Virginia Woolf started to write a biography of Elizabeth Barrett Browning's spaniel after finishing The Waves, tracing the life of the spaniel from his country origins, his puppyhood spent with the writer Mary Mitford, through his sheltered existence with Elizabeth Barrett in her sick room, and later travels in Florence. But Flush is much more than a playful writer's holiday. Woolf explores class and gender in Victorian London, with gently mocking humor. Charming yet also radical, Flush is a work of sensuous imagination.
