IN-TEXT CITATIONS FOR A SELECTION FROM THE ANTHOLOGY

The narrator in Virginia Woolf's "The Mark on the Wall" speculates that the mark could have been "caused by some black substance, such as a small rose leaf, left over from the summer [. . . .]" (2146).

The mark on the wall is first described as "a small round mark, black upon the white wall, about six or seven inches above the mantelpiece" (Woolf 2145).
