I found some of the essays a bit short. Prefer her long ones. Also there is a great preoccupation with 'realism' -- that the Bloomsbury group had at that tme, so it wasn't that useful for me. The stuff on reader relations etc was very interesting, however, to understand how Woolf wanted her books to be understood, or how she thinks people should read.

“And somehow or other, the windows being open, and the book held so that it rested upon a background of escallonia hedges and distant blue, instead of being a book it seemed as if what I read was laid upon the landscape not printed, bound, or sewn up, but somehow the product of trees and fields and the hot summer sky, like the air which swam, on fine mornings, round the outline of things.” 3 likes
