Finally got around to reading this book. Like the River Ouse itself, this travelogue meanders through the British countryside allowing its dual narratives to unfold. The first and briefest one recounts Laing‘s own adventures in the river. The second supplies us with a variety of historical events that are linked to the river itself. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

A Room of One's Own | Virginia Woolf

When, however, one reads of a witch being ducked, of a woman possessed by devils, of a wise woman selling herbs, or even of a very remarkable man who had a mother, then I think we are on the track of a lost novelist, a suppressed poet, of some mute and inglorious Jane Austen, some Emily Bronte who dashed her brains out on the moor or mopped and mowed about the highways crazed with the torture that her gift had put her to.

A Room of One's Own | Virginia Woolf

Women have served all these centuries as looking glasses possessing the magic and delicious power of reflecting the figure of man at twice its natural size.

I can see why this isn‘t many peoples favourites Virginia Woolf but I still loved it. It felt much more Edwardian, even more than the voyage out which was published earlier, but I liked getting to spend time in Katherine and Mary‘s heads and the writing about power, money and freedom for women was multifaceted and gorgeous even if a bit bleak.

Check out this movie poster shared by VirginiaWoolftimeless on IG Excited that I am about to read about this firsthand...well maybe secondhand...I do not know how direct Virginia will be about this in her diary. Not surprisingly, though, her first post after their dinner was about unhappiness in her marriage.

To me, this is more exciting than any reality show. I am at the place where Virginia Woolf got up with Vita Sackville-West with whom she had a longterm affair. Ummm...why did she take so long to write in her daily diary again after their dinner on December 19th? Wonder what this first entry of January 1923 says?
