Dear Woolf Colleagues,

If one takes the time to read Leslie Stephen's essays over the course of his life as well as his many entries in the Dictionary of National Biography which he initiated and edited for over a decade, one finds a rather different persona from the one so often criticized as a tyrannical and maudlin father. In addition his letters in the two-volume Bicknell edition present a far more human version. Woolf herself acknowledged especially in her retrospective piece for The Times how significant his literary influence on her was.
