The Letters of Virginia Woolf : Vol. 3

by Nigel Nicolson

Hardcover, 1978




Harcourt Brace Jovanovich (1978), Edition: First American Edition, 600 pages


Opening soon after Virginia Woolf met Vita Sackville-West and culminating with the publication of Orlando, this volume of letters covers Bloomsbury's most triumphant period. This was the time when Woolf wrote five of her best-known books, including Mrs Dalloway and To the Lighthouse, and whilst she became one of the most famous writers of her generation, many of her friends - Lytton Strachey, T.S. Eliot, E.M. Forster - had become equally eminent. The slow evolution of Virginia's affair with Vita is traced through some of her wittiest letters, while her correspondence with her sister Vanessa and other friends reveals a strong sympathy with people beneath her ironic view of life.
