"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."
