Description - The London Scene by Virginia Woolf

The London Scene is a neglected collection of essays by one of England's most acclaimed writers. Virginia Woolf was born and had a home in London--a city in which she loved to walk and that she used as the backdrop for many of her works. In these essays, she records her thoughts and feelings as she explores the streets that (in common with so many of its other inhabitants) she both loved and loathed. The London Scene begins in the docks of the East End and travels against the current of the Thames westwards, following the flow of commerce from the unloading of goods at Tilbury to the crowds of shoppers on Oxford Street. Intrigued by the grand facades of the City and Westminster, Virginia Woolf admires the splendour of St. Paul's and the austerity of Westminster Abbey. She visits the spartan houses of literary men and then concludes her journey with a wry look at the House of Commons.
