2TEXT AND TRADITIONAnswer to Question 1(A)Virginia Woolf’s short story has gone through a lot of criticism due to its misconduct andlack of cultural values in her stories. She had put an end to the traditional methods of storywriting and became a modern writer. All her work showed some sense of sensuality and differenttypes of thoughts that keep coming in the mind of people from time to time. She is oftenconsidered as a lesbian writer because of the lesbian based theme in her short stories (Bowlby,2016). These types of stories were not accepted at that time and even today. This has putVirginia Woolf’s short stories under various types of criticism for degrading the values andculture of the society. She was a feminist writer that focused on the power of women in thesociety. In her books, show criticized the culture of the society for treating women badly andmaking them deprived of all things. She criticized the culture that lead to deprivation ofwomen’s emotions and responses. In her books, she stated the condition of the society in theFirst World War led to deprivation in cultures and value. At that time women did not held muchimportance in the society and they were the one that suffers during wars. This is due to culturalvalues in the society. Most of her books and stories are related to feminism and the condition ofwomen due to lack in culture. Her stories supported women, which the society did not do at thattime. Women were not accepted in the society and in any work at that time. Moreover, they werethe one that suffered the most during war and any other situation (Squier, 2017).
