Dorothy Richardson

b. 1872, Abingdon, Berkshire, England; d. 1957, Beckenham, Kent, England

Dorothy Richardson was an English novelist and innovator of stream-of-consciousness writing. Her major work, Pilgrimage, was published individually in a series of sequences, or chapters, from 1915 until 1938. Exploring the lived psychology of the female gender, Pilgrimage tells the story of one woman, Miriam Henderson, through the expression of her “interior monologue,” or the felt experiences and thoughts of her protagonist.
