MelymbrosiaBook - 1982
Written between 1909 and 1912, three years before Virginia Woolf published her first book, this original novel reveals a far angrier, starker, more feminist and explicitly lesbian perspective than that of 'The Voyage Out', which it eventually became. Owing to strain and her fear of reprisals for authoring such an outspoken work, Woolf diminished the novel's once-sharp edge with each draft. Now, culled from over 1,000 manuscript pages over a 7-year period, the publication of Woolf's first attempt as a novelist is a landmark event for feminists, academics and fans alike.
