Lappin and Lapinova

Lappin and Lapinova is a delightful story that will well repay the few minutes it takes to read it. Woolf in a few pages does a brilliant job of depicting how subtle things can have a great effect on relationships. She shows us how delicate love can sometimes be. One could read this story and say private myths are needed to support a marriage or you could say the near opposite that they hide from shallow participants the real nature of their relationships.
