Words fail me, Virginia Woolf

If you've never heard her speak, you should. Click here. It's quite unexpected, her voice, I mean. Very Victorian. Clearly Nicole Kidman did not study it in preparation... There is a rhythm to it that seems very much like her line. Giving yes, but playing it out too, enjoying the pull and tug of syntax and really hearing, hearing, the grittiness of the words. Perhaps that's what surprised me. I couldn't resist photoshopping this ubiquitous image.
