Item description for Virginia Woolf (H Books) (H Books) by Anthony Curtis...

Virginia Woolf (1882-1941) was a central figure of the Bloomsbury Group. This new biography approaches her from a very personal angle: 'I first came across Virginia Woolf's novels as a schoolboy aged 16 in 1942, the year after her self-inflicted death by drowning', writes Author Anthony Curtis. 'I read "Jacob's Room", "To the Lighthouse", "Mrs. Dalloway", "The Waves", all in our school library put there by a woman teacher who was a great admirer. I discussed them with her and arrived at a conception of The Modern Novel in which narrative is filtered through inner consciousness of characters. Then I read the novelists Virginia Woolf was reacting against: Wells, Bennett, Galsworthy, and pondered the limitations of Woolf's techniques against their linear approach to narrative and accumulation of externally observed detail. The critical debate between the 'traditional' and "modern" approach to writing fiction has exercised me ever since. Which is more "real"?'

Reviews - What do customers think about Virginia Woolf (H Books) (H Books)?

Seamlessly blends the twin issues of Woolf's literary achievements and the context of their creation  Sep 8, 2006
Literary journalism Anthony Curtis reviewed the volumes of Virginia Woolf's diaries, letters, and essays when they were first published, as well as accounts of her life history and mental illness. Virginia Woolf: Bloomsbury & Beyond is his biographical expose of Woolf that seeks to answer the question, "Of what does Virginia Woolf's greatness consist?" Vintage black-and-white photographs illustrate this distinguished study of her life and literature, which also takes into account the contemporary novels that Woolf's writing was a reaction against, and especially her rebellion against the linear narrative. A fascinating read for scholars and lay readers alike, Virginia Woolf seamlessly blends the twin issues of Woolf's literary achievements and the context of their creation. Highly recommended.
