The Writer’s Almanac posted the following tribute to Virginia Woolf, who died on this day in 1941, 71 years ago. All of the adjectives are true.
Virginia Woolf committed suicide on this day in 1941. A lively, witty, productive, creative person, whose life was overshadowed by her death. She wrote three of her best books in the space of just a few years in the 1920’s: Mrs. Dalloway (1925), To the Lighthouse (1927), and Orlando (1928).
