About this book


This book tells the story of Virginia Woolf's literary career. It emphasises the importance of her ownership of the Hogarth Press, whereby she gained the freedom to write as she pleased. This made possible a career of extraordinary formal innovations. Each of her books was unlike every other. Her career was a series of different choices, statements and masks. This book attempts to discover why, at each point in her career, she chose to write as she did.
