The moving story of the life and work of novelist Virginia Woolf, revealed through her own letters to those closest to her. The letters - at times witty and irreverent, at times melancholy and introspective – are possibly even more revealing for their insights into the complex personality of the novelist herself. "A true letter", she insisted, "should be like a film of wax pressed close to the graving of the mind". The book contains biographical notes on the main recipients of the letters, together with background information on Virginia Woolf's life and work. Frances Spalding's previous books include "British Art Since 1900" and biographies of the painters Roger Fry and Vanessa Bell. This book is beautifully illustrated with contemporary photographs and paintings, many by members of the Bloomsbury Group, such as Woolf's sister Vanessa Bell, Roger Fry and Duncan Grant.

Virginia Woolfs subtile Gesellschaftskomödie aus viktorianischer Zeit Katharine Hilbery, wohlerzogene Tochter aus der Londoner Oberschicht, ist standesgemäß und langweilig verlobt. Doch sie erliegt der Faszination des jungen Rechtsanwalts und sozialen Aufsteigers Ralph, der sie liebt, aber seinerseits von der Frauenrechtlerin Mary verehrt wird. Katharine entscheidet sich gegen die Konventionen ihrer Herkunft und für ihre Liebe zu Ralph. Ihre Cousine Cassandra schwärmt hingegen für Katharines Verlobten und verzehrt sich deshalb in Gewissensnöten. Spionierende Tanten, verpasste Rendezvous, Eifersucht und gekränkte Eitelkeiten können nicht verhindern, dass die Verliebten zueinander finden.

Virginia Woolf was one of the most significant literary figures of the twentieth century—a major literary stylist and a lyrical novelist whose stream-of-consciousness approach in iconic books such as Mrs Dalloway, To the Lighthouse, and Orlando would inspire generations of writers to follow. She was also one of the first to address the injustices of gender disparity and the ravages of World War I at home. Uncovering new details about Woolf’s life and the places she inhabited, this engaging biography offers fresh insights into her works and legacy, focusing on the ways place and imagination intertwine in her writing. Drawing on Woolf’s letters, journals, diaries, autobiographical essays, and fiction, Ira Nadel paints a portrait of the writer in situ, whether in the enclosed surroundings of Hyde Park Gate or the open and free-spirited environs of Gordon Square’s Bloomsbury. He shows how Woolf’s experimental style was informed by her own reading life and how her deeply sensitive understanding of history, narrative, art, and friendship were rendered in her prose. He explores the famous Bloomsbury group of intellectuals in which she was immersed as well as her relationships with fascinating figures such as Vita Sackville-West and Lady Ottoline Morrel. Nadel looks at Woolf’s attitudes toward sex and marriage, analyzes her uncertain social and political views, and, finally, offers a sensitive examination of her mental instabilities and the nervous breakdowns that would plague her for most of her life, up until her suicide in 1941. A moving account of an exceptional writer who ushered in a new era of literature, this biography perfectly captures the intricate relationship between art and life.

Die erste illustrierte Biografie von Frida Kahlo: Inspiriert von der Intensität Frida Kahlos und ihren bekanntesten Bildern erzählt die spanische Künstlerin María Hesse in einer reich illustrierten Biografie vom Lieben und Schaffen der mexikanischen Ikone. Ihre Zeichnungen, die mit jenen Frida Kahlos eine beinahe magische Symbiose eingehen, werfen ein ganz besonderes Licht auf dieses einzigartige Leben. Ein Körper, gezeichnet von Schmerz und Leidenschaft, eine Fantasie bevölkert von betörenden wie verstörenden Bildern, ein begeisterungsfähiger und beharrlicher Blick auf die Welt – Frida Kahlos Anziehungskraft ist nach wie vor ungebrochen. Mit einer unvergleichlichen Willenskraft trotze sie den Bürden, die ihr das Leben zumutete, lebte mit einem freien Geist, liebte mit offenem Herzen und schuf Kunstwerke von einer strahlenden Wirkmacht. Für die Weigerung, im Schatten ihrer großen Liebe Diego Rivera zu leben, und für ihren mutigen Bruch mit den gesellschaftlichen Konventionen wird Frida Kahlo noch heute auf der ganzen Welt verehrt.
