summary Flush A Biography ↠ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Eaders a taste of the Classics' huge range and diversity with works from around the world and across the centuries including fables decadence heartbreak tall tales satire ghosts battles and elephan. In 2018 I found Virginia Woolf s Flush and added it to my to read list but somewhere I thought I read that Elizabeth Barrett Browning s Flush had died around 14 years old being superstitious enough I wanted to not read it for a couple years I decided early this year 2019 in reading this during my May Blondie s birthday dog reads which I started doing annually several years ago Why was I so concerned about Flush s age at death At that time our little dog Blondie was alive and nearing Flush s age Did my changing it to this May reads have an effect I am sure not but in the back of my mind I wonder Blondie would have made it to her 15 year tomorrow May 16 but she died 14 years and around 11 months As I read this book and as I read my other dog reads I think of her and what wonderful beings dogs are in our livesThis is my favorite Virginia Woolf book so far and as I read this story about Elizabeth s Flush it is easy to see why dogs are so part of our lives and contribute to our happiness as we do theirs Woolf does a wonderful job seeing life through Flush s eyes and all he had to give up in his life to be a true companion but what he gained also in returned love The story starts as he is a puppy gifted from writer Mary Mitford to her friend Elizabeth Barrett The change in his life and the changes he would further see as Elizabeth becomes friends with Mr Browning Woolf takes several uotes from Elizabeth s letters to give us a better understanding of her feelings for Flush Virginia at the end of this Kindle edition brings through several notes a better understanding of many things described in the story with being stated Flush was actually kidnapped 3 times but in the book it was once This dog kidnapping was a common occurrence back then and I remember in Ouida s Puck that fictitious dog being kidnapped in London too Virginia made us feel what Flush felt during the whole miserable ordeal and afterwardsWoolf shows the relationship between owner and her dog but also of Elizabeth s life in Wimpole Street but her married life too This is indeed a favorite of mine and looking through the eyes of Flush had me thinking about Blondie and all the other dogs in my life It certainly is a special relationship that is truly worth it even when your loved one is gone you had had the love that can never be taken from you heart Below I uoted from a poetry site Elizabeth s poem on FlushTo Flush My DogBY ELIZABETH BARRETT BROWNINGLOVING friend the gift of oneWho her own true faith hath runThrough thy lower nature Be my benediction saidWith my hand upon thy headGentle fellow creature Like a lady s ringlets brownFlow thy silken ears adownEither side demurelyOf thy silver suited breastShining out from all the restOf thy body purelyDarkly brown thy body isTill the sunshine striking thisAlchemize its dulness When the sleek curls manifoldFlash all over into goldWith a burnished fulnessUnderneath my stroking handStartled eyes of hazel blandKindling growing larger Up thou leapest with a springFull of prank and curvettingLeaping like a chargerLeap thy broad tail waves a light Leap thy slender feet are brightCanopied in fringesLeap those tasselled ears of thineFlicker strangely fair and fineDown their golden inchesYet my pretty sportive friendLittle is t to such an endThat I praise thy rareness Other dogs may be thy peersHaply in these drooping earsAnd this glossy fairnessBut of thee it shall be saidThis dog watched beside a bedDay and night unweary Watched within a curtained roomWhere no sunbeam brake the gloomRound the sick and drearyRoses gathered for a vaseIn that chamber died apaceBeam and breeze resigning This dog only waited onKnowing that when light is goneLove remains for shiningOther dogs in thymy dewTracked the hares and followed throughSunny moor or meadow This dog only crept and creptNext a languid cheek that sleptSharing in the shadowOther dogs of loyal cheerBounded at the whistle clearUp the woodside hieing This dog only watched in reachOf a faintly uttered speechOr a louder sighingAnd if one or two uick tearsDropped upon his glossy earsOr a sigh came double Up he sprang in eager hasteFawning fondling breathing fastIn a tender troubleAnd this dog was satisfiedIf a pale thin hand would glideDown his dewlaps sloping Which he pushed his nose withinAfter platforming his chinOn the palm left openThis dog if a friendly voiceCall him now to blyther choiceThan such chamber keepingCome out praying from the door Presseth backward as beforeUp against me leapingTherefore to this dog will ITenderly not scornfullyRender praise and favour With my hand upon his headIs my benediction saidTherefore and for everAnd because he loves me soBetter than his kind will doOften man or womanGive I back love againThan dogs often take of men Leaning from my HumanBlessings on thee dog of minePretty collars make thee fineSugared milk make fat thee Pleasures wag on in thy tail Hands of gentle motion failNever to pat thee Downy pillow take thy headSilken coverlid besteadSunshine help thy sleeping No fly s buzzing wake thee up No man break thy purple cupSet for drinking deep inWhiskered cats arointed flee Sturdy stoppers keep from theeCologne distillations Nuts lie in thy path for stonesAnd thy feast day macaroonsTurn to daily rations Mock I thee in wishing weal Tears are in my eyes to feelThou art made so straightlyBlessing needs must straighten too Little canst thou joy or doThou who lovest greatlyYet be blessed to the heightOf all good and all delightPervious to thy nature Only loved beyond that lineWith a love that answers thineLoving fellow creature
