5-0 out of 5 stars Virginia Woolf: A Biography
Virginia Woolf: A Biography
By now, it is the most chronologically complete biography of Virginia Woolf, also giving interesting details about her ancestors. Some data of the family life might have been omitted in the book but in general it is a pretty objective and accurate work showing a lot of academic research.

4-0 out of 5 stars somewhat boring to read
This book is very informative, but lacks style. It contains many pictures of Virginia Woolf, her family members and friends which give you some insight into the actual life of the troubled author. I found it difficult to continue reading because the style was so rigid and antiquated.

3-0 out of 5 stars a bit dull
This book is written in a style that is definitely boring, but it is enhanced by scattered pictures of Virginia Woolf, her friends, husband and family members. The content is very informative, however the style of writing leaves alot to be desired.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very detailed
history of Virginia Woolf.So much has been written about VW (her life and her works), there is no need to add anything here.This book is written by VW's nephew, and is impressively comprehensive in scope.This is a two-volume biography, but it is sold as a single volume.Chapters are divided by years (e.g., Volume I, Chapter eight, is simply titled "1909").The eight appendices include:Clive Bell and the Writing of "The Voyage Out"; The Dreadnought Hoax; and, Virginia Woolf and Julian Bell.

5-0 out of 5 stars If she only knew valium
Well, after reading this exhaustive biography I think with more or less reason several things. Virginia Woolf was a woman of great intelligence but unbalanced and at the cost of her instinctive life, I think not homosexual as it's said, but mostly uninterested in the sexual part of life. Shehas the drive to justify this and she said a real artist needed to be nor man nor woman in order to avoid prejudices and to possess a clear vision of the real facts of life, a doubtful point of view because there are great artist with strong sexual drive straight or not. I believe she was surely not primarily so ill at the mental sphere, because all these medications as digital, symptoms as palpitations and physical exhaustion, faints, etc, are symptoms of physical or even social diseases, yes, with repercussion in the psychic life, added to the extremely exigent work of writing his works. For all that I believe V. Woolf was no so mad as it's commonly said and could be saved by a more scientific and modern medicine. Certainly, personal and historical contingences as the death of friends and familiars, WWI and over all WWII with the fear to the Nazi invasion of England and repression against Jews as her husband and intellectuals as herself could not be avoided although I believe by 1941 these fears were objectively less probable. I can' avoid a pity for this woman. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best volume of letters so far.
Volume 4 of Virginia's letters is the best, so far, of the three volumes I have (2,3,4).(I have ordered 1,5,and 6). What makes this volume stand out to me are Virginia's letters to Ethel Smyth.Virginia's letters to Ethel are the most obviously witty.Some make one laugh out loud.I've often heard that VW could be witty/funny but haven't seen much evidence of it, at least that I could fathom. But here Virginia may be at her funniest.V obviously feels very free to be herself to Ethel; more than to anybody else I'd dare say.For the letters to Ethel alone this volume is precious, but there are many very good letters in this particular volume.An added bonus in this volume are 14 photos.Excerpt; "I felt very compunctious and rumpaxtious and gromboolious into the bargain (when I saw you go off...); bought a new camera said to be unrivalled in the portrayal of the human-if mine can be said to be human-face.So I shall send you a whole series of Virginia, and you will say very properly curse the woman for a quick silver mine of vanity - those will be your very words, and justified too: but also it shall record the noble features of the dripping cat", etc., etc., etc..Another sample: "Well Ethel dear, I'm very glad that the poor cat - oh no I mean the happy the hirsute, the erect, the brindling and bristling cat - in fact the hedgehog, has gone to bed happy", etc...Highly recommended book. ...

Product Description

Virginia Woolf is one of the most influential figures in twentieth-century literature. She was original, passionate, vivid, dedicated to her art. Yet most writing about her still revolves around her social life and the Bloomsbury set. 
 
In this fresh, absorbing book, Julia Briggs puts the writing back at the center of Woolf’s life, reads that life through her work, and mines the novels themselves to create a compelling new form of biography. Analyzing Woolf’s own commen­tary on the creative process through her letters, diaries, and essays, Julia Briggs has produced a book that is a convincing, moving portrait of an artist, as well as a profound meditation on the nature of creativity.

4-0 out of 5 stars Va. Woolf: An Inner Life
Intimate and detailed look at Virginia Woolf's life and writing process. I liked the details.

5-0 out of 5 stars Hard to pigeon-hole
this book as a biography or as a series of critical essays of Virginia Woolf's novels and other works.I lumped this book with the other three biographies of VW that I have read this past year (Quentin Bell's, Hermione Lee's, and James King's) but Julia Brigg's "biography" is actually quite different, and probably should stand alone, not be compared with the other three.Each of Briggs' fourteen chapters covers one specific work by VW.For example, chapter 4 is "Jacob's Room"; chapter 5 is "The Common Reader"; chapter 6 is "Mrs Dalloway"; and, chapter 13 is "Roger Fry."Briggs provides an exhaustive look and interpretation (sometimes, almost too exhaustive) of each of VW's works, and uses these works to explore VW's psyche.VW was intensely interested in psychoanalysis (as was Gertrude Stein) and one could argue that Briggs has used VW's works as a way to psychoanalyze her.Briggs is well qualified in this endeavor:for many years she was professor of Woolf studies at Hereford College, Oxford, and is currently the editor of the Penguin UK reprint series of Woolf's novels.

4-0 out of 5 stars Don't Be Afraid of Virginia Woolf --Briggs bio is amazing...
Julie Briggs is an amazing author and biographer. She is an ENglish prof at DeMontfant University in Leicester, England. She was the general editor for the Penguin UK reprint series of Woolf's novels so knows Virginia's work very well...I think this knowledge of the work and the structure of the work makes this rather indepth analysis of the famous author's motivation for writing the novels, personal circumstances surrounding the writing, her marriage, her friendships and her ever-declining health and mental problems is what makes this book so fascinating...It's no ordinary bio-- it concentrates on the work and the impetus for the work. Reading this book is like being allowed inside the writer's head and her 'office' while and after she creates her many volumes. Don't I wish I had read this book in college-- it really makes you understand not only writer motivations but the implosion the world around makes on the writer and his/her works. Great for any Woolf fan or for use in teaching Woolf or for any writer or would-be writer. Fabulous for use in women's studies programs...and fascinating for anyone struggling with their own creativity or stifled dreams/goals.

5-0 out of 5 stars Satisfying
Briggs biography of Virginia Woolf follows a form that makes perfect sense for a biography of a writer. That is, it is a "biography" of her books as much as it is a biography of Virginia Woolf herself.

Not a great deal of time is spent going into Woolf's pre-natal background and infant years. The text quickly gets to the task of looking at the formative influences of Woolf the writer, and the circumstances and stimuli that influenced the creation and formation of each of her books.

A chronological approach is followed. We begin with the first efforts of writing, the first novel, and proceed sequentially through each of her books. A full chapter is given to the period in which each book was written and published. Each chapter concludes with details on the actual book, including such items as the novel's original cover illustration (usually done by her artist sister Vanessa), the size of the print runs, the critics responses, and how the book fared over the years, even up into the 1990s. Honestly, I found information like this very interesting. For one, it was interesting to see how first print runs increased as Woolf gradually grew in popularity.

What I most like about Brigg's approach is that you come away with key insights that any appreciator of Woolf should cherish. One learns a great deal about the process that Woolf went through in creating her works as well as about the life of Woolf herself. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars and the story continues...
Laughed at my hat, worry about clothes, Wells, Vita, Eliot, Ethel, Carrington, Hardy, Yeats, and all the regulars; new oil stove (one turns a dial and it has a thermometer!) books writing and re-writing, selling, stress, the usual depression when books published (but oh how exciting it is to read about) ;lots of feelings recorded, writing a profound pleasure, fame, money, happiness, foreshadow; on it goes in this third volume of the diaries .This wonderful, genius, enchanting, page-turner diary.I highly recommend reading all five of Virginia Woolf's diaries.Never boring or slow.The ultimate stream of consciousness.

5-0 out of 5 stars Simply beautiful
Of all of Virginia's diaries (there are five volumes), volumes 3 and 4 are perhaps the most interesting, if only because they span the period in which she wrote her classics such as Orlando, To The Lighthouse, and The Waves (which itself literally spans the period between Vol 3 and Vol 4.)

If you read the collected Diaries and Woman Of Letters by Phyllis Rose, you will gain a vital series of insights into the life and thoughts of this most haunting of female writers.

Whenever I think of Virginia, I always think of the lines from "Vincent" by Don Maclean...

This world was never meant
for one as beautiful as you...

If you have never read any Virginia Woolf, I would respectfully suggest you rent a copy of Sally Potter's Orlando. While Sally takes artistic license with the novel, she has created a very sympathetic work of Art.

This diary above all gives you many insights into her thought processes and her writing career, including her reactions to the publication of her works and their reception by the public and the sub-species known as Critics.
