The Waves, by Virginia Woolf


To the Green Man – Woburn Square, London.

“My roots go down to the depths of the world,through earth dry brick, and damp earth, through veins of lead and silver. I am all fibre.”

“I am green as a yew tree in the shade of the hedge. My hair is made of leaves. I am rooted to the middle of the earth. My body is a stalk. I press the stalk.”

“the roots make a skeleton on the ground, with dead leaves heaped in the angles.”

Extracts from The Waves, Virginia Woolf.

First published by the Hogarth Press, 1931.
