As the streets that lead from the Strand to the Embankment are very narrow, it is better not to walk down them arm-in-arm. If you persist, lawyers' clerks will have to make flying leaps into the mud; young lady typists will have to fidget behind you. In the streets of London where beauty goes unregarded, eccentricity must pay the penalty, and it is better not to be very tall, to wear a long blue cloak, or to beat the air with your left hand.
One afternoon in the beginning of October when the traffic was becoming brisk a tall man strode along the edge of the pavement with a lady on his arm. Angry glances struck upon their backs. The small, agitated figures—for in comparison with this couple most people looked small—decorated with fountain pens, and burdened with despatch-boxes, had appointments to keep, and drew a weekly salary, so that there was some reason for the unfriendly stare which was bestowed upon Mr. Ambrose's height and upon Mrs. Ambrose's cloak. But some enchantment had put both man and woman beyond the reach of malice and unpopularity. In his guess one might guess from the moving lips that it was thought; and in hers from the eyes fixed stonily straight in front of her at a level above the eyes of most that it was sorrow. It was only by scorning all she met that she kept herself from tears, and the friction of people brushing past her was evidently painful.

Moore, gli «Apostoli» del Trinity College (tra essi B. Russell, G. Lytton Strachey, J.M. Keynes, L. Wittgenstein, E.M. Forster, D. Garnett, L. Woolf, C. Bell, R. Fry). Nel 1904 i fratelli Stephen si trasferirono nel quartiere di Bloomsbury, dove, intorno a Thoby (morto nel 1906), a Virginia e a sua sorella Vanessa, gli ex Apostoli di Cambridge formarono il gruppo che venne chiamato Bloomsbury set, destinato a dominare per...
