   schema:description ""Beautiful, witty and independent, Virginia did not want for admirers. The intervening period was crammed with romances and close friendships with men, varying in nature and depth. There were prolonged but ill-judged flirtations with the classical scholar Walter Headlam and her sister's husband Clive Bell, and loving friendships with the ground-breaking biographer Lytton Strachey and the enigmatic Saxon Sydney-Turner. There was straightforward courtship too, by the future cabinet minister Hilton Young, by Henry Lamb's less Byronic brother Walter, and by the married diplomat Sydney Waterlow. And a romance that never was, with the widely-adored poet Rupert Brooke. Traces of all the suitors would eventually appear in Woolf's work.""@en ;
   schema:description ""Most of these relationships have been relatively neglected by biographers, although the years in which they occurred - before Leonard and before the novels - were Woolf's formative years as a writer and as a woman. Using original research from letters, unpublished writings, interviews and personal reminiscences, Sarah M. Hall uncovers the backgrounds, characters and achievements of the suitors - all notable figures in their own right - and explores their importance to Virginia Woolf and to her books."--Jacket."@en ;
