In this first-ever biography of Leonard Woolf, husband to Virginia Woolf and a founding member of Bloomsbury, the creative home of early 20th-century Britain's foremost literary lights and thinkers, Glendinning brings careful research and new material to bear on every aspect of his life. Photos.
From the Publisher:
An analysis of the Bloomsbury founding member and husband of Virginia Woolf explores the impact of his father's death on his comfortable Jewish childhood, his relationships with such contemporaries as E. M. Forster and T. S. Eliot, and the influence of his political theories on the League of Nations.
Though best known as the husband and widower of Virginia Woolf, Leonard Woolf was a remarkable man of letters himself who wrote five autobiographical works recounting his life as a Jew at Cambridge, an early publisher of T.S. Eliot, and loving husband of his long-suffering wife. Victoria Glendinning's new biography both demonstrates the power and beauty of Woolf's own writing, and saves him from the accusations of patriarchy that have dogged him since his wife's death.


"Victoria Glendinning's splendid new biography, LEONARD WOOLF...rescue[s] him from ideologues who see Virginia's suicide in 1941 as some sort of patriarchal crime." - John Leonard 09/01/2006
