The Waves

The Waves review ì eBook or Kindle ePUB F draws her characters from the inside revealing them through their thoughts and interior solilouies As their understanding of nature’s trials grows the chorus of narrative voices blends together in miraculous harmony remarking not only on the inevitable death. My full review as well as my other thoughts on reading can be found on my blogOne 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 from an omniscient viewpoint a portrait of the sea at different times of the day Even as Woolf explores the interiority of each character then she frames selfhood as neither stable nor unitary in addition to highlighting the artifice of her project

The Waves review ì eBook or Kindle ePUB Of individuals but on the eternal connection of everyone The novel that most epitomizes Virginia Woolf’s theories of fiction in the working form The Waves is an amazing book very much ahead of its time It is a poetic dreamscape visual experimental and thrilli. 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 part that I recognize or a part that I try to hide As a woman I am Jinny Susan and Rhoda and at the same time I am not But I am also Bernard Neville and Louis in their daily struggles despite sometimes feeling so foreign to them But I am all of them and they are me I do not know myself sometimes or how to measure and name and count out the grains that make me what I am We play on along and we live we are human in our frailty and our imperfections We live in our different scenarios but all in the same planet And I weep and smile with them for what they fought and are loved for for their fears and for their insecurities and their lovers The activity is endless And tomorrow it begins again tomorrow we make Saturday Some take train for France others ship for India Some will never come into this room again One may die tonight Another will beget a child From us every sort of building policy venture picture poem child factory will spring Life comes life goes we make life So you sayI that had for long forgotten to look inside myself now crave to know why I lost so many friends or was lost by them I am jealous of their friendship as I sometimes feel so solitary and desperate for that human connection that seems some days so far away I am a chameleon for I am all six at the same time Even Percival for I have died even having survived How curious one is changed by the addition even at a distance of a friend And I still feel the sorrow of those friends that I do not see any and so seem dead to me He is all the friends I lost their long gone memories and all the friends I gave up He is the isolation that I built for myself Was it pride or simply forgetfulness I grieve and want to yell for help Is there still time Could we meet for dinner and perhaps share all our happiness our misgivings and our sufferings I have had one moment of enormous peace This perhaps is happiness Now I am drawn back by pricking sensations by curiosity greed I am hungry and the irresistible desire to be myself I think of people to whom I could say things Louis Neville Susan Jinny and Rhoda With them I am many sided They retrieve me from darkness We shall meet tonight thank Heaven Thank Heaven I need not be aloneDespite all that I imagine I have in common with all six of them I feel a special connection with Bernard Why is that so Should it not have been with Susan a female with her family life and her children I that am also a mother But no it is Bernard that talks most to me Maybe that is because he is the storyteller of the group of friends what keeps them together Or perhaps he is one but is at the same time all six of them Light almost pierced the thin swift waves as they raced fan shaped over the beach The girl who had shaken her head and made all the jewels the topaz the auamarine the water coloured jewels with sparks of fire in them dance now bared her brows and with wide opened eyes drove a straight pathway over the waves I watch as the waves break close to my feet and I cannot devise how it feels to be confronted with such force and immensity to hear its deafening bellows as it crashes and almost kills me The waves fell withdrew and fell again like the thud of a great beast stamping And I feel I am always eavesdropping on Bernard Neville Louis Jinny Susan and Rhoda and I listen to them and journey with them from day to day I now can say that I met the grave and uiet Neville and understood his love for another part of himself The leaves now are thick in country lanes sheep cough in the damp fields but here in your room we are dry We talk privately I encountered the ambitious and insecure outsider Louis I repeat I am an average Englishman I am an average clerk yet I look at the little men at the next table to be sure that I do what they do I shared experiences with Susan her idyllic visions of family and rustic life At this hour this still early hour I am the field I am the barn I am the trees mine are the flocks of birds and the young hare who leaps at the last moment when I step almost on him Yes I have felt for Rhoda s fear of life her terror of always being lost and unheard Identity failed me We are nothing I said and fell I encountered the passionate Jinny and her volatility and her need to feel loved Now with a little jerk like a limpet broken from a rock I am broken off I fall with him I am carried off We yield to this slow flood We go in and out of this hesitating music And I know Bernard the eternal storyteller who failed in his first love but unites the friends not only with words Who am I thinking of Byron of course I am in some ways like Byron Perhaps a sip of Byron will help put me in the vein Let me read a page I am in love with their names and their destinies I am always with them and outside of it all but present in spirit Words and words and words how they gallop how they lash their long manes and tails but for some fault in me I cannot give myself to their backs I cannot fly with them scattering women and string bags There is some flaw in me some fatal hesitancy which if I pass it over turns to foam and falsity Yet it is incredible that I should not be a great poet I read each word Virginia Woolf s words and her lyricism makes me feel very luxurious inside She uses words that are metaphors for our everyday life such as waves and storms Words that are each and every one a treasure to our intellect and our souls She is a poet and reminds me of Fernando Pessoa and The Book of Disuiet She has led me through an ephemeral life or better six lives and I feel replete and indulged And I feel alive despite dying in the end And now I ask Who am I I have been talking of Bernard Neville Jinny Susan Rhoda and Louis Am I all of them Am I one and distinct I do not know Historic Ghosts and Ghost Hunters 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
