A relapse of the all-consuming depression she had narrowly escaped in her youth had finally claimed her life. Light looks at Woolf’s early efforts to create servant characters, such as Chailey in The Voyage Out, a longtime servant for the Vinrace family in her 50s, who is grieving over the death of her.
