Abstract: Throughout her writing career, Virginia Woolf sought to recreate in her fiction her perception of reality . . . The inner life seemed to her to be characterized by long periods of semi-conscious existence punctuated by sudden interludes when, for a brief time, the consciousness was sharpened and the essence of life was revealed . . . She referred to these most precious and evanescent interludes as "moments of being."
