A genuine outsider …

… This Rare Spirit: A Life of Charlotte Mew by Julia Copus - review by Joanna Kavenna. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

She disliked literary parties, rebuffed influential people, including Ottoline Morrell, and had ‘an abhorrence of self-promotion’. She lived in Gordon Square without ever knowing her close neighbour Virginia Woolf or other members of the Bloomsbury Group.
