    1. Relectura febrero 2016El encanto del Londres moderno consiste en que no ha sido construido para durar, ha sido construido para pasar.Estos son seis poéticos ensayos sobre distintos aspectos de Londres, y con un estilo muy particular. Cuando lo leí pensé "esto es todo lo que necesité para entender por qué es difícil que Virginia Woolf le sea indiferente a alguien". Es, nada más ni nada menos, una pequeña muestra de la capacidad narrativa y observadora de la autora, dando como resultado un [...]


    2. Well each essay was a wonderful gem of prose poetry and caused me to think so many new thoughts, but I would expect nothing else. I recommend that if you're thinking about reading this, purchase the hard copy of the book; it's absolutely beautiful! They spent some time on it, you can tell, and here's why: These are 6 essays from a series on London that Woolf wrote for Good Housekeeping magazine in 1931-1932. The sixth essay had been missing for decades and was discovered in 2004 at the Universit [...]


    3. Opening lines: ''Whither, O splendid ship' the poet asked as he lay on the shore and watched the great sailing ship pass away on the horizon.'


    4. This is basically the most charming book about London - quite shallow but wonderful and witty - that I have ever read. And it is short, which is a plus. I feel very connected to Virginia Woolf, more through this book than through anything theoretical or intellectual she wrote - I guess because it now feels like we really could just hang out and think the same things about playgrounds on graveyards.


    5. The London Scene is a little book of six, short essays about London written by Virginia Woolf in the 1930s. Though I enjoyed some of the descriptions of London that showcase its timelessness, I found that Woolf's "stream of consciousness" style went over my head at times. I felt the same way when I read her book, Mrs. Dalloway, back when I was an English student. Hmm :/ I loved these quotes though:"London perpetually attracts, stimulates, gives me a play and a story and a poem, without any troub [...]


    6. Feia molt de temps que no llegia un llibre en català perquè em vaig cansar d’ ensopegar amb traduccions que abusaven d’ arcaismes i cultismes entorpint la lectura i convertint-la més en un suplici que no pas en un plaer. No obstant, amb la Virginia Woolf he fet una excepció i és que la Virginia ho mereix tot i més. Londres recull sis articles publicats a la revista Good Housekeeping entre 1931 i 1932 que retraten la ciutat. Es tracta d’ una autèntica delícia que es llegeix en una t [...]


    7. "Dipping and rising, moving and settling, the Commons remind one of a flock of birds settling on a stretch of plowed land. They never alight for more than a few minutes; some are always flying off, others are always settling again. And from the flock rises the gabbling, the cawing, the croaking of a flock of birds, disputing merrily and with occasional vivacity over some seed, worm, or buried grain."


    8. Bought this book while I was in London from Daunt Books where the book is published.I started reading it after came back to New York. And even though the book was written in a different age, it still reminded me my time spent in London.I especially like "Great Men's House" and "Abbeys and Cathedrals".


    9. Virginia Woolf’s fondness for London shone through every crevice as these six short essays take you through its winding streets. Here was ardent attention to detail as she extolled the virtues of her beloved while not shying away from some of its worser faults. There was a certain irreverence as she revealed that London has its seamy side, smelly and unpleasant, but she understood as any true lover does that the rough cannot exist without the smooth. Hers was the love of the faithful spouse wh [...]


    10. La edición es preciosa —contiene unas fotografías maravillosas—, pero todos sabemos que ese aspecto no debería ser tan relevante. El contenido no me fascinó, lo encontré muy simple. Las palabras de Viriginia Woolf que describieron los lugares de Londres no me transmitieron las emociones que debería haber sentido.


    11. Delightful! I love her (her writing, that is)! A perfect little glimpse into the character of this mesmerizing city.


    12. A set of six essays Woolf wrote for Good Housekeeping in 1931-32; subjects are the docks, Oxford Street - tacky, yet charming and fascinating - 'Great Men's Houses' - the homes of Carlyle and Keats, museumised; would be interesting to read when visiting these as they are now - 'Abbeys and Cathedrals', the House of Commons, and an account of a older middle-class party hostess.I read a subscription ebook of this illustrated reissue by Daunt, which in paper form looks like it would be gift / stocki [...]


    13. Livrinho curtinho, li em uma tarde! É o primeiro da Virginia Woolf que eu leio. Não é um livro de histórias, mas sim, um livro com 6 peças bem curtas sobre Londres. Como se fosse um passeio que a autora está fazendo, andando por Londres e nos contando sua impressão sobre o que ela está vendo e o que está acontecendo. O último conto é diferente, ao invés de falar de Londres, fala de Mrs. Crowe, uma típica londrina.Achei o livro bem interessante e Woolf é muito poética em suas descr [...]


    14. "Son miles las voces como estas que gritan en Oxford Street. Todas tensas, todas reales, todas provocadas en quienes hablan por la presión de ganarse la vida, de encontrar una cama, de mantenerse a flote en el alto, indiferente e implacable oleaje de la calle. Incluso el moralista, quien cabe suponer, dado que puede dedicar una tarde a soñar, que tiene dinero en el banco, incluso el moralista debe permitir que esa calle de relumbrón, bulliciosa y vulgar, nos recuerde que la vida es lucha, que [...]


    15. Virginia Woolf is a genius, and her "Portrait of a Londoner" essay was my very favorite. Please note that I would have given this a five-star review regardless because this book was a birthday gift from a friend who died two years ago. Every word made me miss her and homesick for the streets we used to walk together.


    16. I was advised to read Virginia Woolfe and while waiting for Mrs Dalloway I read this to get an idea of her writing style. I enjoyed these short glimpses of London as seen through her eyes and contrasted them with the London I knew in the early sixties. I am looking forward to Mrs Dalloway.


    17. Charming walking tour of London by one of the best of guides. I don't remember essays this good in my mother's Good Housekeeping. The one about Oxford Street is my favorite.


    18. This was a delightful book of short essays on London Life. They were originally commissioned by/published in the British edition of Good Housekeeping on a a bimonthly basis starting in December of 1931. Woolf has a gift for describing people and places and then using those descriptions as a jumping off for a discussion of the human condition and changing times. My favorite piece was "Oxford Street Tide," which uses the shopping area to talk about a growing shop keeper and business class, the pre [...]


    19. «Il fascino della Londra moderna risiede nel fatto di non essere costruita per durare, ma per scomparire.»Così Virginia Woolf descrive la Londra degli anni '30, in questo breve racconto, un saggio, quasi un diario di viaggio quotidiano, tra le familiari strade della capitale britannica.Scene di Londra (The London scene, 1931), pubblicato da Passigli Editori, è un piccolo libro e un prezioso gioiello dove la scrittrice inglese dichiara il suo amore per la propria città, una serie di brevi ca [...]


    20. An indispensable guide to an indispensable city by an indispensable writer.The traveler often goes to a city to "see the sights." And sometimes this is akin to a man looking for his keys without knowing their color or cut; he knows only that they are keys and he expects to recognize them as such when he sees them.Here, Woolf reveals the color and cut of London. It is impossible not to think of her description of Westminster Abbey - "Not an inch of its walls but speak, claim, illustrate" - and im [...]


    21. This sweet little volume is a compilation of Woolf's articles she produced for the British edition of Good Housekeeping. Originally titled "Six Articles on London Life." I loved knowing that these stories were produced in 1931 or earlier for publication starting in December 1931. Also a wonderful little nugget was that the last essay "Portrait of a Londoner' had been missing until 2004, when it was uncovered at the University of Sussex. Prior to that the essays had been published as a compilatio [...]


    22. A nice collection of essays, profound and tongue-in-cheek, on contemporary life in London. Altho the essays were written in the early 1930s, some describe a London almost like it is today (especially Oxford Street Tide!). Sadly, The Docks of London is no longer true but reading it one can so easily see the busyness and importance of the London docks when they were the centre of trade. This is the kind of book you can read again just for sheer enjoyment and appreciation of Woolf's skill in descri [...]


    23. Virginia Woolf writes in a rich, beautiful style and translates into these short chronicles her love and deep knowledge of London. Each one of the six chapters has its specific charm or novelty. From the London docks onwards, into land, west driven, this excursion shows us different aspects of town, including the famous (though popular) Oxford Street, its churches and cathedral, the House of Commons described with wit and my favorite one, the portrait of a Londoner.Maria Carmo,Lisbon 30 June 201 [...]


    24. Primera obra de Virginia Woolf que leo, y no tengo dudas del porqué es tan importante en la literatura británica. Un ojo critico, certero y detallista, reflejó Londres de una manera distinta a la que yo conocía, mostrando sus lados no tan placenteros, haciendo grandes referencias a la vida moderna, que no se sentían pesadas, ni forzadas. Un texto suave y fluido, que si me costó terminar fue por mala voluntad a la hora de sentarme a leer, no porque no pudiese conectar. Cinco de Cinco para V [...]


    25. "All'estremità più lontana si vedono le colline, nei cui boschi cantano gli uccelli, mentre un ermellino o un coniglio si arresta nel silenzio più profondo con la zampetta alzata, attento a qualcosa che si muove tra le foglie. Qui venivano Keats e Coleridge e Shakespeare, forse, per guardare il panorama di Londra. E qui, proprio in questo istante, il solito giovanotto siede su una panchina di ferro tenendo tra le braccia la solita ragazza".


    26. Virginia Woolf is a terrible snob - but what beautiful writing! My favourites among this collection of essays are "Abbeys and Cathedrals" (in which Woolf brings these buildings to life like no other writer) and "Portrait of a Londoner" (a perfect end to the collection as the previous five essays ostensibly concentrate on the concrete life of London - finishing with how the entirety of London's social life and culture can be contained inside a lady's drawing room). A lovely book.


    27. Six elegantly written, eminently readable puff pieces about London that the great writer tossed off for Good Housekeeping, of all things. They're a delight, and, given that they were written in the 1930s before the advent of the Second World War, they're also a fascinating time machine, an unintentionally moving glimpse of a world long since vanished in the golden mist between the wars.


    28. I really enjoy these essays that offer a glimpse into daily life in London in the 1930's. Woolf is an excellent writer and she helps the reader really visualize what she saw.


    29. No creo que nadie pueda describir de tal manera a Londres más que la mismísima Virginia Woolf! Excelente colección de ensayos, la disfrute mucho!!
