   schema:reviewBody ""A Passionate Apprentice comprises the first years of Virginia Woolf's journal - from 1897 to 1909. Beginning in early January, when Woolf was almost fifteen, the pages open at a time when she was slowly recovering from a period of madness following her mother's death in May 1895. Between this January and November 1904, Woolf would suffer the deaths of her half-sister and of her father, and survive a summer of madness and suicidal depression." "Behind the loss and confusion, however, and always near the surface of her writing is a constructive force at work - a powerful impulse towards health. It was an urge, through writing, to bring order and continuity out of chaos and this early chronicle represents the beginning of the future Virginia Woolf's apprenticeship as a novelist." "These pages show that rare instance when a writer of great importance leaves behind not only the actual documents of an apprenticeship, but also a biographical record of that momentous period as well. In Woolf's words, 'Here is a volume of fairly acute life (the first really lived year of my life).'"--BOOK JACKET." ;
