"A Room of One's Own" is a feminist essay, published in 1929, which argued that women would never be able to write well and freely until they had the privacy and independence implied by a room of one's own. The essay pays tribute to women writers of the past, to women's achievements in the form of the novel, and projects a future in which women would be enabled to become not only novelists but poets. "Three Guineas" is a companion piece which engages the same themes. This edition includes the photographs which were originally published as part of "Three Guineas", showing men wearing various uniforms and looking at once sinister and absurd. These photographs were conceived as an integral part of the book.

Virginia Woolf, born in 1882, was a major modernist novelist and the centre of the inter-war Bloomsbury Group. Between 1925 and 1931 she produced her finest masterpieces, from Mrs Dalloway to the poetic and highly experimental novel The Waves. She also maintained an astonishing output of literary criticism, journalism and biography, including A Room of One's Own (1929), a passionate feminist essay. Suffering from depression, she drowned herself in the River Ouse in 1941.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.'
