Virginia Woolf is an English writer whose novels, through their nonlinear approaches to narrative, exerted a major influence on the genre. While she is best known for her novels, especially Mrs. Dalloway (1925) and To the Lighthouse (1927), Woolf also wrote pioneering essays on artistic theory, literary history, women's writing, and the politics of power. The formation of these traditions was based on the ground, which harshly affects the value of life and relationships' relevance. These issues could be crudely described as a movement in the air for staking up women's level by redefining society's conventional norms. These norms were being continued from the ages without any direct phase of questioning and confrontation of opposition. It was based on the foundation of male dominance. The portrayal of characters in Virginia Woolf's novel is framed as wives, mothers, and daughters and the prospective bride's role often. Through these novels' characters, the writer has attempted to present her concerns regarding the domination of beliefs through the imposed mode of Victorian ideals.
