The short story is often viewed as an inferior relation to the novel, but it is an art in itself. To take a story and distill its essence into just a few pages is not an easy task. Many try and many fail. This series looks at short stories from a variety of accomplished writers.

In this volume we examine the short stories of Virginia Woolf, many of which include elements of modernism like experimental writing and stream of consciousness, of which she is considered a pioneer, and act as an enlightening introduction to her longer fiction. Included here are “A Haunted House,” “A Society,” “An Unwritten Novel,” “Kew Gardens,” “The Mark on the Wall,” and others.

About the Author

Virginia Woolf (1882–1941) was born in London, the daughter of Sir Leslie Stephen, first editor of the Dictionary of National Biography. From 1915 when she published her first novel, The Voyage Out, Woolf maintained an astonishing output of fiction, literary criticism, essays, and biography. In 1912 she married Leonard Woolf, and in 1917 they founded the Hogarth Press. Woolf suffered a series of mental breakdowns throughout her life, and on March 28, 1941, she committed suicide.
