Virginia Woolf's passionate essay on women and fiction is one of the great polemics of our age. Full of wit as well as anger, this highly influential little book has given heart to women readers and writers ever since. She lays bare the structure of male privilege and female exclusion - from independence, income, education - she evokes the spirit of past writers, of lost poets of the sixteenth century, of novelists like Charlotte Bronte, burnt by rage, who died 'at war with her lot...young, cramped and thwarted'. If women had a room of their own and five hundred pounds a year, Shakespeare's sister, if born again, would at last find it possible to live, and write her poetry.
