Bloomsbury and Modernism


Ulysses L. D'Aquila

This book is a study of the relationship between that remarkable set of writers and painters known as the Bloomsbury Group, and the complex of new ideas in aesthetics, psychology, philosophy and literature which came to be called Modernism. Bloomsbury and Modernism is focused primarily upon the writings of E.M. Forster, Lytton Strachey and Virginia Woolf, but it makes reference throughout to the other members of the group as well as to the advanced notions which inspired their work.
Contents: Intellectual and biographical background of Bloomsbury; Cambridge, London; - E.M. Forster and «the New Life» - Lytton Strachey's anti-Victorianism - Woolf's technical innovations and feminism.
