The article focuses on the own wedding of Leonard and Virginia Woolf. It states that the their wedding became increasingly heterogeneous in its interests and more likely to blur boundaries between so-called highbrow modernist and middlebrow writing. It mentions that the modern varieties of late Victorian "New Women" were wary of marriage as an all-consuming profession, an inescapable prison, or the equivalent of prostituting themselves for financial security without love or sexual fulfillment.
