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.

It took her years but yes, she finally read it. It says so in the biography by Hermione Lee. Read this essay. It is very explanatory on what she thought of Proust and contains valuable information on how he indeed influenced her.
