Woolf

Here is one of the reasons I like Woolf so much. For her depiction of reality, especially because it is a reality so dear to me: 
"Next day the light of the October morning was falling in dusty shafts through the uncurtained windows, and the hum of traffic rose from the street. London then was winding itself up again; the factory was astir; the machines were beginning.
