Virginia Woolf’s voice

April 24th, 2012 | Posted by Ray Monk in Discussion

This is probably old news to many of you, but I only came across this recently. I hadn’t realised any recordings of Virginia Woolf’s voice survived. Is this what you imagined her to sound like? I imagined something a little less plummy, a little thinner & higher, more “arty.” I hadn’t imagined her to sound like an Edwardian grande dame.
