5.0 out of 5 stars Virginia Woolf - A Review by Barry Van-Asten 19 Nov 2013
`Virginia Woolf' by Quentin Bell, a nephew of the great writer, his father being the art critic Clive Bell (1881-1964) who married Virginia's sister Vanessa, is an excellent work which ascends to the highest standards in the art of biography. Originally published as two volumes in 1972, Bell takes us through all the major stages of Virginia's life from her early childhood and writings, through to the Bloomsbury Group, her marriage to Leonard Woolf (1880-1969) in 1912 and the mental illness which eventually drove her to end her life.
She was born Adeline Virginia Stephen in 1882 and she lived with her sister Vanessa and her brothers at Hyde Park Gate, London, before moving to Bloomsbury after her father Sir Leslie Stephen's death in 1904. After her first novel; `The Voyage Out' was published in 1915 and the Hogarth Press was set up with her husband Leonard two years later, she really came into her own creatively. Many of Woolf's characters are drawn from life, from the people around her as an exploration of the relationship and intimacy she had with them and with the world around her. Her works include: `Night and Day' (1919), `Jacob's Room' (1922), `Mrs Dalloway' (1925), `To the Lighthouse' (1927), `Orlando' (1928), `The Waves' (1931), `The Years' (1937) and `Between the Acts' (1941) which after completion she drowned herself in the River Ouse, near her home in Rodmell, Sussex on 28th March 1941.

4.0 out of 5 stars for the good and the bad 15 Nov 2006
Good biography of the writer Virginia Stephen, later named Woolf after his marriage, a very important detail, because if to marry ever is important, for Mrs. Woolf that was I think more than for most people, as she was a person which passed unfortunately his entire life between health and disease, this late mostly mental, and you know marriage in effect is to endure "In Health and Disease", for the good and the bad. Well, I think in few cases this was as true and full accomplished as in the abnegate conduct of Leonard Woolf, who cared tirelessly of a wife which paradoxically wrote much against male egotism.
