Art and literature

In “The Narrow Bridge of Art,” (an essay Virginia Woolf wrote in the same year as To The Lighthouse (1927)), Woolf argues that the novel is like a kind of cannibal, who devours many art forms and would ultimately incorporate “the power of music, [and] the stimulus of sight.” After reading this essay (see link to it in Modules), explain what Woolf may have meant through this statement: how did she envision the novel as an art form that is strongly interconnected to the visual arts? How does this change the nature of the novel and of fiction? Give at least 3 examples from the novel to support your arguments.
