About this Recording

WOOLF, V.: Night and Day (Unabridged)

‘The strange thing about life’, proclaimed Virginia Woolf, ‘is that, though the nature of it must have been apparent to everyone for hundreds of years, no one has left an adequate account of it’. In her novels she set out to do just that. Night and Day is one of her earlier works, and already it moves the novel away from conventional plot lines, into poetic explorations of characters moods. It gives an intriguing picture of a group of young intellectuals in Edwardian London trying to discover the meaning of life—of art, literature, social reform, moral values, and above all, the mystery of love. Sophisticated, lyrical and nostalgic, Night and Day is a vivid memoir of a vanished world.
