hen a wife dies and leaves her husband her diary, all is possible. In Gilbert Clandon's case, the legacy his wife leaves him is much more than he could ever have imagined.
Virginia Woolf signs an exceptional short story which questions the foundations of marriage, people's need for communication by any means possible and their inclusion in a mutually beneficial partnership. When one reneges on that contract, the other will seek new outlets to grow, as personal development in any marriage is inevitable. If that development is undertaken without any consideration for one's spouse, then problems will unavoidably ensue.
The Legacy is a straightforward tale of love, loneliness, secrets, independence and sorrow that should make readers wonder about the state of their intimate relationships. Interspersed with clues that lead to the overwhelming conclusion, this story places readers in almost the same shoes as its main character, Gilbert Clandon, and like voyeurs, they peek over his shoulder as he's reading his wife's fifteen volumes of private scribblings to see what this successful politician's wife has to say about her life and death.
