Eloquent, profoundly melancholic, intelligent and deeply wise, sentimental and provocative yet always raw in terms of emotion, Virginia Woolf was a woman entirely ahead of her time. This is made with much love and respect in her memory.
I was so much overcome by her beauty that I really felt as if I’d suddenly got into the sea, and heard the mermaids fluting on their rocks.
Virginia Woolf, from a letter to Vanessa Bell dated 22 May 1917.118 notes
