The beauty of the world, which is soon to perish, has two edges, one of laughter, one of anguish, cutting the heart asunder. – Virginia Woolf, A Room of One’s Own
Do pay a visit to Hearts Asunder before the month is out. It’s a 28-day blog that illustrates the Woolf quote above.
Another thing the Tumblr blog does is show how common readers are inspired by Woolf — and how they combine 21st-century pop culture and technology to share that inspiration.
These same common readers also connect Woolf to current events. For example, Hearts Asunder creator Brianna Goldberg posted a piece that links Woolf to this week’s devastating tsunami in Japan. On a lighter note, a blogger describes Woolf’s reaction to the news of the late Pope John Paul II’s forthcoming Facebook page.
The RSS feed of the most recent Hearts Asunder posts are at the top of the sidebar at the right. And to make sure you don’t miss anything, take a look at the clever archives display of the online collaborative writing project too.
The site is definitely worth the trip. Read more about the project concept to find out why.
