    Bloomsbury A House of Lions is another book that I have come across whilst looking for the Cambridge Apostles an hour or so ago.I went through a period of my life, about twenty or so years ago, when I devoured any book about the Bloomsbury Group I had started with Lytton Strachey and slowly read works, mainly biographies letters diaries on Vanessa Bell, Virginia Woolf, Leonard Woolf, Roger Fry, Clive Bell, Maynard Keynes, Lydia Lopokova, Carrington, Desmond MacCathy, and Duncan Grant, etc Bloomsbury A House of Lions is another book that I have come across whilst looking for the Cambridge Apostles an hour or so ago.I went through a period of my life, about twenty or so years ago, when I devoured any book about the Bloomsbury Group I had started with Lytton Strachey and slowly read works, mainly biographies letters diaries on Vanessa Bell, Virginia Woolf, Leonard Woolf, Roger Fry, Clive Bell, Maynard Keynes, Lydia Lopokova, Carrington, Desmond MacCathy, and Duncan Grant, etc There were others, of course, on the fringe such as Aldous Huxley but the former were the individuals who continued to fascinate me, as they still do today in fact.Leon Edel has written an amazing book here published by the ever famous Hogarth Press in 1979 and the following review given upon its publication couldn t have been better With sustained literary power Leon Edel has brought into a strong, unified narrative all the complicated lives hilarious, eccentric, and often tragic of these gifted and inexorable individualists who together made up the most notorious literary coterie of modern England I couldn t have put it better myself.This is actually quite an intimate portrait of these individuals lives and the images of paintings by Vanessa Bell of the divine Duncan Grant, Leonard Woolf, Virginia Woolf, etc show the remarkable painting style of this multi faceted individual.I particularly liked the parts about Leonard s time in Ceylon, times and life in Gordon Square and especially to see Virginia Stephen, as she was at the time, slowing developing with her own unique writing style, thanks to the men who surrounded her, I believe Her style may also have been influenced by the sudden tragic death of her brother Thoby in 1906 and her depressions leading to nervous breakdowns throughout her life.A delightful book and highly recommended to Bloomsbury lovers and admirers

    This book is a great read for any Bloomsbury fan, but it definitely has its flaws.Positives focuses on the menfolk of Bloomsbury, which is a somewhat unusual perspective goes back to Bloomsbury s roots in Cambridge compelling if not entirely believable characterization of the principle figures weaves the social web beautifullyNegatives DATED which leads Edel to a strange over reliance on pop psychoanalysis i.e fixation on the mother explaining Strachey s personality and This book is a great read for any Bloomsbury fan, but it definitely has its flaws.Positives focuses on the menfolk of Bloomsbury, which is a somewhat unusual perspective goes back to Bloomsbury s roots in Cambridge compelling if not entirely believable characterization of the principle figures weaves the social web beautifullyNegatives DATED which leads Edel to a strange over reliance on pop psychoanalysis i.e fixation on the mother explaining Strachey s personality and to make some extremely simplistic conclusions about relationships in Bloomsbury based on his perception of the gender binary how men act vs how women act also ends somewhat abruptly I d love a fewchapters, even with Edel s weirdness.Still a great read, but I wouldn t rely on it for a complete picture of Bloomsbury

    Virginia Woolf has been over biographed, so no surprises there, but I am a new convert to the cult of Lytton Strachey Where can I get a copy of Eminent Victorians I hear it s the second most stolen book, after Abbie Hoffman s Steal This Book, which is quite a recommendation.In the end, though, as a pacifist, I mof a Garsington man than a Bloomsbury man.

    This was one of the first biographies well, not of a person but of a group of people that I ever read I was a teenager and I remember being totally engrossed in it, so at the very least it s easy to read and very entertaining I don t know where I put the volume but I really want to give it another go now that I m older and make a proper review.

    This is maybe emerging as the best choice for a Bloomsbury book

    3.5 stars This is a picture group biography microhistory of the heart of Bloomsbury the major players up through 1920 He includes the Woolfs, the Bells, Keynes, Strachey, Duncan Grant, Roger Fry, and Desmond McCarthy It was very interesting, particularly the people shown I did not know as much about Leonard, for instance, was a political weight in the Labor Party, albeit behind the scenes My only complaints were that L.E tended to reiterate his own themes about them a little too often a 3.5 stars This is a picture group biography microhistory of the heart of Bloomsbury the major players up through 1920 He includes the Woolfs, the Bells, Keynes, Strachey, Duncan Grant, Roger Fry, and Desmond McCarthy It was very interesting, particularly the people shown I did not know as much about Leonard, for instance, was a political weight in the Labor Party, albeit behind the scenes My only complaints were that L.E tended to reiterate his own themes about them a little too often and possibly even be a little patronizing On the other hand, he recognized as the stereotype of Bloomsbury does not their incredible work discipline and productivity, which combined with their genius, made them a formidable cultural power

    Maynard Keynes wrote, We were not aware that civilization was a thin and precarious crust erected by the personality and the will of a very few,and only maintained by rules and conventions skillfully put across and guilefully preserved The Bloomsbury Group certainly did their share as gracefully recounted by Leon Edel Are there modern groups of this stature Where was the scientist in the group

    Incredibly comprehensive overview of the principal members of the Bloomsbury group This book gives great insight into the dynamics of the group, the personal motivating factors of each member and how their personal lives impacted on their artistic output Definately a tantalising introduction to the group, making me want to further explore certain members oeuvre Much easier to visualise their ground breaking lifestyle and aesthetic ethos after having visited Charleston Farmhouse and Monk s Hou Incredibly comprehensive overview of the principal members of the Bloomsbury group This book gives great insight into the dynamics of the group, the personal motivating factors of each member and how their personal lives impacted on their artistic output Definately a tantalising introduction to the group, making me want to further explore certain members oeuvre Much easier to visualise their ground breaking lifestyle and aesthetic ethos after having visited Charleston Farmhouse and Monk s House in Sussex

    This is an excellent, scholarly study of the nine pricipal denizens of Bloomsbury In addition to informative discussions of each individual, the author presents an interesting portrait of Bloomsbury as a concept and a cultural entity There is much to be learned from this book.

    After 2 renewals and an overdue book fee, I still could not slog my way through this The subject matter is great, but the book itself was not up my alley At all.
