«A newly discovered piece by the author of Mrs Dalloway, Carlyle's House and Other Sketches marks the first publication of one of Virginia Woolf's very early notebooks. Recently unearthed from a collection of private papers, it contains a series of seven striking sketches, each transcribed and edited by Dr David Bradshaw. From the cold formality of London town-houses with their rows of austere portraits, to the dull chaos of the academic's abode, and the eccentric spinster's Hampstead home, Virginia Woolf paints a series of portraits of everyday life, capturing character and setting in exquisite detail. Experimental in style, and heralding the later masterpieces Mrs Dalloway and To the Lighthouse, this early notebook is quintessential Woolf.»
À relire, doucement, pour découvrir des sentes cachées dans ces miettes de Woolf... Pas toutes accrocheuses mais très intéressantes...
