On March 28, 1941, Virginia Woolf put on an overcoat, loaded the pockets with stones, and drowned herself in the river Ouse in Sussex. She was 59. Woolf suffered from what we now diagnose as bi-polar disorder. "Between the Acts," was her final novel, published after her death. Like her groundbreaking "Mrs. Dalloway," it takes place on a single day. Perhaps even more than her contemporary titans of modernism like Joyce, Eliot, whom she helped publish, Proust, Woolf was in tune with the changing consciousness of the age and dedicated to capturing it in her prose, which stretched the conventions of the novel. This edition includes an introduction and annotations, which give are helpful, as it's highly allusive.
