    1. LOVE HER ESSAYS!!! Virginia Woolf published many essays throughout her lifetime. After her death, her husband, Leonard Woolf, collected all her published essays and put them into four uniform volumes, this being Volume One. In each of these essays, Mr. Woolf believes, have stood the test of time and none had fallen below the standard. Volumes 1 and 2 deal with literary and critical issues as well as integrity and precision. Volume 3 and 4 are biographical. Charlotte & Emily Bronte -- “Wuth [...]

    2. cea mai bună carte pe care am citit-o vreodată despre arta scrisului și arta lecturii. i-aș da 100 de steluțe. cel puțin.

    3. محاولات عبقرية من كاتبة و لا اروع. بهذه المحاولات و المقالات النقدية الرائعة صارت وولف من الكتاب المفضلين عندي.

    4. Era de așteptat să-mi placă aceasta carte Virginia Wolf simte, vede, investighează tot din lumea palpabilă. #justloveit

    5. am pus 4 citate din carte pe facebook în ultimele două zile și tot cosider că m-am abținut :)) sunt multe pasaje din care scriitorii și cititorii au de învățat, dar de ce să le mai scot eu din context în loc să intre ei în context?doar unul mai vreau să copiez, o glumiță apropo de contextul :în eseul Meșteșug, în care vorbește despre cum cuvintele, pentru că au așa de multe sensuri și asocieri, mai bine sunt folosite în literatură decât pentru utilitate. pentru utilita [...]

    6. Editor Andrew McNeillie has done an outstanding job compiling Woolf's essays, book reviews, and journal entries into three accessible and readable volumes. The table of contents are divided according to the year of publication, and each volume includes an introduction, "reading notes," "notes on the journal essays," and a bibliography.Woolf's book reviews are especially insightful and consice, if not as beautifully written as her other essays; simply scanning the titles in the table of contents [...]

    7. Very interesting in general. Expected more stuff about her aesthetics -- but nevermind. The stuff, when it does occur, is rather different from her more famous essays (eg Modern Fiction). In general, the writing is lively and easy to read, as well as perceptive. It's great regardless of whether you want to read it for leisure or work (though having read it because of the latter, I must say the former seems more appealing). There are far more reviews of biographies than I expected: these are clos [...]

    8. There were a couple of essays that I'd read elsewhere, but aside from that - blimey, Virginia. I don't know how you do it. You really were truly gifted in the art of writing. The 'Leaning Tower' essay of 1940 was particularly brilliant. Very impressed. It's nice to think that there are still a large percentage of her essays and non-fiction that I have still to read; it will be a sad day indeed when I finally reach the end of all of her work.

    9. It's always diverting to read Virginia Woolf's thoughts on anything really, but her words on feminism fill me with inspiration, enthusiasm and hopes for a better life in a society unbelievably imbued with sexism. God help us.

    10. I actually enjoyed these essays. throughout they gave a clear argument and also drew attention to significant historical literary contexts that may mean understanding her fiction to be easier. This has definitely restored my faith.
