Theodore Dalrymple On Virginia Woolf

I've always had trouble digesting the works of the modernists, and it's heartening to discover a fellow spirit who holds an even deeper loathing. Dalrymple's conclusion : "Had Mrs. Woolf survived to our time, however, she would at least have had the satisfaction of observing that her cast of mind--shallow, dishonest, resentful, envious, snobbish, self-absorbed, trivial, philistine, and ultimately brutal--had triumphed among the elites of the Western world."
