The String Quartet – Virginia Woolf


It’s all a matter of flats and hats and sea gulls, or so it seems to be for a hundred people sitting here well dressed, walled in, furred, replete. Not that I can boast, since I too sit passive on a gilt chair, only turning the earth above a buried memory, as we all do, for there are signs, if I’m not mistaken, that we’re all recalling something, furtively seeking something.


Another short story where Woolf explores the inner workings of the human psyche.

      1. I read her collected short fiction in 2016 and initially found it hard going and extremely demanding, and then suddenly it all fell into place. I was especially impressed with Kew Gardens, The Mark on the Wall and Monday or Tuesday. Enjoy!
