About the Author: Virginia Woolf

Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the Melymbrosia book, this is one of the most wanted Virginia Woolf author readers around the world.


Melymbrosia Virginia Woolf completed Melymbrosia in 1912 when she was thirty years old The story concerned the emotional and sexual awakening of a young Englishwoman traveling abroad, and bristled with social commentary on issues as varied as homosexuality, the suffrage movement, and colonialism She was warned by colleagues, however, that publishing an outspoken indictment of Britain could prove disastrous to her fledgling career as a novelist Moreover, the critical offensive from men would be especially harsh towards a woman author Woolf thus revised the novel extensively, omitting much of the political candor until, in 1915, the quieter book was published under the title The Voyage Out The original Melymbrosia offers a rare look into the formative mind of the modernist master who revolutionized twentieth century literature Here, one sees the young Virginia Woolf learning her craft.Like James Joyce s Stephen Hero, the original treatment of A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, or Ralph Ellison s posthumously published Juneteenth, Melymbrosia is a lost classic that owes its existence to the research of a devoted scholar, in this instance Louise DeSalvo, who spent seven years uncovering the original novel from Woolf s papers in the archives of the New York Public Library.

    Now, I don t usually write reviews of the books I read thought maybe I should start but after finishing Melymbrosia, I felt that I needed to mention it.This book is yet another reason why I love Virginia Woolf It remained in manuscript form for many years after Woolf s death, who chose, upon advice from those around her, to tone down certain themes she had included feminism, homosexuality, social critique, etc, and mould it into The Voyage Out 1915 , and has admirably been put back togeth Now, I don t usually write reviews of the books I read thought maybe I should start but after finishing Melymbrosia, I felt that I needed to mention it.This book is yet another reason why I love Virginia Woolf It remained in manuscript form for many years after Woolf s death, who chose, upon advice from those around her, to tone down certain themes she had included feminism, homosexuality, social critique, etc, and mould it into The Voyage Out 1915 , and has admirably been put back together by Woolf scholar Louise de Salvo It focuses on Rachel Vinrace, the heroine of sorts who bears striking similarities to the young Virginia, in terms of her awkwardness and feeling...

    In fact, this book title comes from the last short story preceded by the other four, that is, Phyllis and Rosamond, The Mysterious Case of Miss V., The Journal of Mistress Joan Martyn and A Dialogue upon Mount Pentelicus Each story, I think, should be a good orientation to those other lengthy Virginia Woolf s works However, I still found her writing amazing here and there For inst...

    Readers familiar with Virginia Woolf s first published novel, The Voyage Out, often note how peculiar the novel is with its inaccurate depictions of the southern hemisphere and puzzling interactions between characters Truly, there is something decidedly naive, almost fearful about The Voyage Out that makes it an uncomfortable read The recently published Melymbrosia, the result of years of scholarship by a Woolf scholar, provides an explanation for why The Voyage Out is the flawed read it is M Readers familiar with Virginia Woolf s first published novel, The Voyage Out, often note how peculiar the novel is with its inaccurate depictions of the southern hemisphere and puzzling interactions between characters Truly, there is something decidedly naive, almost fearful about The Voyage Out that makes it an uncomfortable read The recently published Melymbrosia, the result of years of scholarship by a Woolf scholar, provides an explanation for why The Voyage Out is the flawed read it is Melymbrosia is the novel Woolf had meant to publish but, for its unabashed critique of British society, was cautioned against publishing Heavily rewritten, the novel was later published as The Voyage Out Now, Woolf readers are are presented with the novel Woolf had originally intended and it is brilliant While certainly representative of Woolf s early pre stream of conscious narratives, Melymbrosia is a coming of age novel that takes a scathing look at what it meant to be a young wom...

    Reads like unpolished raw material for a novel Reader can see nascent preoccupation with drowning, and the multi layered obsession with love, in particular, Sapphic love Set on a ship, and later in a village somewhere in South America, with river trip.

    From all that I had heard of this books progressive treatment of sexuality, feminism, colonialism, etc I had expected a very different novel In the past I have admired Woolf s virtuoso skill, but found it hard to really love her staid closed off ness here Subtle she is, depressed obviously, and I can appreciate these qualities, but there is something in her writing that won t really let you in This story is a preliminary sketch of what would later be published as The Voyage Out It s roughne From all that I had heard of this books progressive treatment of sexuality, feminism, colonialism, etc I had expected a very different novel In the past I have admired Woolf s virtuoso skill, but found it hard to really love her staid closed off ness here Subtle she is, depressed obviously, and I can appreciate these qualities, but there is something in her writing that won t really let you in This story is a preliminary sketch of what would later be published as The Voyage ...

  7. Kristy says:

    This is a reconstructed version of Virginia Woolf s first novel using manuscripts from her archival collections woo hoo , which was ultimately reworked into the published The Voyage Out The plot of both books is pretty identical, and many scenes are duplicated, but the focus on politics and gender, the focus on sexuality, and most of all theexuberant and less interior character of Rachel make Melymbrosia a different book Louise Desalvo s archival r...

    One of the most honest portrayals of death and what happens to everyone else that I ve read I m not sure what the other ones on that list are so maybe I should say it is the most honest portrayal I ve read.

    Jeepers, I wish my first drafts of a novel turned out this good Granted, it is rough raw in places, and there are things that develop in later drafts that grow from knowledge and time, and so The Voyage Out grew from Melymbrosia as it should have I can see why VW s male friends cringed and insisted that she tone it down Here is where I must remind readers that it is a book of their time, not ours I read it from my size 6 s in the 21st century and thought,Really That s pretty tameM Jeepers, I wish my first drafts of a novel turned out this good Granted, it is rough raw in places, and there are things that develop in later drafts that grow from knowledge and time, and so The Voyage Out grew from Melymbrosia as it should have I can see why VW s male friends cringed and insisted that she tone it down Here is where I must remind readers that it is a book of their time, not ours I read it from my size 6 s in the 21st century and thought,Really That s pretty tameMaybe because I m so...

    Definitely not my favorite Woolf novel It s a quick well written read, and there are parts of it that I really liked, but I most likely won t return to it again This quote, however, I did enjoy as it reminded me a bit of my relationship with my own mother Then my mother, who cannot be idle even by fire light, winds her wool for her knitting, sitting in the great chair which stands by the cheek of the hearth When her wool gets tangled she strikes a great blow with the iron rod, a...
