Three Guineas is written as a series of letters in which Woolf ponders the efficacy of donating to various causes to prevent war. In reflecting on her situation as the ‘daughter of an educated man’ in 1930s England, Woolf challenges liberal orthodoxies and marshals vast research to make discomforting and still-challenging arguments about the relationship between gender and violence, and about the pieties of those who fail to see their complicity in war-making. This pacifist-feminist essay is a classic whose message resonates loudly in our contemporary global situation. Adeline Virginia Woolf was an English author, essayist, publisher, and writer of short stories, regarded as one of the foremost modernist literary figures of the twentieth century. During the inter-war period, Woolf was a significant figure in London literary society and a member of the Bloomsbury Group. Her most famous works include the novels Mrs Dalloway, To the Lighthouse and Orlando, and the book-length essay A Room of One’s Own, with its famous dictum, “A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction.”

The highly controversial Three Guineas was Virginia Woolf's most explicit statement of her feminism. Forming part of the prestigious Shakespeare Head Press series of Woolf's works, this authoritative new edition includes her carefully considered selection of photographs, her discursive endnotes and extensive new annotations of her references and allusions.
In an illuminating introduction, editor Naomi Black guides the reader through this allusive, highly artful book, discussing its structure and argument and tracing the history of its composition and critical reception. She analyses the text as a representation of Woolf's feminism, including the way in which the book's form subverts male conventions of scholarship. All variants and emendations are listed, but the text itself is free of interventions.
