In Memoriam: Virginia Woolf
Already the critics have been busy, defining her position as a representative of her age, expounding the philosophy implicit in her work. But, whether successful or unsuccessful, those efforts seem to miss the point. After all we do not read Virginia Woolf’s books for philosophy or period interest — many extremely bad books can provide us equally well with these — but because they delight us, because they are works of art. It is in the qualities that go to give her art its peculiar flavour that we must search for her significance.
