Vita Sackville-West by Mary Ann Caws

Book Description

This volume provides a wide-ranging collection of the writing of noted Bloomsbury figure Vita Sackville-West. One of the most well known lesbian authors of the 20th century, Sackville-West was a central figure among the Bloomsbury modernists, and had a torrid love affair with Virginia Woolf. She wrote in an astounding variety of genres, including travel writing, poetry, fiction, and essays, and is probably best known for her novels, "The Edwardians" and "All Passion Spent", and aristocratic writings about English country gardens. This book collects a wide variety of her works, over half of which, including her travel notebooks, her diaries, some short stories, and her intimate dream notebook, have never been published.
