Monday or Tuesday
Originally hand-printed at her Hogarth Press in Richmond, Monday or Tuesday is the only collection of short stories that Virginia Woolf published during her lifetime, providing a fascinating insight into the early stages of development of themes that would blossom in her later masterpieces.
From the impressionist description of four groups of people walking by a flowerbed in the botanic gardens at Kew to the soaring flight of a heron above the teeming life of towns and cities below and the reveries of a woman as she looks at a mark on the wall, the eight pieces included in this volume showcase Woolf’s inimitable observational powers and her boldly modern style of writing.
She was doing with language something like what Jimi Hendrix does with a guitar.
The most famous member of the Bloomsbury Group, Virginia Woolf (1882–1941) was a novelist, essayist and critic. Her writing established her as one of Modernism’s leading exponents, as well as a pioneering feminist. Her most famous works include To the Lighthouse, Orlando and Mrs Dalloway.
