May 1, 2019 0 Comment

In Virginia Woolf’s ” The Death of the Moth, ” the author notices a moth while he was flying energetically until he felt exhausted and he died peacefully. Throughout the actions of the moth, Woolf reveals the reality of how humans forget the meaning of life and face regrets at the time when death comes. More specifically, the tone in the beginning toward the moth as happy to upsetting, the symbol of the window that presents a fence, and the metaphor of the moth as life itself, all of which end up representing the life of a human being.
