Title: A Very Close Conspiracy: Vanessa Bell and ...
Publisher: Little Brown, Boston
Publication Date: 1990
Edition: First Printing of the First US Edition
A Fine tight copy in a Fine bright unclipped dust jacket. The author analizes the lifelong relationship between the sisters Vanessa Bell and Virginia Woolf producing an absorbing view of the psychological tensions and extraordinary accomplishments of both in their respective careers as artist and writer. The lives of Virginia Woolf and Vanessa Bell embodied opposites of human nature. The former was dedicated to the life of the mind and imagination, the latter to sensuous and sensual experience. This book shows how the two sisters developed and enriched each other's lives. The two sisters' childhood was blighted by tragedy and trauma and their early lives were subject to the frustrations that were common to the women of Victorian and Edwardian England. Dunn argues that their subsequent successes as writer and artist owed much to this mutual enrichment. Bookseller Inventory # 24026
