Overview

Copublished with Pace University Press, this book is a valuable addition to scholarship on Bloomsbury, the history of women in Britain, and the work of Leonard and Virginia Woolf. It portrays an era and illuminates the work of a number of famous writers by examining less well-known lives and works that were part of the adaptive complex, or milieu. Several essays and appendices contribute significantly to our understanding of the extent that the Woolfs collaborated with each other and with others. Beside the literary histories of S.P. Rosenbaum, this collection of original essays will be essential reading for students of Bloomsbury and women's history. Illustrated.
