Product description

Review

"Woolf was an innovator who redfined the novel and pointed the way towards its future possibilities" (Jeanette Winterson)

"Virginia Woolf stands as the chief figure of modernism in England and must be included with Joyce and Proust in the realisation of experimental achievements that have completely broken with tradition" (New York Times)

"Virginia Woolf was one of the great innovators of that decade of literary Modernism, the 1920s. Novels such as Mrs Dalloway and To the Lighthouse showed how experimental writing could reshape our sense of ordinary life. Taking unremarkable materials - preparations for a genteel party, a day on a bourgeois family holiday - they trace the flow of associations and ideas that we call "consciousness"" (Guardian)

I have just read haunted house in this book

A haunted house is a story of couple who are now ghost.This ghostly couple move around their house searching for their hidden treasure.They remember the time they spend together in the house as they move and search the treasure.Finally at the end of the story they find the treasure in the house.

I think a haunted house is a beautiful story of love and death.Virginia Woolf cleverly keeps mentioning the word "here" and "it" and "treasure" and all you would keep guessing is what they mean.Woolf adds a ghost perspective to the story and comes out with the meaning of these words at the end of the story.

I was reading Woolf for the first time and i think the story is wanting me to read more of her.

Honestly, I read the story twice to get the essence of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Perfect Introduction 8 Mar. 2014
By Nicholas Trandahl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
An absolutely stunning collection. If I hadn't already started reading Virginia Woolf with 'To the Lighthouse', this would have been an excellent introduction to her writing style. I highly recommend it. I liked just about every little piece of fiction in here but my favorites are 'Kew Gardens'and 'Lappin and Lapinova'. 'Lappin and Lapinova' is the best short story that I've ever read. It rings so true to my own life and secret things that I share with my fiancee. Beautiful.
It's crazy that my favorite authors are Ernest Hemingway and Virginia Woolf. His writing style is so minimalist, hard and true where Woolf's so descriptive and meandering. You have to dig for the truth that she's discussing. To me, I see the two authors as two very different sides to the same coin that is literature.

Frequently overlooked short tales by one of the most important writers of the 20th century. These were collected and published posthumously by Leonard Woolf. Some V.W. had approved for publication. Some were still works in progress.

Awkward writing style yet very interesting and compelling.Her ideas see incomplete unless you take the time to try to understand what the author is really saying. She leaves clues to the meaning. Look for them

5.0 out of 5 stars Impressions and Instants 17 July 2011
By Terry Ferrell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Calling this collection "short stories" can be slightly misleading. I understand why a lot of people hate Woolf's writing, I really do get it. Reading Woolf reminds me of the first time I tasted beer and wine: I took a sip and then politely declined any further tastings for a while. After a while, I decided I was missing something, so I gave them both another try. After the 5th or maybe 500th sip, I realized I was beginning to enjoy the taste. Such as it was with Woolf. The first time I read her in college, I wanted to drop the class entirely and avoid that particular profession at all costs. Then, a couple of years ago I woke up one morning with this weird craving to read her again. I sat down with "To The Lighthouse" and literary fell in love. Since then, I have not been able to get enough.

Woolf's shorter pieces are more difficult to read than her longer pieces, in my humble opinion. As I mentioned before, coining her shorter work as "stories" is a bit misleading, especially if you are not familiar with her work. Don't get me wrong, there are some more traditional stories in this collection ("The Legacy" is one of my all time favorite short stories and worth the cover price alone); however, there are a lot of pieces that are more impressions and reflections on a single moment than what most people would consider an actual story. These impressionistic pieces are quite short (some less than two pages) but require more time to read than some of the longer ones. That might sound a bit like reading poetry and maybe it is. As your eyes read and reread the same lines, suddenly the bigger picture comes into clearer focus and you realize that Woolf has just transformed you into a flower gazing up out of your flowerbed at passerbyers in the park. Neat, huh? Okay, maybe it's not everyone's cup of tea, but if you are looking for a little challenge and up for a bit of mental exercise, this collection is certainly worth a second glance.
