Virginia Woolf has been commemorated with a Google Doodle on what would be her 136th birthday. Woolf, her husband Leonard and her sister, artist Vanessa Bell, would become core protagonists themselves in an intellectual circle known as the Bloomsbury Group; a collective of writers, artists, and thinkers who enjoyed their heyday during the first half of the 20th century.

These childhood memories inspired the settings and themes of English author Virginia Woolf's powerful stream-of-consciousness narratives, a unique literary style that established Woolf as one of modern feminism's most influential voices.

Woolf suffered from severe mental illness for the large part of her life and committed suicide by drowning in 1941. Like a musician, she liked to strike the mood of her books with a borrowed lyric on which she improvised infinite variations. "Created by London-based illustrator Louise Pomeroy, today's Doodle celebrates Woolf's minimalist style - her iconic profile surrounded by the falling autumn leaves". But it was her father's death in 1904 that plunged Woolf into depression.

Both of Virginia Woolf's parents had prominent social and artistic connections.

She published prolifically between the First and Second World Wars, with her final novel Between The Acts issued just after her death in 1941.

After producing the final manuscript for that posthumous work, Woolf fell into a depression, her diaries of the time hinted at a growing obsession with death.

Her body was found three weeks later. - A Room of One's OwnAbout her love for reading " I am reading six books at once, the only way of reading; since, as you will agree, one book is only a single unaccompanied note, and to get the full sound, one needs ten others at the same time".

'I would venture to guess that Anon, who wrote so many poems without signing them, was often a woman'. The quote is from Woolf's 1929 essay A Room of One's Own, which speaks about the importance of women and their lack to access to education in those times.

'If you do not tell the truth about yourself you can not tell it about other people'.
