Central catacomb


“But when the self speaks to the self, who is speaking? ‚Äî the entombed soul, the spirit driven in, in, in to the central catacomb; the self that took the veil and left the world ‚Äî a coward perhaps, yet somehow beautiful, as it flits with its lantern restlessly up and down the dark corridors.”

A quote from Virginia Woolf’s short story An Unwritten Novel.

Woolf suffered from debilitating depression throughout her life and eventually committed suicide at the age of 58, but not before revolutionising modernist literature and leaving a huge legacy of both fiction and non-fiction works.
