The letters of Vita Sackville-West to Virginia Woolf by V Sackville-West( Book )

39 editions published between 1984 and 2004 in English and Italian and held by 1,274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Vita Sackville-West and Virginia Woolf met at a dinner party given by Clive Bell in London on December 14, 1922. Their love affair grew out of an instant friendship. Virginia confided her impressions of Vita to her diary: "She is a pronounced Sapphist, & may...have an eye on me, old though I am. Nature might have sharpened her faculties. Snob as I am, I trace her passions 500 years back, & they become romantic to me, like old yellow wine."" "Vita was quite taken with Virginia as well. She wrote to her husband Harold Nicholson: "I simply adore Virginia Woolf, and so would you. You would fall quite flat before her charm and personality...Mrs Woolf is so simple: she does give the impression of something big. She is utterly unaffected...At first you think she is plain, then a sort of spiritual beauty imposes itself on you, and you find a fascination in watching her... She is both detached and human, silent till she wants to say something, and then says it supremely well. She is quite old. I've rarely taken such a fancy to anyone, and I think she likes me. At least she's asked me to Richmond where she lives. Darling, I have quite lost my heart."" "The Letters of Vita Sackville-West to Virginia Woolf contains over 500 letters, both from Vita to Virginia and from Virginia to Vita in reply, a monument to a passionate relationship that lasted until Woolf's death in 1941."--BOOK JACKET

Mitchell Leaska unearths much new and disturbing material that illuminates both Woolf's life and her work. He recounts the hard realities of her early life - the succession of tragic and untimely deaths, the illnesses, the stretches of madness - as they emerged, infallibly transformed by Woolf's imagination in her iridescent novels, letters, and diaries. Leaska's unprecedented reliance on the Woolf archives leads to fresh revelations about the troubled lives of Virginia's parents. Plunging beneath the dense lyrical surface of Woolf's narratives, he uncovers the dissonances generated by her parents' relationship and the deeper story of how she sought to create harmony out of such profound divisions

A content analysis of the difference in critical perception of English and American critics of the ambiguous homoerotic elements in Herman Melville's "Billy Budd, Sailor (An Inside Narrative)." by Roger Brown( )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The method employed in the analyzation of the essays is based on MIDD, The Modes of Inquiry Discourse Descriptors, developed by Carl P. Schmidt and modified by the writer. These "descriptors" or "categories" are ways in which the critic focuses his attention and that which he focuses it upon. The first half of each essay is a compilation of sentences from the critique that demonstrate a particular category. Reading these sentences a reader gets a sense of the article and of the critics stance. The second half of each essay is an interpretation of the sentences compiled and the critic's approach to the homoerotic elements. The total number of critical responses in each category are tabulated in The Appendices and the results are used to aid in the discussion of the English and American difference
