Virginia Woolf's humorous biography of Elizabeth Barrett Browning's spaniel is charming yet also radical. A work of sensuous imagination, it opens up a range of questions about class, society, and cultural attitudes which are woven throughout the whole of Woolf's writing.
"Nothing could be more handsome than this new, critical edition of the major works of Virginia Woolf. This is scholarship at a premium". Notes and Queries
From the Inside Flap
First published in 1933, Flush is the lively story of Elizabeth Barrett Browning's cocker spaniel, and a glimpse into the life of his owner.
From the Back Cover
Virginia Woolf′s biography of Elizabeth Barrett Brownings spaniel was what she called "a little escapade", begun to "ease my brain" in the wake of The Waves (1931). The intensities of that most demanding fiction were soon supplanted by canine psychology and the art of anthropomorphism.
For all its fun and frivolity, Flush is none the less a work seriously inclined to mock and question the genre of biography, as did Woolf′s earlier, more ambitious, and more widely read jeu d′esprit, Orlando (1928), and was written in part as a joke at the expense of the biographer Lytton Strachey. Like Orlando it too bespeaks its author′s feminism.
In this new edition, which uses as copy–text the second issue of the first English edition and reproduces the original illustrations, Elizabeth Steele maps the events that inspired the book. She provides a wealth of information about its writing and reception – concerning fact and fiction, and Woolf′s views on the art of biography – and details its publication history.
