About this Recording

WOOLF, V.: Waves (The) (Abridged)

The Waves traces the lives of six friends from childhood to old age. It was written when Virginia Woolf was at the height of her experimental literary powers, and she allows each character to tell their own story, through powerful, poetic monologues. By listening to these voices struggling to impose order and meaning on their lives, we are drawn into a literary journey which stunningly reproduces the complex, confusing and contradictory nature of human experience. This is the only recording available of The Waves on CD. It is read with affection and skill by Frances Jeater.
