Virginia Woolf--Essayist

My Favorite Virginia Woolf

While I agree with the author of the blog about the voice of the essays, I'm not certain that the essays have enough oomph to rank with the great essayists.  The book length essays--A Room of One's Own and Three Guineas are of a different calibre, but her ordinary run of things--I'd have to review yet again, but I don't recall being impressed with her perspicacity as a reviewer or her wisdom as an essayist. 

But at the time I read them, I was something of a snob.  When I reread these posts, I discover I'm still something of a snob--but to quote Monty Python regarding having been turned into a newt, "I'm getting better."
