"Mrs. Woolf's new form is absolutely valid. It represents the successful attempt of a genius to reform for its own high pursposes a medium which had been distorted to suit lesser talents: and, as it happens, it is not so much a discovery of a new model as a reversion to an old and sanctified one....Virginia Woolf has revived the Platonic dialogue. True that her persons do not argue, but merely make counterassertions. Still the form is the same. And in this form Virginia Woolf comes to a curious and secret flowers. The sight of it is far beyond the deserts of most of us."Woolf, Virginia is the author of 'Waves', published 1950 under ISBN 9780156949606 and ISBN 0156949601.
