Adeline Virginia Woolf (1882-1941) was an English writer and literary critic, the leading figure of the modernist literature of the first half of the twentieth century. She also was part of a group of English intellectuals, writers, and artists, graduates of Cambridge, called the Bloomsbury group. Set in Edwardian London, "Night and Day" tells the stories of two women, Katharine Hilbery and Mary Datchet. While the right activist Mary struggles to find love, Katharine must choose between marrying a small-minded poet William Rodney, and her attraction to the passionate lawyer Ralph Denham. This book is Virginia Woolf's second novel, a love story and a social comedy that questions the traditions and a woman's role in the society.
