Virginia Woolf was prescribed Mitchell’s rest cure. Similar to Gilman and other women writers, Woolf criticized his treatment methods, also suggesting that her depression had worsened. Woolf deliberately mentions the rest cure in her novel Mrs. Dalloway through both autobiographical and fictional recounts. Mrs. Dalloway serves as a warning of the fatalities of utilizing medicalization for repressing grief.

“Lock up your libraries if you like; but there is no gate, no lock, no bolt that you can set upon the freedom of my mind.”~ Virginia Woolf

It is fatal to be a man or woman pure and simple: one must be a woman manly, or a man womanly. -Virginia Woolf

“If one does not lie back & sum up & say to the moment, this very moment, say you are so fair, what will be one’s gain, dying? No: stay, this moment. No one ever says that enough.”
