Virginia Woolf & Katherine Mansfield

from The Hidden Writer: Diaries and the Creative Life by Alexandra Johnson, pp139-140:

"But even in 1917 the air was haunted by the disturbing beauty of their own discoveries as writers. Independently, each had invented a similar prose style, one that sought to map and mirror consciousness itself. Each was quarrying characters' inner lives - Virginia, the mind recording an ordinary day; Katherine, the anatomy of heartbreak."
