Vita Sackville-West: Sweet And Childlike Nature

16 October 2018



The combination of that brilliant brain and fragile body is very loveable. She has a sweet and childlike nature, from which her intellect is completely separate. I have never known anyone who was so profoundly sensitive, and who makes less of a business of that sensitiveness.
Vita Sackville-West, describing Virginia Woolf, from a letter c. August 1928
