From the Inside Flap
'Have I ever felt such wild misery as when talking to servants?
Partly caused by rage at our general ineptitude - we the governors - having
laden ourselves with such a burden, at having let grow on our shoulders
such a cancer, such a growth, such a disease as the poor are.'

Though Virginia Woolf was a socialist, and continued the Victorian habit of doing good to the poor, she was a raging snob who almost thought that the working classes were a different species.
Would have given this book five stars but I got bored with the literary criticism and lengthy passages about Virginia's state of mind.
