Leonard Woolf : The Wise Virgins

Marie Woolf to Leonard Woolf (reader's son), 11 December 1913: 'I am now returning you the Manuscript [of The Wise Virgins] [...] the reading of which has given me more pain than evidently you intended. ... You thought fit to hold us [Woolf family] all up [...] to ridicule, contempt and pity. ... You have not convinced me one jot that the people at Rickstead [i.e. Putney, Woolf family home] are one bit less valuable to the common working of the Universe, than are the people at Bloomsbury [...] this style of writing is unworthy of you [...] If you publish the book as it stands, I feel there will be a serious break between us'.

Century: 1900-1945     Reader/Listener/Group: Marie Woolf      Manuscript: Unknown
