315 NATIONAL FORESTS IN VIRGINIA Virginia is home to two national forests. The George Washington National Forest is the more northern of the two, and a small part of it is in West Virginia. The Jefferson National Forest lies below the George Washington National Forest and extends south to the Tennessee and North Carolina bor- ders. Both of Virginia’s national forests are in Region 8 of the United States Forest Service and are jointly administered by the Forest Supervisor’s Office at 5162 Valleypoint Parkway, Roanoke, VA 24109, www.southernregion.fs .fed

90 Fairfax, Virginia, is less than twenty miles west of Washington, DC, and it is a popular place to live for those who hold jobs in the nation’s capital. In 2006 the Census Bureau ranked Fairfax County as having the highest median annual household income of any county in the United States, at about $105,000, and no year since then had it been out of the top fi ve. In the mornings the highways going toward Washington are packed with commuters’ cars inching along toward the Beltway, a sluggish tide of vehi- cles, most of them containing only one well

seven Sound and Fury Nature in Virginia the play that night sent its signals into nature. Asmuch as it hoped to aªect the world around it—the city of Washington, the buildings and battlefields of Virginia—the play tried also, strange as that might seem, to imprint itself on the very leaves and streams of the natural world. To con- sider how it did this, and failed to do this, is to think of the work of art in the age of evolution, especially in a time of civil war. Under such pressures, nature would either be hospitable to human acts or would increasingly crowd

APPENDIX N O T E O N T H E N A M E S O F V I R G I N I A W O O L F ' S C H A R A C T E R S That Virginia Woolf did not select names for her characters in haphazard fashion can be seen even if the meanings of only her major women's names are considered: Rachel: sheep or lamb; innocence Helen: light; bright as the sun Katharine: pure, virtuous Clara: shining; brilliant Clarissa: fair; pure; or the same as Clara Lily: the flower, a symbol of purity Orlando: the country's glory Susan: a lily Eleanor: the same as Helen Lucy: light; born at daybreak It

Appendix: Virginia Woolf's Mood Swing Chart (1895-1941) T h e graph below charts the periodicity of Virginia Woolf's reported mood swings (as indicated in Bell's biography, Virginia's letters, her diary, or Leonard's daily "Monks House" diary) from 1895 to 1941. Each month is rated in which an episode of any duration occurred. As the chart shows, Woolf suffered from a range of levels, from mild through moderate to severe, but she also enjoyed many years of normal mood, happiness, and productivity. When Virginia notes in her private diary that she is

five Center of Echoes Castle Murray, Fauquier County, Virginia within a few miles of bristoe station is Castle Murray, a Medieval Revival home designed and built for Dr. James Murray in 1857–58. Gou- verneur Kemble Warren used Murray’s home as his headquarters on the night of October 13–14, 1863. At 2:00 a.m. on the fourteenth a messenger rode up to the castle with Warren’s orders from General George Meade, commander of the Army of the Potomac.

Selections from “Ridiculous in Piccadilly.” from The Virginia Woolf Poems From “The Genesis of ‘Ridiculous in Piccadilly.’” “Ridiculous in Piccadilly.” comprises 11 poems [the first 4 are represented here—A. T.] drawn from Virginia Woolf ’s novel The Waves by what I call the “diastic” (on analogy with “acrostic”) or “spelling-thru” method, which I began using to make poems from source texts in January 1963. After finding the title phrase in line 4, p. 88, of the first American edition (New York: Harcourt Brace, 1931), I drew one word for each of its letters

(.Paraphrase: Virginia City Territorial Enterprise, 24 Apr 68) We received the following telegram from him last night dated at Co- burn's: " I am doing well. Have crossed one divide without getting robbed anyway. Mark Twain." 1 1 Coburn Station (now Truckee, California) "came into existence when the Central Pacific surveyed the route across the pass in 1863-64"; it was named for the owner of a local saloon (Gudde, 328). Clemens had just

123 Imperial space is often imagined through a binary relation- ship between metropole and colony, in which power trickles from center to periphery, and both retain their location. As an American suburb, Northern Virginia would appear to be sealed off from these relationships by design, as a domestic, residential space inherently defined by the gap between the for- eign and the domestic. In the U.S. context, the assertion that this nation has a non-territorial empire also tends to sideline spatial analysis or to draw it away from civilian places to the
