Mrs. Woolf has received three separate requests for a guinea - one for a women's college building fund, one for a society promoting the employment of professional women, and one to help prevent war and "protect culture, and intellectual liberty." The book is a threefold answer to these requests - and as Mrs. Woolf examines the three cause and points out that they are inseparably the same, she declares a new tactic of feminine purpose.

Review:

"Woolf's goal is not merely freedom and equality for race and sex and people; it is human civilization, a civilization which must be better, sounder, and surer than any we know. Toward so broad a purpose must we move if the human mind and spirit are to stand fearless in this world."--The New York Times

From the Back Cover:

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.

Book Description Mariner Books, United States, 1963. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. "Though we see the same world, we see it through different eyes." Setting out to answer the question "How are we to prevent war?" Virginia Woolf argues that the inequalities between women and men must first be addressed. Framing her arguments in the form of a letter, Woolf wittily ponders to whom--among the many who have requested it--she will donate a guinea. As she works out her reasons for which causes she will support, Woolf articulates a vision of peace and political culture as radical now as it was when first published on the eve of the Second World War. A founding text of cultural theory, Three Guineas can also help us understand the twenty-first-century realities of endless war justified by "unreal loyalties." "Witty, scornful, deeply serious.If you are a woman, or anti-war, or both, read it."--The New Yorker. Seller Inventory # AAS9780156901772
