Description - Years,The by Virginia Woolf

As the Pargiters, a middle class London family move from the oppressive confines of the Victorian Home of the 1880s to the 'present day' of the 1930s, they are weighed down by the pressures of war, the social strictures of patriachy, capitalism and Empire, and the rise of Fascism. Engaging with a painful struggle between utopian hopefulness and crippled with despair, the novel is a powerful indictment of "Victorianism" and its values. 'The Years', written in 1937, was the most popular of Virginia Wolfe's novels during her lifetime.

Three years later, her first novel The Voyage Out was published, followed by Night and Day (1919) and Jacob's Room (1922). These first novels show the development of Virginia Woolf's distinctive and innovative narrative style. It was during this time that she and Leonard Woolf founded The Hogarth Press with the publication of the co-authored Two Stories in 1917, hand-printed in the dining room of their house in Surrey. etween 1925 and 1931 Virginia Woolf produced what are now regarded as her finest masterpieces, from Mrs Dalloway (1925) to the poetic and highly experimental novel The Waves (1931).
