If Virginia Woolf stood in front of the counter at Manhattan’s 114th Street Starbuck’s, what would she order?
A recent post on the Spectrum blog of the Columbia Daily Spectator speculates that her drink of choice would be a green tea cream frappuccino.
The post is said to be inspired by the new Tumblr titled Literary Starbucks, which does not include a Woolf sighting.
However, Woolf does show up in a humorous rant on the torturous process of writing a final paper published by the Spectator last spring.
Woolf herself mentions coffee in The Waves. Here’s the quote:
How much better is silence; the coffee cup, the table. How much better to sit by myself like the solitary sea-bird that opens its wings on the stake. Let me sit here for ever with bare things, this coffee cup, this knife, this fork, things in themselves, myself being myself.
