Death Days: July 20, 2015
On July 20, 1937, Woolf learned of her nephew Julian Bell’s death in Spain.
No, no, I will not go back to those days. The only thing was a kind of comfort of being there with Nessa Duncan, Quentin & Angelica, & losing completely the isolation, the spectator’s attitude in being wanted; & spontaneous. Then we came down here last Thursday; & the pressure being removed, one lived; but without much of a future. That’s one of the specific qualities of this death -- how it brings close the immense vacancy, & our short little run into inanity.
