A glimpse into the tortured existence of novelist Virgina Woolf. Includes rare archival photographs, film, and documents.
"Famous Authors" examines the men and women behind the words that brought them literary kudos.
In "Virginia Woolf," viewers learn how the esteemed author discovered poetry and prose as a youngster in her father's library and, ultimately, became a part of the famed Bloomsbury Group of writers and artists at Cambridge University. In her work, Woolf concentrated on the paradoxes of time and on human psychology. A major influence on today's scribes, she often dwelled not on plot mechanics or conventional action, but on the very things that made her characters tick -- namely emotion, environment and intellect. Woolf also penned many scathing essays exploring feminist themes, such as "A Room of One's Own."
