Critical Anthology: Virginia Woolf and Music

Deadline: January 10, 2005

"Novels," she repeated. "Why do you write novels? You ought to write music."
Rachel Vinrace's advice to Terence Hewet shows that the relationship between
music and text was an important concern for Virginia Woolf beginning with her
very first novel. Her active interest in music influenced her writings in
significant ways throughout her career. In 1940, she was writing to Elizabeth
Trevelyan: "Its [sic] odd, for I'm not regularly musical, but I always think of
my books as music before I write them" (Letters, VI, 425).
