    One thought on “Bloomsbury”

    1. This is not about the Bloomsbury set as a group of people, but rather about a few shared ideals that loosely united them against the intellectual climate of their time. Readers interested in the history of ideas will be better pleased than those looking for biographical detail. It is let down slightly by the author's need to defend his subjects against detractors in long forgotten quarrels. Wonderful pictures.

    2. Short, interesting, but rambles a bit - a series of essays rather than a coherent whole. Worth looking at just for the photographs if you are at all interested in the Bloomsbury Group. Occasional gems, such as: 'e nineteen-twenties made it and broke it; it was then that it soared, burst in lazy scintillating splendour and slowly expired in still glowing fragments.'

    3. An interesting and intimate portrait of the members of the Bloomsbury group. It mainly focuses on the period up to and just after WWI. Some interesting insights by a person who had a personal connection with it's members. One for Bloomsbury enthusiasts.
