This community seems to be dead, but I'll give it a try anyway.

Has anyone read Susan Seller's book "Vanessa & Virginia"? Is it any good? Do you recommend it?

Hello,

I would just like to thank the person who posted this audio, I was aware that there were recording (they are mentioned regarding Virginia's early diaries in  Desalvo's essay "As 'Miss Jan says'"), but I did not know such audio was readily available! It would be amazing if anyone has any other sources they can share?

Thanks.

I know this has been asked before, but I can't find the answer at the moment, I'm hoping that you would be so kind to tell me.

May 18th I'm going to London and I would love to visit some places related to Virginia Woolf. 

Could you please help me into a direction? I've googled of course but don't seem to get what I need exactly. I'd rather ask the experts :-)

X-Posted (sorry)

Hello everyone,
After having read Mrs Dalloway a year ago (which was such a strong love/hate relationship that it took me a while to reattempt another of Woolf's works!) I recently convinced myself to read 'Orlando'. Like 'Mrs Dalloway' it was a love/hate thing (but mostly love!). I really hope that during the course of my university years (I start this September) I get to study her works, as I think (from the little I know) that they are novels that, in order to be fully appreciated, need to be discussed and thought about.
I was wondering if anyone knew/had any theories about what the goose at the end of 'Orlando' symbolises?
And as Shelmerdine...Collapse )
It's probably really obvious and I'm just being lazy, but I don't have time right now to reread it myself :( I read the footnotes which say how after some research the editor and her research buddies found a paper that "revealed quite unambiguously the meaning of the wild goose" but she then goes on NOT to say it XD
I was also wondering what the main overarching themes are in Virginia Woolf's works (identity? gender? etc, if any), and lastly, what more of her works (excepting the two I have already read) would you recommend to me?
Thank you x

I am working on a project, compiling information on 3rd Wave feminists/activists/artists who have been influenced by Virginia Woolf's essays "A Room of One's Own" and "Three Guineas" and am seeking email interviews with individuals who have been influenced by Woolf.

Individuals I'm interested in receiving information from would include:
-artists who have visually (through art) been moved to create based on Woolf's writings
-essayists
-activists who have used Woolf (quotations from her essays) in slogans, posters, rallies, meetings, vigils
-musicians who have included Woolf's literature in their lyrics, or as motivation for song-writing.

Please zip me an email (darthliz at gmail dot com) if you're interested or know someone who is, and I will email appropriate interview questions. I will possibly be turning this into a radio broadcast for a noncommercial radio station.

Thanks!
Liz

We were practicing for my aunts 50th birtday end of the month (some funny dances and stuff) over at niece's house when I browsed her bookshelves. I noticed she had a collector's box from Virginia Woolf with The Years, Jacob's room, Mrs. Dalloway, A room of one's own and Orlando.

I was surprised that she read Virginia Woolf but when I asked she told me it was only shelve filling. She thought it looked interesting, but when she sensed my enthousiasm, she gave them to me! I am so happy because these books are on my to read list and I've been meaning to buy them eventually.

I felt I would like to share the book review about Mrs.Dalloway I did for my english class with you people. :]

I got 15p (thats like,.... highscore :D ) on it, Im so happy!

note that english isnt my first language and my brainpowers are those of a 17 year old gal who talks like lorelai gilmore, laughes about Spongebob and whatnot.

please leave me your thoughts, comments, criticsm and stuff! :]


loves, ella
