From the last italicized section beginning “Now the sun had sunk” to the end of Virginia Woolf’s The Waves.
There you will find all you need to know about alienation, separation, consciousness, illusions, dreams, moments of being, connectedness, the preciousness of life detail, and Death “the foe”.
In this section of her greatest book, Woolf completely transcends time and the here-and-now to broad-perspective all and everything available to a thoughtful and sensitive mind.
