    Relatively short, this accessible and well researched portrait of the Bloomsbury group is enjoyable and informative and although it doesn t offer any new revelations or discoveries is a perfect introduction to anyone new to the group as well as being a readable overview for those familiar with this extraordinary group of people.

    Bloomsbury Women Distinct Figures in Life and Art by Jan Marsh 3 stars 6 out of 10This is a re publication by Endeavour Press, with the original edition having been published by Pavilion Books in 1995.I was interested in reading this book, since I have recently been reading about Vita Sackville West.Although the book is entitled Bloomsbury Women , it also contains a lot of information about Bloomsbury Men , with all of their stories intertwined I would have preferred there to have been of a spe [...]

    This is an excellent book that accurately and succinctly covers the lives of the female Bloomsbury artists and the Post Impressionist movement that took place during the early years of their careers Vanessa Bell s art is contrasted with that of her male peers, including her partner, Duncan Grant and her lover, Roger Fry, and her development as a painter and decorative designer is well documented Bell s relationship with her sister, Virginia Woolf, had a huge impact on Virginia and this is covere [...]

    This is a relatively short and compressed biography of the ever fascinating Bloomsbury Group which gives detail than but still skims through the kind of detail available in individual biographies and the volumes of letters, journals and memoirs that are available The title is somewhat of a misnomer since this doesn t particularly concentrate on the women any than similar books, and takes a cool look at the men and various love affairs that both bonded and separated this network of writers, art [...]

    This slim volume, first published in 1995 and re released serves an introduction to the women of Bloomsbury If you know little about this loosely formed group of creatives and visionaries from the early 19th century, this book will guide in you with its short chapters on the women who were so central to the ideas of the group from, of course Virginia Woolf and her sister the painter Vanessa Woolf, to the obscure painter Dora Carrington, who lived in a life long sexless union with the homosexual [...]

    What a disappointment Not only is this book as much about the men of this influential set as it is about the women very misleading title but Jan Marsh really does not get under the skin of the women, in particular Vanessa and Virginia the latter s depression and suicide barely mentioned Bizarre.

    A fascinating book about the women of the Bloomsbury Group.These talented free spirited women were ahead of their time in some respects, on a par with the noted men including Rossetti the artist.A great history of a most unusual, group of people.Very highly recommended.I was given a digital copy of this book by the publisher Endeavour via Netgalley in return for an honest unbiased review.

    Detailed account of The Bloomsbury Group Author needed an editor as tended to be all over the place in time periods and facts Artists and writers suddenly mentioned with no former knowledge of who they were and how they necessarily fitted in Needs a cast of characters.

    An excellent and insightful introduction into the Bloomsbury phenomenon ARC provided by publisher via NetGalley

    A clear, concise overview of Bloomsbury A good range of plates illustrate the text A useful, easy read.

    An interesting book about fascinating lives, that gave a good sense of the relationships between the members of the Bloomsbury Group I felt like it should have been longer though, as some parts, especially transitions between people, places and time, were rushed and, as a result, the book felt a little disconnected in places.
