Virginia Woolf - Between the acts

The second novel I've read by Woolf. It's the last one she wrote before committing suicide and one of her shortest. Using a lot of Modernist techniques it also illustrates Woolf's feeling for language. With a short and economic style she can create moments of beautiful literature in this novel. The point of Between the Acts is this use of language. Forget the plot, read and reread the lines.
