Flush : A Biography (Oxford Worlds Classics) by Virginia Woolf

I lay in the garden and red the Browning love letters, and the figure oftheir dog made me laugh so I couldnt resist making him a Life.Throughout her career, Woolf invokes the animal world both directly andmetaphorically. She started to write a biography of Elizabeth Barrett Browningsspaniel after finishing The Waves, tracing the life of the spaniel from hiscountry origins, his puppyhood spent with the writer Mary Mitford, through hissheltered existence with Elizabeth Barrett in her sick room, and later travelsin Florence. But Flush is much more than a playful writers holiday. As wellas offering an exploration of a life of the senses free from the tyranny ofwords, Flush can be read as an allegorical testimony to the inscrutable,discarded, unrepresentable lives of the Victorian women poets, who were barelydiscussed or read in the 1930s. From a quite literally low point of view, Woolfexplores class and gender in Victorian London, with gently mocking humour.Charming yet also radical, Flush is a work of sensuous imagination, anapparently light text that opens up a range of questions concerning differencewhich are woven through the whole of Woolfs writing.
