This chapter provides an account of Woolf’s unfinished introduction to an unwritten book on ‘Byron and Mr Briggs’ and ‘Reading’. Here, Woolf explores the way reading includes connecting or otherwise negotiating gaps in information. This creates something of great constancy and greater consistency in the process of ‘making a whole’.

Keywords: unfinished introduction; reading; information gaps; making a whole; Mr Briggs
