Cover of: Flush | Virginia Woolf

About the Book

A wonderfully creative and whimsical book, the biography of Elizabeth Barrett Browning's cocker spaniel. After spending his youth in the country, Flush was given to the invalid poet Elizabeth Barrett and learned to live a quiet live as her companion. Flush is jealous when Robert Browning captures Miss Barrett's attention, but eventually accepts him and is wildly happy when they all move to Italy. The lives of the poets through a dog's eyes--by Virginia Woolf, of all people! This is proof that she could write a happy book.

First Sentence

IT IS universally admitted that the family from which the subject of this memoir claims descent is one of the greatest antiquity.
