Virginia Woolf was one of the most significant authors of the 20th century and a forerunner of classic modern literature. Leaving Victorian aesthetic and literary tradition behind, she became a key figure in female literature and is regarded as the founder of the “inner monologue”. This avantgarde technique of novel writing made Woolf’s famous works such as “Mrs Dalloway” and above all “The Waves” milestones of modern literature. With a guilloche of finely engraved waves, the black cast-resin body of the Writers Edition Virginia Woolf is reminiscent of Virginia Woolf’s most outstanding novel. The faceted ruby on the gold-plated clip symbolizes the brilliance of her work as a writer.The 18-carat gold nib with its fine engraving together with the gold-plated rings completes this exceptional pen in honor of an exceptional woman.
