In A Room of One's Own and Three Guineas, Virginia Woolf considers with energy and wit 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.

Review:

"One realises afresh the full meaning of originality, the magic of the mind which plays around concrete facts as though they were all spirit. And when it is finished it is with a renewed sense of zest and stimulus that one takes up life again and looks anew at objects which before were only ordinary." (Guardian)

"Brilliant interweaving of personal experience, imaginative musing and political clarity" (Kate Mosse)

"Achingly relevant" (Natasha Walter Guardian)

Book Description:

Woolf exposes the prejudices and constraints against which women writers struggled for centuries, and argues for a more equal literary establishment
