Flush is Elizabeth Barrett Browning's randy, aristocratic, floppish pet spaniel. In her biography, Virginia Woolf follows Flush's career from his birth in Berkshire and his first years with the invalid, Miss Barrett, through to his kidnapping by London vagabonds and his dotage in Italy. The introduction of this book presents "Flush" alongside Woolf's other biographies, "Roger Fry" and "Orlando", and analyses Woolf's attitude towards servants, especially her fascination with Barrett Browning's maid, Elizabeth Wilson, the inspiration for Margaret Forster's novel, "Lady's Maid".
