    One thought on “Recollections of Virginia Woolf by Her Contemporaries”

    1. I must admit, I'm a little disappointed. Reading these essays, it becomes immediately apparent that the contributors had much difficulty in attempting to describe a woman who was both a towering genius and a frail human being.Rather than make any effort to reconcile the two, most of the authors opted to compartmentalize. There's the "wise, strong" Virginia, whose literary achievements are unparalleled. And then there's the "sick" Virginia who drowned herself, the raving madwoman who had somehow [...]

    2. I've been reading this one alongside Hermione Lee's biography of Woolf, and they've made quite the pair. Lee's methodology seems almost to perform a sort of representational fragmentation (inasmuch as she argues that the sort of 'knowing' we tend to assume in understanding a person is always fictive--a person can never be exhaustively represented by another), so reading these recollections--where people do try to capture VW in a half-dozen or fewer pages--offered a very different vision of Woolf [...]

    3. Would that I ever have friends who remember me so fondly and keenly, and with so much respect.Even in the negligible pieces there are some solid gold anecdotes. Leonard recounting the story of when Henry James came to tea when VW was young, and tipped over backwards in his chair, and still finished his sentence from the floor? Genius. Anything about the exchanges between VW and Walpole? Genius.

    4. These recollections from friends and contemporaries of Virginia Woolf leave us with a wonderfully multi-faceted portrait of Virginia Woolf, we see her here as a friend an acquaintance, an employer, sister-in-law and wife. In his introduction Michael Holroyd, reminds us of the salient facts of Virginia Woolf’s life and death in his brief biography. From here we move straight to the testimonies of the people who knew her. Joan Russell Noble has collected together a raft of different voices, who [...]

    5. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It presents generally brief yet insightful protraits of Virginia Woolf by many of those who knew her best. It was interesting to read the number of instances of the various contributors noting the same particular aspects of Mrs. Woolf's appearance, character and personality. As one would expect, opinions and appreciations of her work were a bit more divergent. The book concludes with a piece by E.M. Forster, who, as he states, "ew her ever since she started writin [...]
