Night And Day

The thrill of reading Virginia Woolf’s Night And Day is the feeling of looking into a whirlpool just as something utterly extraordinary and unexpected materializes for the first time. It is so for all her novels.

The language itself dazzles: vivid, evocative, poetic language, that challenges the best of James Joyce, with Woolf's gift for inner dialogue—the lies her characters relentlessly tell themselves—which in turn reveal them to us. In later works, it would become clear that Woolf’s process of distillation had proceeded even further; her ideas grown even leaner, sculpted by pauses into thin phrases of pure lyricism.

VIRGINIA WOOLF (1882-1941), one of the greatest authors of the twentieth century, transformed the art of fiction. The author of numerous novels and short stories, she was also an acknowledged master of the essay form, and an admired literary critic.
