She pioneered the "stream of consciousness" narrative device in novels such as Mrs. Dalloway and To the Lighthouse and is also well-known for her collection of essays A Room of One's Own. Based on the lectures she gave to the women's colleges at the University of Cambridge, these essays focus on the history of women's  writing and the relationship between creativity and financial independence.
