Selected Letters of Leslie Stephen

Volume I: 1864–1882
Volume II: 1882–1904

Edited by John W. Bicknell

“John Bicknell’s two volume edition of Selected Letters of Leslie Stephen is indispensable for all scholars interested in Virginia Woolf’s life and works. Additionally, the volumes will prove essential for scholars of Victorian Studies, the history of ideas, and for cultural historians. . . . The man who emerges from these volumes is large and large-minded, adorable at times, but always courageous and unflinchingly honest. Finishing these volumes the reader can see why Leslie Stephen simultaneously enraged and charmed his children, earned the undying love of his male colleagues, and earned the position he achieved as a Victorian man of letters. For the truthfulness and balance of the portrait of Leslie Stephen that they represent, these volumes will prove worthy of all the praise they are sure to receive.” —Woolf Studies Annual

“A triumph of scholarship.” —Spectator

John W. Bicknell is a professor emeritus of Drew University. He has published articles in Virginia Quarterly Review, Victorian Studies, and Journal of Modern Literature, and a chapter, “The Unbelievers,” in Victorian Prose Writers: A Guide to Research.
