Sylvia Townsend Warner on Virginia Woolf

Diaries 26th
January 1942

‘At Boots Library the young woman put into my hands Virginia
Woolf’s last book [Between The Acts].  And I received an extraordinary impression
how light it was, how small, and frail. 
As though it was the premature-born child, and motherless, and
literally, the last light handful remaining of that tall and abundant
woman.  The feeling has haunted me all
day.’
