  • ""Publicada en 1937, "Los años" fue la novela más popular de Virginia Woolf durante su vida, quizá debido a su factura clásica, decididamente más convencional que su obra anterior. Los Pargiter, una típica familia burguesa, recorren en estas páginas un periodo de tiempo comprendido entre los últimos estertores de la era victoriana y los primeros años treinta. Y en el seno de su hogar se dramatizan las tensiones históricas, sociales e ideológicas de esa época de transición y niebla, cuando un mundo y una idea de la civilización se desmoronaban para dar paso a un tiempo nuevo y lleno de incertidumbre. La guerra, la estructura patriarcal, el capitalismo, el Imperio o el auge del fascismo son algunas de al sombras que se proyectan en las paredes de la casa de esta familia inglesa, emparentada, podría decirse, con los Bunddenbrook, la familia alemana creada por Thomas Mann en su novela homónima." --Contratapa."@es
  • ""How should we read the writings of Virginia Woolf? This is not so much a question of interpretation as of practice. How are we to read this writer for whom reading is an activity that requires almost the same talents and energies as the activity of writing itself? For Woolf responds to the question, 'How should one read a book?', as a person of immense, virtuosic skill and experience in both activities. She understands the reader to be the 'fellow-worker and accomplice' (E5 573) of the writer. The 'quickest way to understand [. . .] what a novelist is doing is not to read', she suggests, 'but to write; to make your own experiment with the dangers and difficulties of words' (E5 574); and 'the time to read poetry', she recognises, is 'when we are almost able to write it' (E5 577). Not only has Woolf left a richly rewarding oeuvre, but she has also left ample documentation of her meticulous processes of composition and of her detailed involvement in the production and publishing of many of her works, all of which her active and conscientious reader will wish to negotiate. If we are going to read Woolf creatively and critically, ifwe are to follow our own instincts, use our own reason and come to our own conclusions, as she herself advises, we need to read her works in a form that provides us with the fullest means possible to exercise these powers, one that gives us as much unmediated access as possible to the record of these processes. This Cambridge edition of Woolf's writings consequently aims to provide readers and scholars, Woolf's fellow-workers and accomplices, with an extensively researched, fully explicated and collated text"--"
  • "As the Pargiters, a middle-class London family, move from the oppressive confines of the Victorian home of the 1880s to the 'present day' of the 1930s, they are weighed down by the pressures of war, the social strictures of patriarchy, capitalism and Empire, and the rise of Fascism. Engaging with a painful struggle between utopian hopefulness and crippled with despair, the novel is a powerful indictment of 'Victorianism' and its values. "The Years", written in 1937, was the most popular of Virginia Woolf's novels during her lifetime."

  • ""The Years is perhaps Virginia Woolf's most politically and historically embedded novel. It covers a period of intense social change from the 1880s to the 1930s, making direct reference to suffrage, Irish Home Rule, the First World War and anti-semitism. The novel's composition history is unusually complex; the text changed radically from its inception in 1931 to its publication in 1937. This edition provides readers with a fully collated and annotated text. It includes a substantial introduction that charts the composition process, a detailed chronology and full annotation of all historical, cultural and topographical references. All variants from extant galley and page proofs, as well as editions of the novel produced in Woolf's lifetime, are included, and reveal the significant and crucial changes Woolf made even in the months before publication"--"
  • "The life and history of the Partiger family is explored in snapshots of a single day from the 1880s through the 1930s. The final novel to be published by Virginia Woolf in her lifetime, The Years was initially structured as part of a novel-essay intended to resolve some of the loose ends from A Room of One's Own, but was separated from the non-fiction portions when the structure of a novel-essay proved to be problematic. The essay portions of the manuscript were later published as Three Guineas.

  • "A tour de force written near the end of Virginia Woolf's brilliant career, The Years narrates fifty years in the life of the Pargiter family. A novel about the passage of time and the small moments that comprise everyday experience, The Years is a deeply moving and profound work by one of the truly original writers of the twentieth century. Less experimental than her earlier novels, The Years was Woolf's most popular work during her own lifetime."@en
