“The generally received opinion of Virginia Woolf is that, though a genius, she was from time to time simply ‘insane’ or ‘mad’. Roger Poole sets out in this book to question this opinion. . He traces the pattern of Virginia Woolf’s responses to her personal experience, suggesting the causes behind the various nervous collapses which she suffered and offering an explantion why they occurred. “
