Abstract:

"Virginia Woolf completed Melymbrosia in 1912 when she was thirty years old. The story concerned the emotional and sexual awakening of a young English woman traveling abroad, and bristled with social commentary on issues as varied as homosexuality, the suffrage movement, and colonialism. Warned by colleagues that publishing an outspoken indictment of Britain could prove disastrous to her fledgling career, Woolf revised the novel extensively, omitting much of the political candor. In 1915, the quieter book was published as Woolf's first novel under the title The Voyage Out."--Jacket.
