A Profound Weariness:

being constantly reminded that there is not one iota of difference between this:
[Macalister's boy took one of the fish and cut a square out of its side to bait his hook with. The mutilated body (it was alive still) was thrown back into the sea.] (Virginia Woolf, To The Lighthouse).

and this.
