Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on Google+

In ziua de 28 martie, anul 1941, scriitoarea Virginia Woolf s-a sinucis. Si-a umplut buzunarele de la palton cu pietre si a pasit in raul Ouse, aflat in spatele casei sale, si nu a mai iesit la suprafata.

Depresia care a zdruncinat-o in tinerete a revenit la suprafata, iar Virginia nu a mai gasit alta cale de rezolvare decat moartea.


A plecat si a lasat in spate o opera nemuritoare, dar si o scrisoare de adio adresata sotului ei, Leonard.

Iata ultimele cuvinte ale Virginiei Woolf:



I feel certain I am going mad again. I feel we can’t go through another of those terrible times. And I shan’t recover this time. I begin to hear voices, and I can’t concentrate. So I am doing what seems the best thing to do. You have given me the greatest possible happiness. You have been in every way all that anyone could be.

I don’t think two people could have been happier till this terrible disease came. I can’t fight any longer. I know that I am spoiling your life, that without me you could work. And you will I know. You see I can’t even write this properly. I can’t read. What I want to say is I owe all the happiness of my life to you.

You have been entirely patient with me and incredibly good. I want to say that — everybody knows it. If anybody could have saved me it would have been you. Everything has gone from me but the certainty of your goodness. I can’t go on spoiling your life any longer.

I don’t think two people could have been happier than we have been.
