Dorothy Richardson

Dorothy Miller Richardson was a British author and journalist. Author of Pilgrimage, a sequence of 13 semi-autobiographical novels-though Richardson saw them as chapters of one work-she was one of the earliest modernist novelists to use stream of consciousness as a narrative technique. Richardson also emphasizes in Pilgrimage the importance and distinct nature of female experiences.

The title Pilgrimage alludes not only to "the journey of the artist ... to self-realization but, more practically, to the discovery of a unique creative form and expression".Richardson was born on 17 May 1873 in Abingdon, England.
