Bloomsbury Group

By Atulsharmasharma

Bloomsbury GroupThe Bloomsbury Group — or Bloomsbury Set — was an enormously influential group of associated English writers, intellectuals, philosophers and artists, the best known members of which included  Virginia Woolf , John Maynard Keynes , E. M. Forster  and Lytton Strachey. This loose collective of friends and relatives lived, worked or studied together near Bloomsbury , London, during the first half of the 20th century.
According to Ian Ousby, "although its members denied being a group in any formal sense, they were united by an abiding belief in the importance of the arts". Their works and outlook deeply influenced literature, aesthetics, criticism, and economics as well as modern attitudes towards feminism, pacifism, and sexuality.
