I think Elizabeth Dalloway should go visit Anna Karenina’s Kitty and Levin.
People were beginning to compare her to poplar trees, early dawn, hyacinths, fawns, running water, and garden lilies; and it made her life a burden to her, for she so much preferred being left alone to do what she liked in the country, but they would compare her to lilies, and she had to go to parties, and London was so dreary compared with being alone in the country with her father and the dogs. (Mrs. Dalloway)
I think a stay at the happy couple’s countryside home is just what Elizabeth needs: a little Arbeitskür
Hay-cutting is the perfect prescription for unhappy, unfulfilled socialites.
