Summary
This volume brings together a selection of short essays on the Bloomsbury Group - the loose association of artists and writers centred around the sisters Virginia Woolf and Vanessa Bell, which had an important influence on cultural and intellectual life in early 20th-century Britain. Essayists include Hermione Lee, biographer of Virginia Woolf; art historians Richard Shone and Frances Spalding; Nigel Nicolson, author of Portrait of a Marriage, a study of his parents, Vita Sackville-West and Harold Nicolson; and the last survivors of those closely connected to the Bloomsbury Group - Frances Partridge, Quentin Bell and Angelica Garnett.
