The informal association of writers, artists and intellectuals popularly known as ‘the Bloomsbury Group’ were at the heart of English modernism, and continue to fascinate, as much through their unconventional private lives as through their writings. This new CD from the British Library mines the BBC archives to present all of the group’s major figures talking in their own words. Highlights include Virginia Woolf talking about the importance of language, Leonard Woolf’s who’s who of the Bloomsburys, Duncan Grant discussing the infamous ‘Dreadnought’ hoax and Elizabeth Bowen describing legendary Bloomsbury parties.
