Is anyone else here passionate about the novels of Virginia Woolf? I have read nearly everything she ever wrote, and as a former college lit major, wrote quite a few papers on her work. I think that her novel "The Waves" is one of the purest and most beautiful novels in the English language, both in content, in form, wording, imagery, and sentence structure.
Anybody care to discuss her work?
I remember reading her novel "Orlando" ages ago, I think I was around ten years old or something. Even though I did not understand everything in the book, I loved it. Purely. And it made a deep impression on me. I am not actually sure I want to read that book ever again, because i am sort of afraid I got the whole storyline wrong in my head, and that the book not really is like the one I read as a child.
She is one of my favorites. I've read msot everything by her, and I really love Jacob's Room.
She was just such a genius writer. And I'm glad I'm not the only person who feels this way, cuz around here (where I live), all my friends don't like her much....shame shame.
