Very disappointed with this DVD. Not enough information and far too short for the cost.

5.0 out of 5 stars Virginia Woolf: her life & times 29 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase
This DVD is quite a precious documentary effort depicting the life and the contemporary scenes in the life of this author. I do not like the Amazon automatic "I love it" sign that comes on the screen as soon as the five star award is activated. However, in this case I actually do love this DVD and recommend it to students, teachers and academics as well as to ordinary readers who enjoy Virginia Woolf, but struggle with the challenges she faced, the eras where wars ravaged beloved cities and countries and where the milieu of her contemporaries were slain in useless wars. The DVD depicts all this with delicacy
and authority. A really informative watch for all advanced students and readers.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not much to it 28 Jan 2013
By Anne West - Published on

If you don't know anything about Woolf, and just want a brief sketch of her life, then this film is fine. If you want an indepth, accurate biography, "Famous Authors Series" will disapoint every time. History Channel, National Geographic, and Nova are a little better than Famous Authors. PBS and Biography are much better. PBS is really the best.

A concise and informative summary of the life of a literary genius, even if the presentation is rather pedestrian. The overall film quality is slightly grainy and pasty, but it is nevertheless interesting to see so many photographs of Woolf and her family.
