Vox Populi

A Public Sphere for Poetry, Nature, and Politics

Audio: Virginia Woolf — “Words Fail Me” (rare recording)

.

In this excerpt from a 1937 BBC radio broadcast, the only surviving recording of Virginia Woolf’s voice, the great author tells us that words “hate being useful; they hate making money; they hate being lectured about in public. In short, they hate anything that stamps them with one meaning or confines them to one attitude, for it is in their nature to change.”

The audio is accompanied by a slideshow of photographs of Virginia Woolf.
