Psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Dr. Gail Saltz invites Martin Hipsky of Ohio Wesleyan University , to discuss Woolf’s life and work. Woolf’s novels were innovative in their attention to interior life and in their feminism. Woolf herself was as complicated as any character she created. She was sexually abused when she was young, had several nervous breakdowns, probably suffered from bipolar disorder and committed suicide at the age of 59. She also created some of the most seminal works in 20th century literature.
