"Published in 1915, The Voyage Out, Woolf's first novel, clearly lays bare the poetic style that is the signature of her later fiction. Here she tells the story of Rachel Vinrace, a motherless young woman who embarks on a sea voyage to South America and falls in love with an aspiring writer. Theirs is a tale of doomed love, set against a chorus of other voices and other stories, as the narrative's focus shifts among its central and peripheral characters."--BOOK JACKET.

190 editions published between 1933 and 2011 in 15 languages and held by 2,500 libraries worldwide
"Virginia Woolf's extraordinary last novel, Between the Acts, was published in July 1941. In the weeks before she died in March that year, Woolf wrote that she planned to continue revising the book and that it was not ready for publication. Her husband prepared the work for publication after her death, and his revisions have become part of the text now widely read by students and scholars. Unlike most previous editions, the Cambridge edition returns to the final version of the novel as Woolf left it, examining the stages of composition and publication. Using the final typescript as a guide, this edition fully collates all variants and thus accounts for all the editorial decisions made by Leonard Woolf for the first published edition. With detailed explanatory notes, a chronology and an informative critical introduction, this volume will allow scholars to develop a fuller understanding of Woolf's last work"--
