The novelMoreVirginia Woolf is thought to be the foremost modernist writer of the twentieth century. Her most famous writings are reproduced in full in a single volume: Mrs Dalloway (1925), - A day in the life of a woman who is preparing a party. The novel stretches forwards and backwards in time as Clarissa wonders about the choices she has made. To the Lighthouse (1927) - a novel about loss and subjectivity. The Modern Library named it as No. 15 on its list of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century in 1998. It was also chosen by TIME magazine as one of the one hundred best English-language novels from 1923 to present in 2005. Orlando (1928) - a semi-biographical novel based in part on her bisexual lover Vita Sackville-West, it is considered to be Woolfs most accessible work. A Room of Ones Own (1929) - a long essay based on talks that Woolf gave at Cambridge. It is seen as a feminist text, with women writers needing to find a place in a tradition dominated by men.
