Virginia Woolf sometimes classified her novels as works of fact and of vision. Critics have also arranged them as pre-modern, modern, and post-modern fictions. Another way of looking at them is to consider the extent to which they are primarily about the Bloomsbury Group. The Voyage Out, Night and Day, Jacob’s Room and The Waves are all about the interrelations of the Bloomsbury Group, and in three of the four novels these relationships are connected with death. In Woolf’s first novel, mortality and the values of Bloomsbury are most starkly opposed.
