review Kew Gardens

Read Kew Gardens 109 In 1927 at The Hogarth Press Virginia Woolf produced and published a limited edition of what was to become one of her best loved stories The book's jacket design and page illustrations were by her sister artist Vanessa Bell More than sixty years later The Hogarth Press at Chatto Windus has publi. Evanescent moments of being Doesn t one always think of the past in a garden with men and women lying under the trees Aren t they one s past all that remains of it those men and women those ghosts lying under the trees one s happiness one s reality Kew Gardens is the third short story by Virginia Woolf I have read by now and although I would be hard pressed to indicate my favourite one A Haunted House and In the Orchard the other ones it is easy to understand why Kew Gardens replete with various themes perspective shifts vibrant colours and pulsating sensations is one of her most beloved ones Its success also brought a certain change of fortune for the Woolfs and the Hogarth press Woolf meanders among fragments of conversation thoughts and observations of human as well as non human characters four duo s a young and a mature couple with children two ladies a young and an old man seeming son and father strolling along an oval flower bed sharing the garden with a snail a grasshopper a thrush a few butterflies and flowers and trees Woolf blends and blurs human and animal consciousness into a wondrous painting throbbing with life turning the eyes to small details and the different time focus and variegated experience of velocity in movement of all the living creatures coming together fortuitously in that garden unaware of each other s existence like living in another world The visual perceptions are intensified by the soundscape evoked be the myriad of wordless voices oscillating against the backdrop of war and the murmurs of the city the hustle and bustle of the traffic surrounding the Gardens in London What stayed with me from the effervesce of fleeting moments is the prominent and moving role Woolf gives to the little snail so stubborn determined and willing to make its way creeping through the flowerbed exploring and considering to overcome the obstacles it meets The reader gets to see the snail as well as the garden from the snail s perspective In the oval flower bed the snail whose shell had been stained red blue and yellow for the space of two minutes or so now appeared to be moving very slightly in its shell and next began to labour over the crumbs of loose earth which broke away and rolled down as it passed over them It appeared to have a definite goal in front of it differing in this respect from the singular high stepping angular green insect who attempted to cross in front of it and waited for a second with its antenn trembling as if in deliberation and then stepped off as rapidly and strangely in the opposite direction Brown cliffs with deep green lakes in the hollows flat blade like trees that waved from root to tip round boulders of grey stone vast crumpled surfaces of a thin crackling texture all these objects lay across the snail s progress between one stalk and another to his goal Before he had decided whether to circumvent the arched tent of a dead leaf or to breast it there came past the bed the feet of other human beings Reading the story for a second time after visiting Kew Gardens with my children in the July heat in 2019 it struck me that the story also set on a blazing hot day in July was published in 1919 so precisely 100 years ago When we were walking towards Kew alongside the river Thames approaching the Gardens coming from Ham house I was unaware Virginia Woolf had been living in Richmond from 1914 to 1924 On 26 November 1917 she wrote in her diary that she went to Kew with Leonard and saw a blazing bush as red as cherry blossom but intense frostily red also gulls rising and falling for pieces of meat their crowd waved aside suddenly by three very elegant grey cranes When moving there Kew Gardens soon became a favourite walking destination of hers often wandering there with her dogs as her doctors advised her to go for long walks Perhaps without knowing so we had been walking where she used to walk I like to imagine we did The story can be read here

Virginia Woolf ☆ 9 Read

Read Kew Gardens 109 Tic blooms while at their feet a determined snail makes its way slowly across a mountainous flower bed Elegantly produced a precise replica of that 1927 special edition with Vanessa Bell's jacket and decorative drawings this is a rare treat for Bloomsbury devotees and all who love beautiful book. WILLIAM Wordsworth loved Nature and proved his love through innumerable poems in his poetry Similarly Virginia Woolf too loved Nature and proved her love with alluring descriptive passages in her prose And mind you few writers can write the way she does You will feel like reading the first paragraph itself from the short story Kew Gardens again and again Yes it is that beautiful And I am not exaggerating Here is living proof of that From the oval shaped flower bed there rose perhaps a hundred stalks spreading into heart shaped or tongue shaped leaves half way up and unfurling at the tip red or blue or yellow petals marked with spots of colour raised upon the surface and from the red blue or yellow gloom of the throat emerged a straight bar rough with gold dust and slightly clubbed at the end The petals were voluminous enough to be stirred by the summer breeze and when they moved the red blue and yellow lights passed one over the other staining an inch of the brown earth beneath with a spot of the most intricate colour The light fell either upon the smooth grey back of a pebble or the shell of a snail with its brown circular veins or falling into a raindrop it expanded with such intensity of red blue and yellow the thin walls of water that one expected them to burst and disappear Instead the drop was left in a second silver grey once and the light now settled upon the flesh of a leaf revealing the branching thread of fibre beneath the surface and again it moved on and spread its illumination in the vast green spaces beneath the dome of the heart shaped and tongue shaped leaves Then the breeze stirred rather briskly overhead and the colour was flashed into the air above into the eyes of the men and women who walk in Kew Gardens in July What else have you noticed unusual about the first para That she loves delving with colours like an artist from his palette on canvas In fact the story written prior to Kew Gardens in Monday or Tuesday is called Blue Green and is only concerned with these colours but in an extremely imaginative way In the above mentioned extract she has used red blue yellow gold brown grey silver grey and green Of these she has used red blue and yellow in exactly the same order no less than four times However that is not the end of these trio of colours as they crop up again later In the oval flower bed the snail whose shell had been stained red blue and yellow for the space of two minutes or so now appeared to be moving very slightly in its shell and next began to labour over the crumbs of loose earth which broke away and rolled down as it passed over them Here is one extract that mentions lots of lovely colours Yellow and black pink and snow white shapes of all these colours men women and children were spotted for a second upon the horizon and then seeing the breadth of yellow that lay upon the grass they wavered and sought shade beneath the trees dissolving like drops of water in the yellow and green atmosphere staining it faintly with red and blue Mr Snail seems to be playing an important part in this story as he keeps popping up again and again In the short story written immediately after Kew Gardens called The Mark on the Wall the shell carrier will become the cynosure of all eyes As to how you will have to read the short story yourself in short the little machine stands in any convenient position by the head of the bed we will say on a neat mahogany stand I remember that expensive wood like mahogany Burmese teak and oak was used for making furniture during my schoolboy days in the 60s and early 70s Now chip board and even formica are used as wood has become rare and expensive Why Because of the cutting down of trees and destruction of entire forests at a rapid pace by the timber mafia especially here in Pakistan Some rural populations also encroach upon forest land thus destroying the habitats of animals birds and insects Even paper is being recycled for publishing books because of the rarity of trees The war being alluded to in Kew Gardens published in 1919 is World War I which lasted from 1914 to 1918 It is likely that Miss Woolf caught fragments of people s conversation during her visits to the gardens when the war was on and made them a part of her story Or maybe she was writing her story in a notebook while actually sitting there under the shade of a tree
