 Woolf, Virginia (1882-1941) (English Heritage). "The novelist and critic Virginia Woolf was one of the most influential writers of the 20th century. In addition to writing ground-breaking novels such as Mrs Dalloway (1925), To the Lighthouse (1927) and Orlando (1928), she was a prolific essayist and diarist, and a prominent figure in London’s literary society.
