"Mrs. Woolf's new form is absolutely valid. It represents the successful attempt of a genius to reform for its own high pursposes a medium which had been distorted to suit lesser talents: and, as it happens, it is not so much a discovery of a new model as a reversion to an old and sanctified one....Virginia Woolf has revived the Platonic dialogue. True that her persons do not argue, but merely make counterassertions. Still the form is the same. And in this form Virginia Woolf comes to a curious and secret flowers. The sight of it is far beyond the deserts of most of us."
Rebecca West, Books, 11/01/1931Review:
"Culturally, despite its lofty traditionalism, THE WAVES suggests a pretty lampshade--a well-educated, lampshade, smart, original, advanced. Not an ordinary lampshade by any means, but one that has been a mode of self-expression....Most people, hearing that THE WAVES has a 'new form,' will lump it indiscriminately with the rest of 'modernist' fiction, and particularly with ULYSSES by James Joyce. No two books could better exemplify the difference between a desire for self-expression and the true creative urge."
Gerald Sykes, Nation, 12/16/1971
