9780099734314: A Room of One's Own: AND Three Guineas (Vintage Classics)

In these texts, Virginia Woolf considers the implications of the historical exclusion of women from education and from economic independence. In "A Room of One's Own" (1929), she examines the work of past women writers, and looks ahead to a time when women's creativity will not be hampered by poverty, or by oppression. In "Three Guineas" (1938), however, Woolf argues that women's historical exclusion offers them the chance to form a political and cultural identity which could challenge the drive towards fascism and war.

About the Author:

Virginia Woolf is by reputation one of the foremost modernist literary figures of the twentieth century. Morag Shiach is at Queen Mary and Westfield College, University of London.

Review:

'Together these ten volumes make an attractive and reasonably priced (the volumes vary between L3.99 and L4.99) working edition of Virginia Woolf's best-known writing. One can only hope that their success will prompt World's Classics to add her other essays to the series in due course.' Elisabeth Jay, Westminster College, Oxford, Review of English Studies, Vol. XLV, No. 178, May '94

Book Description Vintage Publishing, United Kingdom, 2000. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. WITH AN INTRODUCTION, PLUS EXTENSIVE NOTES AND REFERENCES BY HERMIONE LEE. This volume combines for the first time in paperback two books by Virginia Woolf which are among the greatest contributions to feminist literature this century. Together they form a brilliant attack on Patriarchy and sexual inequality. A ROOM OF ONE S OWN, first published in 1929, is a witty, urbane and persuasive argument against the intellectual subjection of women, particularly women writers. The sequal was published in 1938 as THREE GUINEAS - a passionate and much more strongly charged polemic which draws a startling comparison between the tyrannous hypocrisy of the Victorian patriarchal system and the evils of fascism.

Book Description Vintage. 1 Paperback(s), 2001. soft. Book Condition: New. In 1928, Virginia Woolf delivered two college lectures that were expanded and published the following year as A Room of One's Own. Woolf imagines Shakespeare with a sister in every way his equal in genius and talent, but for want of two essential freedoms denied most female Shakespeares: an income and a room of one's own in which to write. Three Guineas is Woolf's most explicit statement of her feminism, inspired by three requests she received for a gift of one guinea—one for a women's college building fund, one for a society promoting the employment of professional women, and one to help prevent war and "protect culture, and intellectual liberty." 294.
