Mark, glad to provide the reminder. No self-respecting Woolf nut should miss this one :) Ellie, I'm so glad you found the post. I had planned to send you an email but obviously I forgot. I did like the photos especially the one of Ottoline. I always imagined her for some reason as an old and fat matronly lady, sort of like Queen Victoria in he later years, but she was actually quite pretty. Dorothy, definitely add this one to your list, I think you'll like it very much. Ted, how right you are. Even A Room of One's Own, her great feminist tract, is directed at middle class women. Thanks for the link. I've heard of that book but hadn't bothered to investigate. Now I will have to find a copy for myself!

Rats, lost my code. Sorry to keep posting: "Why we have them I can’t think" in the LRB

I knew there had been a book written about this recently, and I keep seeing reviews.

Woolf's relations with the working class are particularly interesting, both in her personal life and in her fiction. I think this is a particularly English problem that even she did not have the imagination to get through. I think it is one of the very few "weaknesses" in her fiction (I'm reading Jacob's Room right now and it pops up now and again.)

I will add this to the list of things by Woolf I'd like to read -- well, actually, I would like to read everything by her ...
