A Change of Perspective: The Letters of Virginia Woolf Volume 3 1923-1928

£9.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

The first volume of Virginia Woolf's letters has introduced the reader to their ebullience and wit. The second volume shows her as a mature woman between the ages of 30 and 40. The third volume covers the period when she wrote five of her best-known books: Mrs Dalloway, To The Lighthouse, The Common Reader, Orlando and A Room Of One's Own. It also traces the slow evolution of her love-affair with Vita Sackville-West. In this period Leonard Woolf and Virginia continued to lead a very active life socially and at the Hogarth Press which was becoming a firm of major literary importance. Several of their friends such as Lytton Strachey, T. S. Elliot, E. M. Forster, Maynard Keynes and Roger Fry, were becoming as eminent in their own fields as Virginia was becoming in hers. It was Bloomsbury's most triumphant period. This 1981 paperback book is in a fair condition with several brown marks and scratches to the cover, whose spine is also cracked in several places and bleaches by the sun. The cover also has creasing to its corners and the inside of the front cover is covered by a letter written in pink ink. There is an original price label on the back of the cover from "Chatto" and evidence of price labels being removed else where on the cover. There are some scratches, chips and marks to the page block only visible when the book is closed but the 600 pages themselves appear clean apart from minor dogging to some of their corners.
