How do I enjoy Woolf?

Understand that Wolf was an author who experienced tragedy and suffering early on in life. Her works are best read when one is feeling anxious and somber. She allows you to experience another's dread through her work.

Also, the waves is her magnum opus.

Can you explain why you liked The Waves? I enjoyed To The Lighthouse but found The Waves super disappointing
I'm not 100% sure I 'got' it, but I think I did, and I think what I 'got' was stupid

The characters were really noncharacters too .. and I think that was intentional, I just don't know what to take from that

The waves was Woolf's transcendance from Lighthouse as a modernist writer, leaving the human characters behind, moving into a more spiritual sequent. In the waves, the monologues are not seperate characters, they are "facets of consciousness for continuity". What makes the waves so exceptional is that it challenges the very definition of what a novel can be; many critics unable to distinguish it between an exact story or poem.

You don't.

Really thinking it might just be this. I'm reading Jacob's Room right now and it's just been one of the most frustrating and least rewarding reading experiences I've ever had.
