Bloomsbury has long divided opinion. To some they are a privileged elite, unoriginal and self-absorbed. To others they are at they were at the vanguard of modernism, decades ahead of the social, moral and artistic codes of the day. Leonard Woolf wrote that the Bloomsbury group were “A largely imaginary group of persons… with largely imaginary characteristics". This series of talks strips back the layers of mythology surrounding the Bloomsbury group and goes back to source. This is the Bloomsbury group in their own words.

This mini-series of talks will explore extracts from books, essays, articles, letters and diaries written by different members of the Bloomsbury group. These are informal and relaxed sessions, open to all, with no need to read anything in advance. Simply log in, settle down with your tea or coffee, and immerse yourself in literature, thoughts and ideas with our reader-in-residence Holly Dawson. You will be sent an email in advance of the talk with a link, login details and extracts to read along with.

 

Week 5

Bodies

What role did the body play in the thinking, painting and writing of the Bloomsbury Group? In this session, we explore the corporeal realm of the Bloomsbury Group - from body image and nudity to illness and death. We will have a particular look at illness amongst its members - how it was experienced, how it was treated, and how it informed the course of their lives.
