A marvellous collection of essays, 'The Common Reader', originally conceived in 1921, and referred to by Virginia Woolf as her 'Reading Book', took four years to come to fruition and first appeared in 1925, after her first three novels : 'The Voyage Out', 'Night and Day' and 'Jacob's Room' had already been published.

Virginia Woolf was born in London, the daughter of the prominent literary critic Leslie Stephen. She never received a formal university education; her early education was obtained at home through her parents and governesses. After death of her father in 1904, her family moved to Bloomsbury, where they formed the nucleus of the Bloomsbury Group, a circle of philosophers, writers and artists.

Virginia Woolf makes me want to read more of the classics. She pointed out Conrad's "Youth," and I was blown away by it. She cuts straight to the bone with her analyses. She is not epigrammatic typically, but one of her insights I enjoyed was that Tolstoy's preoccupation is life and Dostoevsky's the soul. Reading to her seems to have been a cosmically more stimulating activity than even for the devoted bookworm. For ordinary mortals like me, I reap the benefits of her incredible enthusiasm by seeing her reveal things in writers like Austen, for example, not readily apparent. This to me seems like one of those must-have collections of literary essays for those who love the classics.

Reading the work of Virginia Woolf has always been a particular pleasure of mine, and having come to read her work later in my life than many people, I find it particularly satisfying to discover that there is so much more than just her major novels to discover and read with great pleasure, so much more of Ms. Woolf to look forward to reading! "The Common Reader", with its essays about great writers such as the master essayist, Montaigne, or the great nineteenth century female writers, Jane Austen, the Bronte's and George Eliot, are often provocative, always intelligent and frequently brilliant. "On Not Knowing Greek" and "How It Strikes a Contemporary" were also stand-outs for me. Virginia Woolf is one of the 20th Century's literary treasures, and I believe that "The Common Reader" should be read along with her other major works of fiction, for she is a very thought-provoking and skilled essayist and critic. Highly recommend.

ALL BUT ONE 4-STAR, 5 STARS.I read a similar book which is more contemporary and readable; with addition points, a bit 'fresher'. Oh, I was a writer, now 'retired'. Yes, with an Honorable Discharge.Reading Like a Writer: A Guide for People Who Love Books and for Those Who Want to Write Them (P.S.)
Want to write? Read. Start with these recommendations, then gobble up all writers. Never has such home work felt so good, do so good.

It is almost what I had expected to get; I would have like it a little bit more annoted, but I undestand it is what was the will of VW herself; not to be a "bas bleu", but let the reader make his opinion by himeself.

Excellent resource.

What a pleasure to receive a first edition and in great condition.

Hemingway said that readers overstate his importance and understate his significance. The first part cannot be said about Virginia Woolf, of course, because her importance is obvious. But I do not think that many appreciate her significance to modern writing-- the first true modern after Flaubert, imho.
Flaubert tried to take the writer out of his work, and to do that, attempted to construct sentences and paragraphs that would hypnotize the reader. But he did this without actually understanding-- or at least explaining-- how this was done. That he did not fully understand his own method can perhaps be seen form the fact that he agonized so much about his writings, trying this then trying that, until it "worked," without really understanding what "worked" meant.
Virginia Woolf desired the opposite-- to make it subjective, not, as she called it, "material." Indeed, it is intriguing to realize how little she wrote about Flaubert, who came before her, and who clearly was a genius at her level, or-- dare I say it?-- perhaps even a little above.
But she at long last said explicitly what she was doing, and what she felt what was needed to make fiction modern. Here it is, as explicit and as clear as a blade of surgery knife:
"Let us record the atoms as they fall upon the mind in the order in which they fall, let us trace the pattern, however disconnected and incoherent in appearance, which each sight or incidence scores upon the consciousness." (Virginia Woolf / "The common reader," First Series, page 150.)
In other words, VW is the first writer EVER who not only commanded the writer to make the reader the focus of his or her attention, but rather the READER'S BRAIN. VW is the first writer that said that THE PURPOSE OF THE SENTENCE IS TO SIMULATE REALITY-- both external and internal. She said it elegantly, but she said it clearly and explicitly, and in effect commanded the writer to do two things in his / her writing. To convey meanings and feelings, yes, but also to hypnotize the reader. And she even gave instructions on how to do the latter: Structure the sentence so that it bombards the reader's brain with the same sensations, in the same order, as physical reality and the writer's internal reality / feelings bombard the writer's brain.
This is as explicit as it comes. Hemingway did this, as did Conrad, and of course Flaubert-- but also Evelyn Waugh and Faulkner, and much later, poets such as John Ashbery and many others.
But VW said it first.
Whether you are a reader or a writer, buy this book and read it. If you are a reader, you'll understand better what modern writing is about. If you are a writer, well, your writing will improve immeasurably.
If there were six stars, I would give this book six.
