Description

Virginia Woolf figurehead of the Bloomsbury Group and an innovative writer whose experimental style and lyrical prose ensured her position as one of the most influential of modern novelists was also firmly anchored in the reality of the houses she lived in and those she visited regularly. Detailed and evocative accounts appear in her letters and diaries as well as in her fiction where they appear as backdrops or provide direct inspiration. Hilary Macaskill examines the houses that meant the most to Woolf including: 22 Hyde Park Gate London – where Virginia Woolf was born in 1882 Talland House St Ives Cornwall – the summer home of Virginia’s family until 1895 46 Gordon Square Bloomsbury London – the birthplace of the Bloomsbury Group – Virginia lived here from 1904 to 1912 Hogarth House Richmond London – where the newly married Woolfs set up home and founded the Hogarth Press Asheham House East Sussex – the summer home of the Woolfs 1912-1919 52 Tavistock Square London – a return to Bloomsbury the heart of London Monk’s House Rodmell East Sussex – where Virginia lived from 1919 until her death in 1941
