Summary:

Who, if anyone, was responsible when Virginia Woolf wandered across the water-meadows and threw herself into the river Ouse? What drove her over the brink when so many others were able to survive those difficult years? By examining the various strains which led to her ending her life - the true nature of her marriage, her complex relationship with Vita Sackville-West, the pangs of sexual insecurity, and the lack of self-esteem - and by tracing the impact of each important figure in her life on both her genius and her pathology, psychoanalyst Alma H.Bond illustrates how these influences coalesced to bring Woolf's life to a logical ending.
