The Diary of Virginia Woolf Vol IV 193-1935

By Hogarth Press 402pp £15

The fourth volume of this marvellous diary deals with a period of suffering and anxiety in Virginia Woolf’s life; though, as ever, she was able to abstract herself from the suffering caused by external events, to her creative and critical work, she was by no means so secure from the anxiety sometimes caused by her problems in the latter.
