After five months reading this Diary , I think I will keep this voice inside of my head . Due to its extension , after so many pages , it seems that someone is talking with us . Something mediumnic :) Something similar to Proust , although the proustian narrator is even more impressive . Virginia would be the first to recognize it .

One word to the remarkable group of friends she had : Lytton Strachey ( Lytton ) , Edward Morgan Forster ( Morgan ) , Thomas Stearns Eliot ( Tom ) , John Maynard Keyn

This is a poignant read as it leads up to when Virginia left a note, walked to the river, and drowned herself.
