“The Death of the Moth” Woolf December 7, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — hvandolsen @ 7:00 pm

At first it may seem that Woolf’s “The Death of the Moth” is simply a description of her witnessing a moth fly around her room and it’s eventual death. However, Woolf is effective at using the anecdote of the moth to express her feelings on life and death. Woolf begins her argument by describing the simplicity and delicacy of a moth that some how promotes a sort of pity and sadness. Woolf claims that she cannot stop watching the moth’s futile attempts at reviving it’s flight.
