About Bloomsbury Books, Ashland

Bloomsbury Books opened in 1980 and continues to be a showroom of carefully chosen literature and information. We don’t accept money from publishers for placement of books or reviews, and our reviews are objective and honest. The convenience of the internet has a great appeal, but we still believe it is an unduplicable experience to browse in an independent, brick-and-mortar bookstore like Bloomsbury Books. If you are local, ask us about our membership program.

About Our Name

The Bloomsbury Group was an informal group of writers, intellectuals and artists associated with the Bloomsbury district of London during the first half of the 20th century. Among its better known members were Virginia Woolf, E. M. Forster, Lytton Strachey and John Maynard Keynes, whose work has profoundly influenced literature, aesthetics, criticism, and economics to this day. Good company to be around, we think!

About Our Logo

Bloomsbury Books, Ashland OregonVirginia Woolf (1882-1941) was one of the foremost modernist literary figures of the twentieth century. She was a major figure in London literary circles and at the center of the Bloomsbury Group.  She was a major lyrical novelist as well as one of the most innovative linguists of her time. Her greatest literary gift was to take the banal and elevate it into works of great poetic intensity, employing experimental techniques to get at the psychological and emotional core of her characters. Her most famous works include the novels Mrs. Dalloway (1925), To the Lighthouse (1927), Orlando (1928) and Between the Acts (1941), as well as the influential Feminist Essay A Room of One’s Own (1929). The latter work created a literal space for women creating within a largely a male-dominated tradition.
