    1. At the heart of this volume of Leonard Woolf s autobiography are his discussions of his wife, Virginia Woolf The author recounts his falling in love with Virginia, their marriage, and, most significantly, accounts of their life together during Virginia s recurring bouts with mental illness Mr Woolf s deep and profound understanding of his wife s condition and his recollections of its impact on their life is both an important contribution to an understanding of Virginia s life and work, and an ac [...]


    2. So far the strongest of these autobiography volumes We get the marriage to Virginia, the destruction of the Great War, Leonard s politics and his rise in said circles , TS Eliot s poetry published by the Woolfs, and the birth of the Hogarth Press Woolf is critical of himself and others his eye does not mitigate his opinions then or now His mind also allows us to continue to take big asides with him, which can be fun and curious especially when he brings us 20 years away from where his story is c [...]


    3. Probably my favorite volume in the series This book is basically fascinating reports of the early entity that was Virginia and Leonard s marriage her fragile mental health that led to a complete breakdown in 1913, and the after affects that reverberated for her and for Leonard for than another year or so Also detailed accounts of their daily working life their writing their reading their buying of houses Asham Monk s House, the country houses, briefly Clifford s Inn, and Hogarth House LW s thr [...]


    4. I wondered if Woolf was staring to get a little scattered in his old again here as he kept saying that he wanted to tell his story chronologically and then jumping all over the place and repeating himself Reading this and Penelope Fitzgerald at the same time really emphasizes how small the English upper classes are and how they all know each other Loved hearing about Virginia from his point of view even if much of what he relates is sad and disturbing It s hard to think she could have been quite [...]


    5. See full review here ilayreading 2016 02 17 begI think that I will stick to reading regular biographies of the couple from now on I m still very much interested in their life and I do have a book marked from Vanessa Bell s perspective but Leonard Woolf, my man, you should ve let your wife do the writing.


    6. I found this in a used book store and bought it, and even though it s the third volume of five I found it easy to read without the others Very interesting.



    7. Always a pleasure to spend a weekend with Leonard This covers the years 1911 1918, and is a fascinating look at life in London, the literary scene and birth of the Labour Party.
