The turn of the last century was marked by an acute identity crisis resulting from decisive economical and socio-political changes. Consequently, the concept of self started to be represented in literature as fluctuating and fragile, from a subjective and limited narrative perspective. Crystallising in her novels the image of the frustrated individual who is never pleased with his/ her life, Virginia Woolf hailed the modern ascendancy of illusion over reality. (Autoarea)
