"...I"m sitting in an old silk petticoat at the moment with a hole in it, and the top part of another dress with a hole in it, and the wind is blowing through me, and I"m reading de Quincey, and Richardson, and again de Quincey- again de Quincey because I"m in the middle of writing about him, and my God Vita, if you happen to know do wire what"s the essential difference between prose and poetry - It cracks my poor brain to consider."

Notes
The editors have added a note stating that Virginia Woolf was writing about de Quincey's 'Impassioned Prose'. I have shown a date range between Virginia's previous and subsequent letters to Vita, as the editors have indicated that the date of the letter, and therefore the date of the reading experience, is uncertain.
