Night and Day (Harvest Book, Hb 263) by Virginia Woolf

Katherine Hilbery, torn between past and present, is a figure reflecting Woolfs own struggle with history. Both have illustrious literary ancestors: in Katherines case, her poet grandfather, and in Woolfs, her father Leslie Stephen, writer, philosopher, and editor. Both desire to break awayfrom the demands of the previous generation without disowning it altogether. Katherine must decide whether or not she loves the iconoclastic Ralph Denham; Woolf seeks a way of experimenting with the novel for that still allows her to express her affection for the literature of the past.This is the most traditional of Woolfs novels, yet even here we can see her beginning to break free; in this, her second novel, with its strange mixture of comedy and high seriousness, Woolf had already found her own characteristic voice.
