About the Author:

JULIA BRIGGS is a professor of English at De Montfort University in Leicester, England. She was professor of Woolf studies at Hereford College, Oxford, for many years and is currently the editor of the reprint series of Woolf's novels. She lives in Leicester.

Review:

"A model of the biographer's art, combining as it does diligent research, abundant quotations and a judicious and self-effacing narrative written in attractive and readable prose... One of the really great biographies of recent times" -- Ray Monk * Sunday Telegraph * "A work of art, evoking by his frankness and outstanding skill the vivid personality that cast a spell upon almost everyone lucky enough to know her" -- Raymond Mortimer "Professor Bell is absolute master of his material. He brings his subject to life with such honesty that one almost forgets that she wrote some of the great important novels of the period" -- Anthony Curtis "Outstanding..romantic, enthralling, even hilarious" -- Margaret Lane "Will rank among the great lives" -- Arthur Calder-Marshall

Book Description Mariner Books, United States, 1974. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The author of such landmark works as Mrs. Dalloway, To the Lighthouse, and A Room of One s Own and a woman and an artist far ahead of the time in which she lived and worked, Virginia Woolf has been the object of scrutiny ever since her suicide in 1941. Here, using excerpts from family journals as well as pieces of Virginia s own correspondance and diaries, Quentin Bell has created an unparalleled portrait of his aunt and provides a view of Bloomsbury life as only a family member could. Through a childhood of arrivals and departures to the inspiration behind Woolf s greatest books, her marriage to Leonard Woolf, and her daring affair with Vita Sackville-West, Bell reveals the human being behind what has become the Bloomsbury legend.
