Virginia Stephen c. 1912


One of the twentieth century’s most brilliant and innovative writers, Virginia Woolf (1882–1941) remains a subject of literary and cultural scholarship world wide. Her contribution to modernism, which includes the novels Mrs Dalloway (1925) and To the Lighthouse (1927), is impossible to overstate. The archive of her papers at the University of Sussex is known as the Monks House Papers, named after the Woolfs’ house at nearby Rodmell in East Sussex.
The papers at Sussex are those which Leonard Woolf made available to Virginia’s nephew Quentin Bell for the purpose of writing her official biography. They complement both the Leonard Woolf Archive at Sussex and the holdings of Virginia Woolf manuscripts in the New York Public Library and the British Library.
