Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

"Woolf was an innovator who redfined the novel and pointed the way towards its future possibilities" (Jeanette Winterson)

"Virginia Woolf stands as the chief figure of modernism in England and must be included with Joyce and Proust in the realisation of experimental achievements that have completely broken with tradition" (New York Times)

"Virginia Woolf was one of the great innovators of that decade of literary Modernism, the 1920s. Novels such as Mrs Dalloway and To the Lighthouse showed how experimental writing could reshape our sense of ordinary life. Taking unremarkable materials - preparations for a genteel party, a day on a bourgeois family holiday - they trace the flow of associations and ideas that we call "consciousness"" (Guardian) --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

Très bon livre écrite par l'excellent mais néanmoins perturbé Virginia Woolf, je recommande !

Uplifting! 17 juillet 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
A friend tried to explain what Virginia Wolfe is all about ("She ties it all together in the end.") by letting me read the first short story in this book. What a lovely, lovely story it is! I cannot say more without giving it away, but I will only tell you that I re-read it several times to grab all of its nuances because she makes every word count. I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Impressions and Instants 18 juillet 2011
Par Terry Ferrell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Calling this collection "short stories" can be slightly misleading. I understand why a lot of people hate Woolf's writing, I really do get it. Reading Woolf reminds me of the first time I tasted beer and wine: I took a sip and then politely declined any further tastings for a while. After a while, I decided I was missing something, so I gave them both another try. After the 5th or maybe 500th sip, I realized I was beginning to enjoy the taste. Such as it was with Woolf. The first time I read her in college, I wanted to drop the class entirely and avoid that particular profession at all costs. Then, a couple of years ago I woke up one morning with this weird craving to read her again. I sat down with "To The Lighthouse" and literary fell in love. Since then, I have not been able to get enough.

Woolf's shorter pieces are more difficult to read than her longer pieces, in my humble opinion. As I mentioned before, coining her shorter work as "stories" is a bit misleading, especially if you are not familiar with her work. Don't get me wrong, there are some more traditional stories in this collection ("The Legacy" is one of my all time favorite short stories and worth the cover price alone); however, there are a lot of pieces that are more impressions and reflections on a single moment than what most people would consider an actual story. These impressionistic pieces are quite short (some less than two pages) but require more time to read than some of the longer ones. That might sound a bit like reading poetry and maybe it is. As your eyes read and reread the same lines, suddenly the bigger picture comes into clearer focus and you realize that Woolf has just transformed you into a flower gazing up out of your flowerbed at passerbyers in the park. Neat, huh? Okay, maybe it's not everyone's cup of tea, but if you are looking for a little challenge and up for a bit of mental exercise, this collection is certainly worth a second glance.

I found Woolf hard to read, often going from a last name to a first one to give the impression of two different people.
Her characters are bazaar with stories seem to ramble on to nowhere where men make all the decisions and women sit quietly.
The people who find her interesting are women who feel shut out of life because of their sex.
But there I was in a class of mainly women, run by a woman, in a learning center run by a woman.
That situation of women being second class citizens may have existed in England in the early 1900's, but it does not seem to exist today.
Virginia Wool wrote a ghost story? She did! 19 mai 2014
Par Paula Cappa Reviews - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I'm not a Woolf fan actually, but these short stories were interesting bites of her style. Generally I find her prose to be a bit obtuse and the stream of consciousness prose heavy. I get a bit weary of overhearing the characters' meandering thoughts and their fragmented complexities; and her long sentences tend to leave me mentally breathless. But one short story in this anthology, A Haunted House, was a lovely story about ghosts that I really enjoyed probably because it was more direct than her other works and short enough to "get it." And ghosts stories are especially interesting to me.
A Perfect Introduction 8 mars 2014
Par N. Trandahl - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
An absolutely stunning collection. If I hadn't already started reading Virginia Woolf with 'To the Lighthouse', this would have been an excellent introduction to her writing style. I highly recommend it. I liked just about every little piece of fiction in here but my favorites are 'Kew Gardens'and 'Lappin and Lapinova'. 'Lappin and Lapinova' is the best short story that I've ever read. It rings so true to my own life and secret things that I share with my fiancee. Beautiful.
It's crazy that my favorite authors are Ernest Hemingway and Virginia Woolf. His writing style is so minimalist, hard and true where Woolf's so descriptive and meandering. You have to dig for the truth that she's discussing. To me, I see the two authors as two very different sides to the same coin that is literature.
