Advert Description

Oxfam Bookshop Tavistock An imaginative biography of Elizabeth Barrett Browning's cocker spaniel, this is a cross-genre blend of fiction and nonfiction by Virginia Woolf published in 1933. Commonly read as a modernist consideration of city life seen through the eyes of a dog, "Flush" serves as a harsh criticism of the supposedly unnatural ways of living in the city. The figure of Elizabeth Barrett Browning in the text is often read as an analogue for other female intellectuals, like Woolf herself, who suffered from illness, feigned or real, as a part of their status as female writers. Charming illustrations by Vanessa Bell of Elizabeth Barrett Browning in bed with Flush and Miss Mitford outside room. Rear illustration shows view of London from the bedroom window. Reprint. Book is in good condition for its age, albeit missing dust jacket. Green cloth boards with gold lettering. Slight foxing to both endpapers otherwise clean and unmarked.
