Excerpt: ...needed this evening and go home and I will come back and work to-morrow and go home to-morrow night, and if by that time you find I can have a room by myself, perhaps I will come permanently."

Mrs Dalloway in Bond Street

Adeline Virginia Woolf (/wʊlf/;[3] née Stephen; 25 January 1882 – 28 March 1941) was an English writer, who is considered one of the most important modernist 20th-century authors and a pioneer in the use of stream of consciousness as a narrative device.
