Description
Was Virginia Woolf mad and suicidal, or betrayed and broken to the point of taking her own life? Irene Coates argues the latter case and points to Leonard Woolf as the traitorous figure who first married Virginia, then abandoned her. With forensic precision, she meticulously and brilliantly dissects the amazingly charged relationship between the two people who were at the heart of the Bloomsbury Group. The conclusion Coates comes to is stunning, laying at Leonard Woolf's feet the responsibility for slowly undoing his wife with his pessimism, superiority, repression, and hypercritical attitude, all the while holding himself out to be the selfless husband caring for a mad genius of a wife.
