A Complete Turnaround [Jul. 22nd, 2004|09:23 am]
Tony Grist
Ach- you have to be careful what you say. The gods are listening.

It's only days ago that I confessed, here in this blog, that I was bored with fiction. That must have angered Someone. Or amused them. Anyway, I now find I'm on a reading jag- with a mission to consume all the great 2Oth century novels I missed first time round. It's like a conversion experience.

And, maddest of all, I'm totally gone on Virginia Woolf. I want to read the Complete Works. And I've spent all my life despising and reviling her. Sorry, Virginia; I knew not what I did.

I can't explain it. I really can't. But we do have this statue of Pallas Athena in our bedroom....

True, but I feel such a fool.

Sprinkle or dunk?

Neither- more like white light on the Damascus road.

I get a picture in my mind of Virginia Woolf coming to you in a vision, rattling the stones in her pockets crying, "Poliphilo, Poliphilo, why persecutest thou me?"

Virginia Woolf as Jesus: well, why not? Except that Woolf is a lot more interesting....
