London-based illustrator Louise Pomeroy created the Doodle, which Google said was meant to reflect her "minimalist style". Woolf's fiction showed us that a person's inner life is as complex and strange as any plot. One of the foremost novelists of the 20th century, born in London in 1882, Woolf described in a 1921 diary entry how memories of family holidays and the surrounding landscape, especially the Godrevy Lighthouse, impacted her fiction in later years.
