This stud attempts to follow the personal and artistic struggles of Bloomsbury novelists Virginia Woolf and E.M. Forster in Modern fiction which challenges conventional English society. Shared themes of isolation and connection are examined. A discussion of gender and sexuality establishes both the similarities and differences in approach between Forster's "problem" as a homosexual and Woolf's as a feminist. The thesis suggests that Maurice and Orlando serve as the creative ideal for each novelist.
