Description

Discover the most popular of Woolf’s books during her lifetime

– a powerful portrait of a family coping with changes wrought by the new

twentieth century.

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.
