9780140189247: Flush: A Biography (Penguin Twentieth Century Classics)

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".

Review:

"A most triumphant trespassing of human imagination into dog sensibilities... The result is a book of irresistible grace and charm" ( Spectator)

"A masterpiece... It is not fiction because it has the substance, the reality of truth. It is not biography because it has the freedom, the artistry of fiction" ( New York Herald Tribune Books)

Book Description:

A lively and touching biography of the cocker spaniel given to Elizabeth Barrett Browning by Mary Russell Mitford.
