Virginia Woolf took her lifestyles in March 1941. Her worry that she may now not be capable of stay meaningfully, in line with her beliefs and specific imaginative and prescient of existence, compelled her to settle on loss of life as salvation. To her, dying was once no longer an finishing. The spirit especially needed to be preserved. Like her personality Septimus Warren Smith, lower than the stress of psychological disease, she threw her existence away with a view to defend that which was once so much sacred to her – existence and integrity of the soul.
Probably it sort of feels to be a contradiction - to smash one’s lifestyles which will reserve it. there are various such paradoxes in Virginia Woolf’s pondering, as a result of her emotional nature and to her unique manner of lifestyles, time, and house that shapes fact itself. during this imaginative and prescient of lifestyles as an everlasting method, the thoughts of time and area, invented through guy, don't have any that means, simply because truth exists open air of them. via passing his temporal existence guy perspectives all issues with regards to himself and his lifestyles in the world. however it is quite tricky to squeeze one’s lifestyles between start and dying, for guy completely organises his event into relatively relative formulations of interweaving time and house. And fact, as considered by way of Virginia Woolf, contains the entire expanse of area and time, and each dwelling shape brings its ancient and prehistoric earlier into the ever-flowing circulate of lifestyles. the current second isn't remoted, since it is stuffed with very previous second, and is consistently within the means of swap. Time flows with the movement, having neither starting nor finish. truth is basically undying and spaceless, since it includes all house and all time.
Believing within the everlasting approach, Virginia Woolf additionally demanded a revolution in literary method and subject material. She reconsidered character, language, plot and constitution in a brand new mild. character used to be regularly within the strategy of taking form and will no longer be comprehensive via exterior descriptions. Language needed to express the sentiments and perceptions of other degrees of understanding all on the similar second, revealing the subconscious in addition to the awake issues. Plot needed to be eradicated, due to the fact that motion held no curiosity. the single factor that mattered was once the interior lifestyles. packed with the “moments of being”, it printed to somebody the trend in the back of the woolly curtain of lifestyles and during it, hooked up him to the opposite humans and the outer world.
