Overview of the Case Study
Virginia Woolf (born as Virginia Stephen) had great interest in reading and writing and she expressed so as a child while growing up by reading most of the books in the library (Meyer, 2013, pp. 115-116). Growing up, she lost her mother, her stepsister and her father leading her to have extreme breakdowns and episodes of depression. Virginia also started developing severe manic issues including hallucination and suicidal attempt. Her sexual development also suffered as she was sexually abused by her two half-brothers (Meyer, 2013, pp. 115-116). Moreover, Virginia developed her sexual preference towards women and although she married Leonard Woolf she was never sexually responsive to him. Her breakdowns and insanity lapses kept escalading and despite Leonard's attempts to help Virginia relax, in 1941, she decided to commit suicide by drowning herself in the river (Meyer, 2013, pp. 115-116).
