Erasure: "Lost Eden"


Lost Eden

From "In Search of Virginia Woolf’s Lost Eden in Cornwall," by Ratha Tep, New York Times, Feb 26 2018

Virginia wasn't always the radical. 

Before truth and beauty, her circle 


there was Adeline

who spent rugged gray mornings 

on the Great Western Railway, hugging tight

golden languid

deep blue distance, like her family. 

Long an admirer, not only of possibilities

but of such pleasure, 

I decided to go in search of her.
