Musica da camera per Virginia Woolf
Ciani, Maria Grazia
M.G. Ciani discusses the presence at a "subliminal level" of ancient Greek and Latin literature in the novels of Virginia Woolf. The author argues that classical texts, and in particular ancient myths, provide Woolf with an imaginary room of her own where the writer (just like one of her characters, Jacob, in the novel Jacob's Room) finds a protective space, hidden away from the anxiety and the horrors of the Second World War.
