Having been less than enthusiastic about Auberon Waugh's diary entry giving his views on the topic of women going topless, it is only appropriate that I should offer a contrast. Here it is:
18 August 1995, Cap FerratAnd, to give an example of a great writer ignoring Josh's plagiarised dictum: 'When you've nothing to say, say nothing', how about this?
27 August 1897, GloucestershireCould we, perhaps, excuse this at the age of fifteen?
While talking about VW, as I shall probably do from time to time during the next few months, here is a quote from a character in Mrs Dalloway:
One cannot bring children into a world like this. One cannot perpetuate suffering, or increase the breed of these lustful animals, who have no lasting emotions, but only whims and vanities, eddying them now this way, now that.Does Woolf give a value judgement to the sentiment by putting it in the mouth of a schizophrenic?
