Brief Lives: Virginia Woolf
Virginia Woolf has been among the most scrutinized figures of the past century. Her unique literary genius, pioneering work for women’s rights, position at the nucleus of the Bloomsbury group, high-profile family and marriage, relationship with Vita Sackville-West, and suicide have all been dissected. Life and art were, for Woolf, inextricably entangled, and the autobiographical elements of many of her works, including the masterpieces To the Lighthouse and The Waves, have heightened interest in this most fascinating of figures. Elizabeth Wright here takes a fresh look at the life and legacy of one of the greatest figures of English literature. Perfect for Woolf enthusiasts and newcomers alike, Brief Lives: Virginia Woolf offers a concise, authoritative account of the author's life, and presents an engaging overview of her afterlife in literary history.
