Carrington's Letters

Author(s): Dora Carrington

Biography | New Non-Fiction

Known only by her surname, Dora Carrington was the star of her year at the Slade School of Fine Art, and was friends with some of the greatest minds of her day, including Virginia Woolf, Rosamund Lehmann and Maynard Keynes. For over a decade she was the companion of homosexual writer Lytton Strachey, and killed herself, stricken without him, when he died in 1932. Though she never achieved the fame her early career promised, in her determination to live life according to her own nature - especially in relation to her work and her fluid attitude to sex, gender and sexuality - she fought battles that remain familiar and urgent today. Now, through her passionate, playful and honest letters, we can encounter the maverick artist and compelling personality afresh and in her own words.
