Virginia Woolf (1882 – 1941) was interested to the complex inner world of feeling and memory. The human personality for her is a continuous shift of impressions and emotions. This idea was influenced by Freud’s psychoanalysis: that considered a multi-layered self and the importance of dreams.
For Virginia Woolf the mind receives many impressions (fantastic, evanescent), from all sides they come and they look like at an incessant shower of atoms.
According Virginia a writer is a free man and not a slave and is very important that the artist base his work upon his own felling and not upon convention.
