The essay analyses the style and content of Virginia Woolf’s essays. The genre is reinvented by Woolf, who is famous for writing fiction without plot, and who yet often uses fabula-based structures in her supposedly non-fictional writings. The essay examines several examples of Woolf’s technique, addressing her writings on reading, fiction-writing, biography, travel and the art of seeing the world.

Autorka analizuje styl i treść esejów Virginii Woolf. Gatunek eseistyczny został na nowo wymyślony przez Woolf, znanej z pisania prozy bezwątkowej, którą jednak obserwujemy sięgającej do struktur opartych na fabule w swoich rzekomo niefikcyjnych dziełach. W eseju omawiane są przykłady tej techniki, odnosząc się do jej prozy eseistycznej o czytaniu, pisaniu fikcji, biografii, podróżach i sztuce oglądania świata.
