Passion Play, Dean Man's Cell Phone, Demeter in the City, Eurydice, Melancholy Play, and Late: a cowboy song. She is the recipient of a Whiting Writers' Award, a PEN/Laura Pels Award, and a MacArthur Fellowship. Her plays have premiered on Broadway, Off-Broadway, and in many theaters around the world.

Presente y pasado, la historia más lejana y la historia que está a punto de ocurrir, el mundo remoto y el mundo que ya empieza a desaparecer se entrelazan en esta prodigiosa novela, el último acto de una de las representaciones literarias más poderosas, valientes y perdurables de todos los tiempos.

Jacob's Room

by Virginia Woolf

He left everything just as it was.... Did he think he would come back?Jacob's Room was the first book in Virginia Woolf's unique, experimental style, making it an important text of early Modernism. Ostensibly, the story is about the life of Jacob Flanders, the title character, who is evoked purely by other characters' perceptions and memories of him. Jacob remains an absence throughout. Elegiac in tone, the work beautifully memorializes the longing and pain of a generation that lost so many of its most promising young men to World War I. Upon it's release E.M. Forster remarked, "amazing.... a new type of fiction has swum into view." The Art of The Novella Series Too short to be a novel, too long to be a short story, the novella is generally unrecognized by academics and publishers. Nonetheless, it is a form beloved and practiced by literature's greatest writers. In the Art Of The Novella series, Melville House celebrates this renegade art form and its practitioners with titles that are, in many instances, presented in book form for the first time.

Mrs. Dalloway

by Virginia Woolf

(Book Jacket Status: Jacketed)Mrs. Dalloway chronicles a June day in the life of Clarissa Dalloway-a day that is taken up with running minor errands in preparation for a party and that is punctuated, toward the end, by the suicide of a young man she has never met. In giving an apparently ordinary day such immense resonance and significance-infusing it with the elemental conflict between death and life-Virginia Woolf triumphantly discovers her distinctive style as a novelist. Originally published in 1925, Mrs. Dalloway is Woolf's first complete rendering of what she described as the "luminous envelope" of consciousness: a dazzling display of the mind's inside as it plays over the brilliant surface and darker depths of reality.This edition uses the text of the original British publication of Mrs. Dalloway, which includes changes Woolf made that never appeared in the first or subsequent American editions.From the Hardcover edition.

Night and Day

by Virginia Woolf

Katherine Hilbery and Woolf have illustrious literary ancestors: in Katherine's case, her poet grandfather, and in Woolf's, her father Leslie Stephen, writer, philosopher, and editor. Both desire to break away from the demands of the previous generation without disowning it altogether. Katherine must decide whether or not she loves the iconoclastic Ralph Denham; Woolf seeks a way of experimenting with the novel for that still allows her to express her affection for the literature of the past. This is the most traditional of Woolf's novels, yet even here we can see her beginning to break free; in this, her second novel, with its strange mixture of comedy and high seriousness, Woolf had already found her own characteristic voice.

Las olas

by Virginia Woolf

Orlando is one of the most unforgettable creations of twentieth-century literature. He emerges as a young man at the court of Queen Elizabeth I and progresses, with breathtaking ease, through three centuries until, by now a woman, she arrives in the bustle and diversion of the 1920s. for Virginia Woolf, a leading figure of the Bloomsbury Group, Orlando was more than a fantastic flight of imagination. It was a roman à clef, a love letter for her lover, the charismatic, eccentric bisexual, Vita Sackville West. Orlando's journey, from wondrous youth barbed by love, to fêted writer, settled in her femininity, is a wild and curiously relevant fable for our times.

A Room of One's Own (Annotated)

by Virginia Woolf Mark Hussey Susan Gubar

In A Room of One's Own, Virginia Woolf imagines that Shakespeare had a sister: a sister equal to Shakespeare in talent, equal in genius, but whose legacy is radically different.This imaginary woman never writes a word and dies by her own hand, her genius unexpressed. But if only she had found the means to create, urges Woolf, she would have reached the same heights as her immortal sibling. In this classic essay,Virginia Woolf takes on the establishment, using her gift of language to dissect the world around her and give a voice to those who have none. Her message is simple: A woman must have a fixed income and a room of her own in order to have the freedom to create.Annotated and with an introduction by Susan Gubar

La señora Dalloway

by Virginia Woolf

Relata un día en la vida londinense de Clarissa, una dama de alta alcurnia casada con un diputado conservador y madre de una adolescente. La historia comienza una soleada mañana de 1923 y termina esa misma noche, cuando empiezan a retirarse los invitados de una fiesta que se celebra en la mansión de los Dalloway. Aunque en el curso del día acaece un hecho trágico -el suicidio de un joven que volvió de la guerra psíquicamente perturbado-, lo esencial de la obra estriba en que los sucesos están narrados desde la mente de los personajes, con un lenguaje capaz de dibujar los meandros y ritmos escurridizos de la conciencia y de expresar la condición de la mujer de un modo a la vez íntimo y objetivo.«Tal vez su obra maestra. Exquisita y soberbiamente construida.» E.M. Forster

Three Guineas is written as a series of letters in which Virginia Woolf ponders the efficacy of donating to various causes to prevent war.

This pacifist-feminist essay is a classic whose message resonates loudly in our contemporary global situation.Annotated and with an introduction by Jane Marcus
