Summary
This anthology presents fifteen wide-ranging readings that trace the cultural, ideological and aesthetic facets of the Bloomsbury Group's development as a queer subculture. In addition to new essays by widely recognized Bloomsbury scholars, five important ground-breaking essays are republished here, including Carolyn Heilbrun's germinal 1968 essay on the sexual dissidence of the Bloomsbury Group and Christopher Reed's influential 1991 essay exposing homophobia among academic scholars writing about the group. Also included are rarely seen reproductions of Duncan Grant's work from the Charleston archives as well as Dora Carrington's work from archives and a private collection. Queer Bloomsbury provides substantive information on the queer philosophical and ethical underpinnings of the Bloomsbury Group
