Reader's note

It is difficult to name an English novel which comes nearer to poetry than The Waves. (Perhaps, indeed, we only call it a novel because there are six distinct characters, nine chapters, and the medium is ostensibly prose.) Into this - her greatest achievement, as Stephen Spender called it - Virginia Woolf found it possible to pack everything she had experienced of the grandeur and futility of life. The Waves can be read for its intricate development of six personalities - six childhood friends - through the successive ages of man, for its overpowering suggestion of human isolation and personal solitude, or simply for an English which seems to ring from the soul with the force and rhythm of the psalms, with phrases as: 'The door opens and the tiger leaps'... or 'Death is woven in with the violets. Death and again death'.
