Description

This title presents with introductions by Susan Hill and Steven Connor. "The Years" follows the lives of the Pargiters, a large middle-class London family, from an uncertain spring in 1880 to a party on a summer evening in the 1930s. We see them each endure and remember heart-break, loss, radical change and stifling conformity, marriage and regret. Written in 1937, this was the most popular of Virginia Woolf's novels during her lifetime, and is a powerful indictment of 'Victorianism' and its values.

Reviews

"Inspired throughout - a brilliant fantasia of all Time's problems, age and youth, change and permanence, truth and illusion" Times Literary Supplement "Lovely through The Waves was, The Years goes far beyond and beyond it-expressing Woolf's purpose in the novel more richly than it has ever been done before" New York Times Book Review
