Product Description

Review

"If one could be friendly with women, what a pleasure--the relationship so secret and private compared with relations to men."

"Vanessa Curtis's portrait of Woolf, her family, and her friends is quite compelling. What I found most distinctive is Curtis's fine appreciation of the emotional tissue that connected Woolf to the women who loved her.... Using diaries and letters, Curtis illuminates these varied relationships."

From the Author

I wrote 'Virginia Woolf's Women' because I could see that there was a lack of books concentrating specifically on the women in Woolf's life. The early period of Woolf's life, spent in the claustrophobic existence of Victorian patriarchal society, particularly interests me, and I wanted to convey something of the effect that her mother, sister and half-sister had on her entire life. The other women featured in the book are all hugely characterful, and all, in different ways, had a profound influence on Virginia Woolf. Although very different from one another, they were all loved by Woolf and, in their various ways, loved her back (albeit tolerantly, in some cases!). It was a particular challenge to find photographs and texts that have not been published widely before, and which I think illustrate the transformation of Virginia Stephen, nervous teenager, into the confident, humorous writer of genius that she grew into. I think that her friendships with the women!
I have researched, should be celebrated as an antidote to the age-old misconceptions of Woolf as a unsmiling depressive. She was capable of much laughter and enjoyment and women, in particular, were able to light the touchpaper, sit back - and enjoy the sparks. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Format: Paperback
This is a wonderfully descriptive and readable book, whether you're a fan or a scholar of VW. I was impressed both by the facts that have been unearthed and the interpretation of the facts, and I LOVE the writing style. I like the way each chapter begins with a quotation that sets the scene. The book has been researched very thoroughly and there's plenty of new material that I hadn't read before, despite the fact I've read most of the Bloomsbury biogs. Lovely plate sections, with some photographs that are new to me. I had to limit myself to one chapter per sitting, or I wouldn't have got any sleep!
