    1. i finished this thick collection off in a day, unable to interrupt my eavesdropping on virginia and vita, no matter how i tried i sensed that this was dangerous territory, that in watching dual performances of idealized selves fall in love and flirt and fuck and fight, i would surely find myself heartsore and longing it is true i think of vita, her small lips, her giant eyes, her young, exuberant devotion and admiration and i have the chest pains of a living crush i think of quiet virginia, the [...]

    2. Look, I am still super annoyed with the editors of this collection, but the letters that are here are great Review to come Original Ordered Vita s letters to various people, these letters arrived first You know what sucks Virginia s letters are only excerpted from Who the hell thought THAT was a good plan It s maddening Were there copyright issues Either way LAME Guess I ll have to order VW s letters from the era

    3. Vita and Virginia met in December of 1922, and not long after they begun a friendship, that turned into an intimacy at times sexual, but most of the time not that would last until Virginia s suicide in 1941.Their letters to each other bear witness to this intimacy Here they share everyday events, thoughts on writing, on books their own and others , but also a longing for the other There s a case to be made that what Vita and Virginia felt for each other transcended the normal affair one would ha [...]

    4. Yes, I felt like an emotional voyeur through all 400 pages what s worse this is the second time I ve read them Collected in this book are all of the surviving letters that Vita Sackville West sent to Virginia Woolf and excerpts of some of Virginia Woolf s letters to her over the twenty years they knew each other The letters, as well as the information the editors provide from diaries, show the twists and turns in the twenty year relationship between the two writers, the changes from friendship t [...]

    5. Oh my, I hardly have words for this It was an extremely exquisit pleasure to take a peek at their lives through the letters while constantly feeling a little like a voyeur, reading words only meant for one other person and I feel so much richer for their experiences.I wish they had been able to include of Virginia s letters the fact that they often printed merely a handful of lines made me sad and was rather frustrating, though I understand of course, that these were mainly Vita s letters I do [...]

    6. I borrowed this primarily because of two letters by Vita Sackville West that were excerpted in the Lapham s Quarterly issue on Eros this one to Virginia Woolf and this one to Harold Nicholson Suffice to say they impressed on me greatly.I d read Orlando A Biography a while ago and enjoyed it without being much moved I m interested to reread it now and see how my perception may have changed I ll be keen to get the corresponding collection of Virginia Woolf s letters too as her responses are only e [...]

    7. The connection of these two amazing women, the love they shared, their thoughts on each others writings, the struggles for acceptance and inner peace, the fall outs, the all ins.

    8. As a big Virginia Woolf fan i wanted to read her letters with Vita for a very long time and I was not disappointed I got to experience a very personal and vulnerable side of the author i admire, a human stripped down version of her At times especially at the beginning it feels like a travel book with all of Vita s descriptions of the various countries she resides and while she argues that she cannot communicate real experience, her communications are as real as possible As the letters and their [...]

    9. Quel plaisir et quel privil ge que de pouvoir lire les changes de ces deux brillantes femmes et crivaines Chaque invitation d ner est dr le et joueuse, chaque description du paysage est contemplative et transper ante, chaque occasion est un pr texte pour philosopher sur la litt rature et la po sie Les deux correspondantes sont la fois spontan es et appliqu es dans leur style, ce qui nous donne l impression de p n trer leur intimit tout en lisant un texte riche et travaill M me dans la traduction [...]

    10. So lovely and engaging I often get bored with reading other famous people s correspondence, but not with these two It is hard for me, after all, to ever get bored with anything involving Virginia Woolf Letters about life, society, deep and yet changeable love, affairs, pet names, spaniels, oft forgotten husbands they thrill and enchant.

    11. An absolutely compelling book of real friendship and love that lasts a lifetime And, who doesn t love a tragic ending

    12. I was really fascinated and charmed by this peek into Vita and Virginia s relationship, from the mundane of scheduling visits and inquiring after the others health, to pet names and inside jokes, hilarious and witty asides, and gossip It felt very real, and could recognize elements found in my own close relationships It also made me yearn a bit for the romantic days of letter writing, though I am a terrible correspondent, even on email It did leave me a bit unsated, however This definitely does [...]

    13. Ever since I read excerpts of the letters online, they ve taken hold of me and never let me go I ve been in the process of reading and re reading this book ever since I got it I can t imagine of two interesting women or a fascinating love affair While I usually find lesbian correspondence interesting for historical reasons, or due to their significance in the canon of lesbian literature, Vita and Virgina manage to spin a perfect, insular romance of their very own, completely unique unmatched b [...]

    14. An incredible arc through their years of loving each other reminders of the secret ways that loves change and sometimes fail to match up Through all the letters, Woolf remains the mysterious one, and I ached in the moments when I could feel just how jealous or hurt she was, but when showing that jealously or need was too terrifying to consider More than anything else revealed by the correspondence though, the centrality of class and economics in making lesbian love possible was staggering It bec [...]

    15. I was prepared for boredom and possible dislike of this book and its literary letter writers I confess to not being able to read Virginia Woolf s novels without throwing them down, half read, in a fit of anger at her pretentious prose Sacrilege Maybe But born out of impatience at the effort demanded of the reader to unravel the author s meaning from her sentences Her letters, however, are another matter They proved a revelation She comes across as playful, tender and grounded for someone often d [...]

    16. Unfinished I realize I do not like Vita Sackville West I adore Virginia Woolf the writer V.W the person would have been difficult to get to know I think , but not this woman who adored her All I can say about her letters is ugh.

    17. There s something very comforting and home y about their letters The rapid little notes that came as soon as WWII set in and you, the reader, are aware of Virginia s impending suicide, are particularly unsettling.

    18. I absolutely loved this book It gave me such insight into both of their lives and into their love for each other It has inspired me and I will continue to read and learn about both of them.

    19. It was disappointing that only selections from Virginia s letters are there I assume it has something to do with copyrights.

    20. Great great great reading Such valuable insight in most personal moments of VW life Not to be missed Never too late to read it And again.

    21. A lovely read Certainly improved my understanding of the relationship between these two amazing women, and I d highly recommend that anyone interested in Woolf s life read this book.

    22. Virginia comes out the star in the collection of letters, of course, but don t miss Mitchell Leaska s excellent introduction.

    23. Virginia Woolf s love affair and friendship with Vita Sackville West is marvellously chronicled in these vivid, affectionate letters Made me wish for the days of two postal deliveries.

    24. I missed of Virginia s letters and responses But I adore these two ladies relationship an incredible amount.

    25. edited letters really lowered my rating because of this VW s letters seemed cut short oh because they were.
