    One has to laugh before being happy, because otherwise one risks to die before having laughed.

    "Je crains [...] que l'me ne se vide ces passe-temps vains, et que le fin du fin ne soit la fin des fins." (Edmond Rostand, Cyrano de Bergerac, Acte III, Scne VII)

    Yes, I'm even trying to steer the conversation towards that of Woolf - did you notice that? Also I have Wodehouse burning a hole in my sofa arm absolutely demanding to be read. I've never read a Wodehouse. The tension is unbearable. I hope it lasts...

    How are you enjoying To the Lighthouse? I really liked Mrs. Dalloway, but when I tried reading The Waves it became unbearable - I had to give it up! But I am more optimistic about her other novels. I actually have To the Lighthouse on my bookshelf, "demanding to be read" ;-)

    As for themes, there's cruelty from nature and love, country life, doom, erotolepsy...
