Sorry, I don’t care how wonderful it is in the French, in English it’s turgid and dull.
Book fail: I only got to P45.
Wow, I had no idea. I’ve not really read any Woolf so far, but I’d this is anything to go by I’ll be teaching much more. Second wave feminism being expounded 30 years before the first wave got going. And such writing.
(PS I’ve only read the first essay so far, may come back to Three Guineas later)
I was surprised how much I liked this book. I was expecting it to be a fairly turgid, Victorian morality tale. But I found it a very sensitive and warm novel.Yes it was all about guilt, hypocrisy and sin. And yes, it described a Puritan society that seemed to be enslaved to Old Testament legalism. But who are we to judge, who didn’t create a new society from nothing. A recommend.
