Virginia Woolf, a renowned novelist from England, appeared in Google Doodle edition Thursday (25/1/2018). The reason why the technology company made its figure as Google Doodle on the main page is that Woolf is a 136th birthday.
Not only that, Woolf turned out to have a tragic life story that counted. Despite his compelling novel works, Woolf had to struggle with the depression he had experienced for years.
The look of a sad face on Woolf in Google Doodle may also reflect the depression in question.
Woolf was born in Kensington, Middlesex, England, breathed his last on March 28, 1941. In the latter days of his life, Woolf suffered severe depression during the period of World War II that took place in Europe.
Not disclosed why Woolf can be depressed heavily. When he committed suicide, he was wearing a heavy stone-filled coat.
He walked to the Ouse River in North Yorkshire and plunged into the river. It was not until three weeks later that Woolf’s body was found by the local police.
The Google doodle is inspired by one of the most famous portraits of the author of “Mrs. Dalloway” and “Orlando”. The design was in charge of the artist Louise Pomeroy, who accompanied her illustration of autumn leaves, a recurring figure in the work of the author.
Virginia Woolf was one of the most outstanding voices of twentieth-century literature. Novelist, short story writer, essayist, and correspondent, he embodied the values of the first literary vanguards and, through his writings, revealed as no one the feminine consciousness.
