9781843911418: Hyde Park Gate News: The Stephen Family Newspaper (Modern Fiction)

As children, Virginia Woolf, elder sister Vanessa Bell, and brother Thoby Stephen collaborated on their very own family newspaper. Published here, Hyde Park Gate News includes the original drawings as well as previously unpublished photographs from the family albums. Ingeniously mimicking the style of the leading newspapers of their day, the Stephen children present a charming and candid portrayal of the day-to-day events at their family home in London and at their holiday home in St Ives. Gossipy, playful, and at times irreverent, they record the comings and goings of a host of figures, George Meredith and Henry James among them, while also proffering their own fictional, poetic, and artistic creations. Acclaimed for her innovative style, Virginia Woolf (1882–1941) is one of the most important figures of the Modernist movement; her sister Vanessa Bell (1879–1961) was a painter and a central figure of the Bloomsbury Group.

From the Publisher:

Since its U.S. launch in 2003, Hesperus Press has enjoyed a growing reputation for its inspired publishing program of short classic works. Written by illustrious authors, and often unjustly neglected or simply little known in the English-speaking world, these works have been made accessible via a completely fresh editorial approach and new translations.

In addition to the Hesperus Classics, Hesperus Press recently introduced two new series: Modern Voices, drawing from the very best of 20th-century literature, and Hesperus Contemporary, showcasing the work of leading contemporary writers.

About the Author:

Acclaimed for her innovative and inventive style, Virginia Woolf (1882-1941) is one of the most important figures of the Modernist Movement; her elder sister Vanessa Bell (1879-1961) was a painter and a central figure of the Bloomsbury Group. Foreword writer Hermione Lee is the acclaimed Virginia Woolf scholar and the author of Virginia Woolf (Knopf, 1997) Gill Lowe (Editor)is a Senior Teaching Practitioner at Suffolk College, UEA. Her specialist areas are auto/biography, children's literature and issues of adaptation. Working for her M.A. in 'Life-writing' at U.E.A. she began to research the life of Julia Jackson/ Duckworth/ Stephen. This involved close study of the manuscript of 'Hyde Park Gate News'.
