Georgian Bloomsbury completes the literary history of Old Bloomsbury that began with Victorian Bloomsbury (1987) and continued with Edwardian Bloomsbury (1994). Covering the years between the First Post-Impressionist Exhibition and World War I, the book describes and analyzes interrelated literary works by Roger Fry, Desmond MacCarthy, Clive Bell, E.M. Forster, Lytton Strachey, Leonard Woolf, and Virginia Woolf. The works considered include fiction, criticism essays, and polemics as well as autobiography, journalism, and literary history that members of the Bloomsbury Group wrote between 1910 and 1914. The history opens with an account of Bloomsbury's literary post-impressionism, continues with an account of E.M. Forster's pre-war Georgian writings including Maurice and then discusses Lytton Strachey's literary history of French Literature. After a chapter on Bloomsbury's Georgian Journalism the literary history of Old Bloomsbury concludes with a discussion of Virginia Woolf's first novel, The Voyage Out, and Leonard Woolf's last novel, The Wise Virgins.
