VIRGINIA WOOLF (1882–1941) was one of the major literary figures of the twentieth century. An admired literary critic, she authored many essays, letters, journals, and short stories in addition to her groundbreaking novels.From Library Journal:
This selection from the six volumes of Woolf's letters follows her from earliest childhood through the suicide note she left Leonard in March 1941. Woolf is usually relaxed and high-spirited in her sprightly, inventive, entertaining letters. She seems to be performing, and the performances vary from correspondent to correspondent. Twelve of the letters are new, four public letters to magazine editors are included for the first time, and "among the new materials must be counted restoration of excerpts omitted from the complete edition for fear of hurting people." An engaging portrait of Woolf emerges from the letters (though one wonders how many engaging portraits of Woolf the world requires). Unfortunately, the editor has made cuts in most of the letters, a curious and aggravating policy.
