Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful collection of Virginia Woolf's essays, essential for anyone interested in Woolf and her art but completely engaging for the casual reader as well. Woolf covers a great deal of ground here in her distinctive prose, engaging in matters artistic, political, social and personal (often, of course, questioning and subverting the distinctions among these categories). All of the essays are charged with her extraordinary intelligence and wit. Many of them are at moments playful, many poignant, and almost all of them surprising in the best possible ways. It's particularly interesting, for instance, to read Woolf's musings on the nascent art of cinema. She also writes very movingly about her father. Best of all, though, for me, are the extraordinary "On Being Ill" and the essays containing Woolf's observations of modern life ("Thunder at Wembley" and "Street Haunting: A London Adventure" particularly). Although each piece is a delight to read on its own, taken as a whole this volume shines a light into Woolf's values, concerns, methods, and personality--it's a valuable companion to her novels. And it contains a wonderfully insightful and companionable introduction and very helpful notes. Most highly recommended.
