Hi all. I joined this site because I was trying to help a friend figure out a literary term/technique that Virginia Woolf used. Google spit out a result ("Discuss those who paint with words and the works that they create. What's the literary term?! . by Countess. Today 01:42 PM Go to last post ...") but I can't seem to find it on here AT ALL because the only link Google gave me was the generic forum link for here. My friend's description was "woolf created stories like paintings: she used shadow, light, colors, technique in them like an artist does to create certain effects." Does anyone know what this term is? She can't remember what it's called, and I have no idea what she's referring to. So if anyone can help, that'd be terrific.
