Melymbrosia


More Description

Melymbrosia is Virginia Woolfs first book-length work of fiction, completed in 1912 and now available for the first time. Much like E. M. Forsters A Room with a View, Melymbrosia centers on the emotional and sexual awakening of a young British woman abroad. Bristling with social commentary on issues as varied as homosexuality, the suffrage movement, and colonialism, this debut novel offers a rare look into the formative mind of the modernist who revolutionized 20th-century literature. Woolfs first overt treatment of lesbianism in fiction, Melymbrosia also introduces the characters of Clarissa and Richard Dalloway from her well-known later work, Mrs. Dalloway.
