    I am writing to a rhythm and not to a plot', Virginia Woolf stated of her eighth novel, The Waves. Widely regarded as one of her greatest and most original works, it conveys the rhythms of life in synchrony with the cycle of nature and the passage of time. Six children - Bernard, Susan, Rhoda, Neville, Jinny and Louis - meet in a garden close to the sea, their voices sounding over the constant echo of the waves that roll back and forth from the shore. The subsequent continuity of these six main characters, as they develop from childhood to maturity and follow different passions and ambitions, is interspersed with interludes from the timeless and unifying chorus of nature. In pure stream-of-consciousness style, Woolf presents a cross-section of multiple yet parallel lives, each marked by the disintegrating force of a mutual tragedy. The Waves is her searching exploration of individual and collective identity, and the observations and emotions of life, from the simplicity and surging optimism of youth to the vacancy and despair of middle-age.

    O avtorju

    -Virginia Woolf-

    Virginia Woolf, ena najpomembnejših predstavnic evropskega modernizma, ki poleg Jamesa Joycea velja za začetnico literarnega postopka toka zavesti pa tudi za klasično predstavnico feminističnega pisanja, se je rodila v Londonu kot tretja izmed štirih otrok zgodovinarja in biografa Leslieja Stephena in njegove žene Julie. Družino, v kateri so živeli še štirje otroci iz prvih zakonov obeh staršev, sta hudo prizadeli smrt Julie Stephen leta 1895, ko je bilo Virginii trinajst let, in starejše sestre leta 1897. Po materini smrti je Virginia doživela prvi duševni zlom, sledila pa mu je dolgotrajna duševna bolezen, ki se ji je občasno povračala vse življenje. Skupaj s sestro in bratoma je po očetovi smrti živela v londonski četrti Bloomsbury, kjer so skupaj s študijskimi kolegi obeh bratov zasnovali vplivno gibanje bloomsburyjevcev. Leta 1912 se je poročila s publicistom in pisateljem Leonardom Woolfom in leta 1915 objavila prvi roman, Izlet na odprto morje. Od leta 1917 sta z možem vodila založbo The Hogarth Press. Na začetku druge svetovne vojne se je, v stalnem strahu pred nemškimi bombardiranji in novicami o novih izgubah, 28. marca 1941 utopila v reki Ouse v bližini svojega doma v Rodmellu v Sussexu. ​

    Virginia Woolf velja za prenoviteljico angleškega romana. V njenih knjigah je bolj kot zunanja resničnost pomembna notranja, psihološka resničnost posamičnih likov, ki se razkriva skozi tok njihove zavesti in vpliva na čas in prostor romana, da prav tako postaneta subjektivna, deformirana, odstopajoča od časa in prostora »zunanjega sveta«, in bolj kot zgodba lirični način pripovedovanja, preprežen s simbolnimi pomeni in subtilnimi literarnimi aluzijami in navezavami. Subjektivizirana čas in prostor omogočata prehajanje iz ene zavesti v drugo in menjavanje pripovednih perspektiv. Njeni najbolj znani romani so Jakobova soba (1922), Gospa Dalloway (1925), K svetilniku (1927), Orlando (1928), Valovi (1931), Leta (1937) in Med dejanji (postumno 1941).
