Overview

A woman gazes at a mark on a wall and ponders the vagaries of thought and opinion; a succession of couples is caught up with nostalgia for their past as they stroll among the vibrant flowers of Kew Gardens; a passenger on a train observes the woman opposite her, and constructs her life story; and silently, blissfully indifferent, a heron soars high above cities and towns, lakes and mountains, whilst below, life continues in all its mundanity. Monday or Tuesday - the only volume of short stories that Virginia Woolf published herself - presents a series of eight exquisite fictional reveries. As Woolf endeavours to free herself from the constraints of literary convention, she discovers a distinct and unique voice - a voice that, unlike any other, can give blue and green their expression in words. This collection of lyrical impressions is both deliberately fragmentary and startlingly experimental, and brilliantly hails her later masterpieces.
