By the way was I very absurd about children last night? I was rather shocked that you should think I didn’t care for Nessa’s. They are such an immense source of pleasure to me. But I see what it is: I’m always angry with myself for not having forced Leonard to take the risk in spite of doctors; he was afraid for me and wouldn’t; but if I’d had rather more self-control no doubt it would have been all right. That’s I suppose why I don’t talk of Nessa’s children—it’s true I never do—whom I adore.
—  Virginia Woolf to Ethel Sands (9 February 1927)
The signs as letters between Virginia Woolf and Vita Sackville-West
  • Aries:"Do you really love me? Much? Passionately not reasonably?"
  • Taurus:"But I do adore you — every part of you from heel to hair. Never will you shake me off, try as you may."
  • Gemini:"I always have such need to merely talk to you. Even when I have nothing to talk about — with you I just seem to go right ahead and sort of invent it."
  • Cancer:"I wish I didn’t love you so much. No I don’t though; that’s not true. I am glad I do. I don’t know what to say to you except that it tore the heart out of my body saying goodbye to you."
  • Leo:"Yes, I am glad you miss me, even if it is ‘damned unpleasant.'"
  • Virgo:"You have no idea how stand-offish I can be with people I don’t love. I have brought it to a fine art. But you have broken down my defenses. And I really don’t resent it."
  • Libra:"The flowers have come and are adorable, dusky, tortured, passionate like you—"
  • Scorpio:"I wish you could live in my brain for a week. It is washed with the most violent waves of emotion."
  • Sagittarius:"You may have discovered entire new countries in your own soul."
  • Capricorn:"I find I get more and more disagreeably solitary; In fact I foresee the day when I shall have gone too far into myself that there will no longer be anything to be seen of me at all. Will you, please, remember to pull away the coverings from time to time?"
  • Aquarius:"I like the unreality of your mind; the whole thing is very splendid and voluptuous and absurd."
  • Pisces:"I suppose it is good for the soul to be hurt and perplexed perpetually. I know at least that I miss you damnably: that is a good fixed star."

Coffee and feminist literary criticism. I’m currently reading Elaine Showalter’s response to A Room of One’s Own. After reading Toril Moi’s response to Elaine Showalter’s criticism of Woolf I knew I just had to read it on my own in order to form my own opinion on the subject.
