Becoming Virginia Woolf

Barbara Lounsberry

University Press of Florida

Chapter 2 probes Woolf’s Warboys Diary at age 17. It showcases Woolf, the early—and lifelong—experimenter (in both form and style). At 17, Woolf becomes self-consciously literary. In the Warboys Diary she tests pens; inks; calligraphy; diary formats; and expedition, newspaper, and gothic narratives. She articulates a Platonic mimetic theory of art and offers for the first time her aesthetic of changing light.

Keywords:   Warboys Diary, experimenter, aesthetic, Platonic mimetic theory, changing light, gothic narratives
