    For the unprepared reader the first fifty pages can be as baffling as an unknown code But once the code is cracked, the whole experiment has a brilliant simplicity Imagine this a biography of you and your five best friends From early childhood to death Told not within the usual matrix of bald accountable facts, social landmarks of achievement and failure But through a linguistic transposition of the ebb and flow, the forging and eroding, of the waves of our inner life Those secret and unspoken moments known only to ourselves when we feel at our most isolated or connected, our most transfigured, lost or unknowable The narrative a fluid continuum where all six of you are continually merging and separating in a fellowship and divorce of feeling The six of you ultimately becoming one voice endeavouring to give shape to this one shared life So The Waves is the biography of six characters, all of whom speak for the other five as much as for themselves But it s a new kind of biography A biography of sensibility A kind of archaeology excavating identity entirely from what s buried and sacrosanct Epiphanies, private moments of triumph and failure or what Virginia Woolf called moments of being...

    a great recommendation from a friend Seems like it could be life changing, or possibly a little sad or maybe both The hand written inscription in the copy I found used was worth the entire purchase anyway, read it 2 14 84Martin I m sure you know that you ve been on my mind a great deal over the last few days I ve struggled for words to capture my own grief at your mom s death, to express my appreciation for yours, and perhaps, to offer some solace by explaining to you how strong an impression she made on me during the few months that I knew her.I haven t yet decided which of my memories of Elma will be my favorite her stealing my blackberry pie, fingering my brand new Perry Ellis coat as a potential rug, beating the pants off me at Shanghia Rummy, or just gazing out the window at the beach But I do know that she was a deeply loving and strong woman, who had the grace and breadth of vision to raise a lovely, creative, and infinitely diverse family and who was able to make me feel welcome and cared for within minutes of entering her home.Your mom s spirituality also affected me powefully In f...

    The Waves is an absolute masterpiece it s an incredible novel that flows beautifully with torrents of majestic prose I see nothing We may sink and settle on the waves The sea will drum in my ears The white petals will be darkened with sea water They will float for a moment and then sink Rolling over the waves will shoulder me under Everything falls in a tremendous shower, dissolving me This is creative genius at its absolute finest within fiction I felt like I was floating, awash in words, dreams and ideas It s a profound exploration of the human soul and I lack the words to describe it as eloquently as it deserves The very first chapter is an absolute feat of writing I felt like I watching the scene from above, peering into the lives of these characters And the constant wave imagery is perfect It cements the emotions, complexity and intricacies of human experience in a very imaginative way I wish I could capture the essence of it in a review, but I think this is one that really needs to be read in order to be understood The novel traces the development of six friends from childhood all the way ...

    The sun rose Its rays fell in sharp wedges inside the room Whatever the light touched became dowered with a fanatical existence A plate was like a white lake A knife looked like a dagger of ice Suddenly my copy of The Waves became alive as the clouds on the cover page started floating in resplendent movements and the water of the ocean moved swiftly over the edges of several dog eared pages carrying along thousands of words written upon them, to a world they rightfully belongs to Drifting in the cradle of nature, under the roof of blue black sky, amidst beauty they could equate with Merging into the ubiquitous elements of the cosmos, they were finally home The wavesfinally broke out.I m stunned I m in a dire need of phrases Right phrases Perfect phrases Phrases that can describe a smidgen of splendor this book contain But I m inadequate Immensely inadequate I wish I were a poet or a writer I m neither and I have no one to blame Yet I m vacillating between being angry and being envious Angry with Envious Of I better avoid questions and neg...

    My full review, as well as my other thoughts on reading, can be found on my blog.One of the greatest works of literary modernism, The Waves follows the inner lives of six friends from birth to death the novel rejects conventional notions of plot in the interest of tracking the ebb and flow of consciousness over the course of a lifetime Woolf alternates between the main characters perspectives in each of the novel s nine sections, focusing upon the ways in which the friends perception of each other and their environment shifts over time, and she breaks the sections up with poetic interludes that sketch ...

    The sun fell in sharp wedges inside the room Whatever the light touched became dowered with a fanatical existence A plate was like a white lake A knife looked like a dagger of ice Suddenly tumblers revealed themselves upheld by streaks of light As I turn the pages of The Waves, Virginia Woolf talks to me, to my heart, my spirit and my soul, like I could not have imagined Such splendor and beauty come to me through her words, and I feel like singing with her She sings life, a life that begins and goes on and on So I keep reading and hope to get lost, to blend with the pages whose sounds are just like the very waves that come and go inexorably The sun had not yet risen The sea was indistinguishable from the sky, except that the sea was slightly creased as if a cloth had wrinkles in it Gradually as the sky whitened a dark line lay on the horizon dividing the sea from the sky and the grey cloth became barred with thick strokes moving, one after another, beneath the surface, following each other, pursuing each other, perpetually If only I could write, if only I were a poet If only I knew who I was, but I feel the six of them as if they shared my soul Yes, there are six, and I am only one But each talks to a part of me A p...

    I am in a fever Awareness is heightened Words have purple shadows Sentences gleam yellow greenParagraphs are lined in reddish goldEverything shimmers, sharp as waves in sunlight The normal is abolishedVoices roll towards me, one upon another, declaim their truth and roll away again, one upon another, the arc of each voice different, the rhythm the same Bernard, Susan, Louis, Bernard Rhoda, Neville, Jinny, Bernard Louis, Neville, Susan, BernardSusan, Louis, Neville, Bernard,Bernard, Bernard, Bernard, Bernard.Six names, six faces, surging toward the light Six names, six faces, falling away, each in turn, Until only one remains Bernard.And Bernard says, Sit with me, and I do And he describes the voices, describes them all And he drops phrases one upon another Measures out life, drop by drop, I strike the table with a spoon If I could measure things with compasses I would, but since my measure is a phrase, I make phrases.And meantime, women shuffle past the window And the clock ticks on And Bernard makes his phrases I conceive myself called upon to provide, some winter s night, a meaning for all my observations, a line that runs from one to anothera summing up that completesBut soliloquies in back streets soon pall.I need an audience That is my downfall.Bernard punctuates with repetitions, a symphony with its concord and its discord, and its tunes on top and its complicated bass b...

    Hi Hi Is it you Yes, I am You look different Should I have been same Mmm I don t know But you have my color In setting auburn, yes But it still looks content on your skin that color like a sheet of fine, wet porcelain covering a tired, antique statue And you look dazed, as if an army of nebulous thoughts have held you captive Is it so evident Yes I met a few people Bernard, Susan, Louis Jinny, Neville and Rhoda I know Do you remember them They never left me Even after so many years Time has shuffled what was detached from me what was within me, was always out of its reach So it all begun from where I stand And it walked with you till where I stand In the same form In what form you say I don t know But it feels like my mind and body dissolved its hinges and fused into that of those six people who combed through life with the precision of a surgeon and the flamboyance of an artist They let their vial overflow and got injected into your veins, sprucing your limp persona to rise like a volcanic sapling, splashing your vision with hues, bunched and scattered You became them and you permitted it How could I not Were you not present when we picked abandoned pebbles of insecurities on the way and held them hidden in our clothes of opaque vanity Were you not a witness to the swinging that erupted from our trees of longing, long enough to allow crystallization with birches of affection in our hair Would you deny the scene where we luxuriated a...

    654 The Waves, Virginia WoolfThe Waves is a 1931 novel by Virginia Woolf It is considered her most experimental work, and consists of soliloquies spoken by the book s six characters Bernard, Susan, Rhoda, Neville, Jinny, and Louis Also important is Percival, the seventh character, though readers never hear him speak in his own voice The soliloquies that span the characters lives are broken up by nine brief third person interludes detailing a coastal scene at varying stages in a day from sunrise to sunset As the six characters or voices speak, Woolf explores concepts of individuality, self and community Each character is distinct, yet together they compose as Ida Klitgard has put it a gestalt about a silent...
