Sindh Travel on The fin appeared first in a diary entry written Thursday, September 30, 1926, when Woolf was just glimpsing what became The Waves, but was then still called The Moths: l wished to add some remarks to this, on the mystical side of this solicitude; how it is not oneself but something in the universe that one’s left with. It is this that is frightening and exciting in the midst of my profound gloom, depression, boredom, whatever it is. One sees a fin passing far out. What image can l reach to convey what l mean? Really there is none, l think. (D, 103) The word mystical as an appellation for The Waves and as a name for Woolfs own deepest experience echoes through A Writer’s Diary, as l have said. Woolf daims at one point later in the Diary that in The Waves 1 have netted that fin in the waste ofwater which appeared to me over the marshes out of my window at Rodmell [the Woolfs’ house by the sea when l was coming to an end of Ta the Lighthause (D, 162). One example among several of this motifs appearance in The Waves cornes near the end, in Bernard’s final long soliloquy: Nothing came, nothing. Sindh Travel 2016.
