9780151787326: A Room of One's Own

"a woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fictionA" First published in 1929, A Room of One's Own is Virginia Woolf's pioneering work on women in literature. An accessible and fiercely astute work, Woolf's essay stands as one of the most famous pieces of feminist writing. It is a crystallisation of the intelligent analysis behind her novels, and confirms her as a genius and pioneer, not only of style, but of undeniable substance. Ranging from discussing Austen's pandering to a male writing style, to imagining the dreadful fate of Shakespeare's talented, intelligent (fictional) sister, Woolf makes the weighty topic an enjoyable journey through her imagination, filling in for the undocumented in female history, and exploring the loss to the literary landscape in her own entertaining, convincing prose.
