She has you by the hand and forces you along her road, seeing the things she sees and as she sees them. She is never absent for a moment; nor does she attempt to conceal herself or to disguise her voice ... There are two reasons for this astonishing closeness and sense of personality — that she is herself the heroine of her own novels, and (if we may divide people into those who think and those who feel) that she is primarily the recorder of feelngs and not of thoughts.

Only connect: Charlotte Brontë and Virginia Woolf
Virginia Woolf, writing in the Times Literary Supplement, April 1916
