Sample text

Visitors often noticed pats of butter on the ceiling, evidence of the food fights that were common between them. This playfulness may have contributed to Woolf ’s participation in an event that became known as the Dreadnought Hoax. Adrian and his Cambridge friend Horace Cole enlisted Woolf ’s help to play a joke on the British Navy. Impersonating FROM A ROOM OF ONE’S OWN I n the essay, a beadle at “Oxbridge” first chases the main character away from a plot of grass on which she is organizing her thoughts — and then denies her admission to the university’s library because she is a woman.

I]t is fatal for anyone who writes to think of their sex. It is fatal to be a man or woman pure and simple; one must be woman-manly or man-womanly. — Virginia Woolf, A Room of One’s Own (1929) Let a man get up and say, “Behold, this is the truth,” and instantly I perceive a sandy cat filching a piece of fish in the background. Look, you have forgotten the cat, I say. — Virginia Woolf, The Waves (1931) A FRESH START During Woolf’s second breakdown and recovery, the Stephen children finalized their plans to leave 22 Hyde Park Gate and escape the Duckworths’ supervision.

On February 10, 1910, the “Abyssinian” entourage arrived in Weymouth, where the British Navy met them. With Adrian acting as a translator (using mispronounced phrases of Virgil and Homer), the six friends toured the ship. Upon their return, Horace leaked the prank to the newspapers. The navy was outraged to discover the deception. The Dreadnought’s flag commander was especially upset by the charade, as he was none other than the Stephens’ cousin William Fisher. The joke angered many people and led to discussions in Parliament about tightening security around warships.
