This paper reviews Virginia Woolf and some of the ideas in her books. The writer claims Woolf was a writer who was much concerned with the general plight of women in her era. The paper explores a number of issues, starting with women in society, sexuality in her era and family relationships. The writer then takes a closer look at Woolf herself, exploring the society she lived in and Woolf as a writer and mother. The paper concludes that Woolf herself achieves with great difficulty what she would have society make easier for other women to accomplish.

From the Paper:

"Woolf's personal life shows considerable divergence from the mores of her time, yet her writings also show that she was fully aware of the social restrictions faced by women in general. In her fiction, relationships between women serve as examples of how women can and do support one another in some cases, and undermine one another in others. Among these relationships are mother-daughter relationships which in part may derive from her own odd relationship with her mother and from her observation of other such relationships. The mother-daughter relationship is key in much of Woolf's fiction."
