Virginia Woolf

The Waves

One of Woolf’s most experimental novels, The Waves presents six characters in monologue — from morning until night, from childhood into old age — against a background of the sea. The result is a glorious chorus of voices that exists not to remark on the passing of events but to celebrate the connection between its various individual parts.

Quotes

    Jasmine Lawsonhas quotedlast year
    The sun had not yet risen. The sea was indistinguishable from the sky, except that the sea was slightly creased as if a cloth had wrinkles in it. Gradually as the sky whitened a dark line lay on the horizon dividing the sea from the sky and the grey cloth became barred with thick strokes moving, one after another, beneath the surface, following each other, pursuing each other, perpetually.
    İrem Güneyhas quoted4 years ago
    Pouring down the walls of my mind, running together, the day falls copious, resplendent.
    Anna Avdeevahas quoted6 years ago
    Yet I think it is likely that the best are made in solitude.
