Title: The Diary of Virginia Woolf: Five Volumes ...
Publisher: Hogarth Press 1977-1984, London
Publication Date: 1977
Edition: First Printings of the First UK Edition.
Near Fine to Fine copies in Very Good plus to Fine dust jackets; four of the volumes have slight fading to the spines. The appealing thing about Woolf's diaries is that they enable you to walk right into her consciousness, to see the down-to-earth woman inside the rarefied writer. It's as if she were to say ''ask me anything you like.'' She confides her fears and her petty animosities, as well as her more exalted feelings. Some readers may prefer the Virginia Woolf of the diaries to the author of ''The Waves,'' or perhaps even of ''Mrs. Dalloway'' and ''To the Lighthouse.'' Here there is none of what E. M. Forster called ''an inspired breathlessness'' or ''a beautiful droning and gasping.'' In her diary, Woolf is neither aloof nor airy, but disarmingly human, replete with ordinary flaws. For all her originality, she is also a type, a fine example of an upper-class Englishwoman dressed in her prejudices, which she wore like a tweed suit. Bookseller Inventory # 25593
