Adeline Virginia Woolf was an English writer and one of the foremost modernists of the twentieth century. The String Quartet is a collection of experimental short prose pieces.The author goes beyond simply trying to render the experience of music in stream-of-consciousness terms; she renders the narrator’s state of mind while listening. Along the way, she raises questions about the nature of that experience. Is it aesthetic and recreational, or is it simply a means of escapism? In the end, she answers in favor of the latter. The experience of art has become a respite from the disappointments and alienation of contemporary life. This story helps you to collect your thoughts with the help of the magnificent plot.
