I have been enthralled with the work of Viriginia Woolf--a fan, if you will--since I first read her novel To The Lighthouse, in college . . . many years ago. Since then, I have collected nearly every work in her vast oeuvre, and have devoured the bits and pieces I could find on her, in libraries, bookstores, magazines, journals, collections, and websites. Unfortunately, I have found very little time to read all her works, in their entirety, but I have her on the In Between column of my to-be-read list and I do pick up a title now and again, when I have a little extra cash and a nearby bookstore happens to have something in stock that I don't currently own.
This little section, then, is my humble homage to Mrs. Woolf and her work. This list consists of all her works in print, with notations to those reviewed here, and those still on the top of the to-be-read list. I may have a few out of order, or some distinctions transposed... or there might be a title I am missing here; do forgive any oversight. I will correct mistakes as they are found, but still, this is just a little reference for those wondering where to start investigating this wonderful and prolific artist. Do read on, and I hope you find something you like.
(I have recently read this interesting early version of her first novel [The Voyage Out--see below], but have not yet reviewed it.)

And there have been various biographies of her published over the years, not to mention the... rather contentious fictious and historically inaccurate The Hours that has recently created such a fervor for Mrs. Woolf's novel Mrs. Dalloway. We can only hope that the interest thus sparked continues for many successful years.
