The Cavalcade is a collection of poems that explores what we think about when we think about historical figures. Here, Virginia Woolf explores a rich, inner-personal life—goes to the grocery store, shows desire, considers the literary canon, reimagines her own suicide. Here, the Chilean dictator Pinochet is given the opportunity to consider his actions from inside his casket. Weaving together personal narrative with global events, The Cavalcade truly is a processional of a different sort.
