In her highly influential critical A Room of Ones Own (), Virginial Woolf studied the cultural, economical and educational disabilities within the patriarchal system that prevent women from realising their creative potential.

ture was followed by centuries of writers before Virginia Woolf and other time-conscious modem authors broke from its confinements. Ac­ cording to the conventional view of time, the past, present, and future exist in an unending chain, along which man moves at an even pace, be­ cause the present moment, the "NOX-J," is moving steadily forward.

In Virginia Woolf’s case, the fact that she was a woman was a further aggravation. She belonged to a generation in which a woman had still to fight to be taken seriously as a writer. When she wrote A Room of One's Own, Virginia Woolf was a well-known author and a committed feminist.

She also had a tidy little inheritance of—wait for it— pounds per year (from her aunt, of course). Together, she and her husband, Leonard, ran The Hogarth Press, which published her own writing as well as works from writers they admired. Moments of Being consists of a collection of several previously unpublished writings by the renowned, and often controversial, British novelist, Virginia Woolf.

Written at various periods of her life and with various personal intentions, the writings essentially explore Woolf's relationship with her past - specifically, her belief that the past.

Virginia Woolf’s last diary entry, written the day before Virginia committed suicide, gives us a glimpse into her state of mind around the time of her death. What’s striking about the entry, though, isn’t what she says but what she doesn’t say.

First published in Considering how common illness is, how tremendous the spiritual change that it brings, how astonishing, when the lights of health go down, the undiscovered countries that are then disclosed, what wastes and deserts of the soul a slight attack of influenza brings to view, what precipices and lawns sprinkled with bright flowers a little rise of temperature.

In The Atlantic, essayist Leslie Jamison reflects on the words of Virginia Woolf that shaped her view of bodies in literature. Jamison recalls struggling to represent the physical aftermath of surgery, fearing that “writing about bodily experience [is] somehow the ultimate solipsism,” and ultimately finding solace in Woolf’s essay “On Being Ill.” Jamison connects Woolf’s essay.

Virginia Woolf’s writings seem to have one theme running rampant through all of them: female characters not enjoying life. In her novels, Jacob’s Room, Mrs. Dalloway and To the Lighthouse this can be seen very clearly.
