about

A Room of One's Own is an extended essay by Virginia Woolf. First published on 24 October 1929, the essay was based on a series of lectures she delivered at Newnham College and Girton College, two women's colleges at Cambridge University in October 1928. While this extended essay in fact employs a fictional narrator and narrative to explore women both as writers of and characters in fiction, the manuscript for the delivery of the series of lectures, titled "Women and Fiction", and hence the essay, are considered non-fiction. The essay is generally seen as a feminist text, and is noted in its argument for both a literal and figural space for women writers within a literary tradition dominated by patriarchy.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Powerhouse Read What an amazing essay. Virginia Woolf combines the best of literary techniques to write a persuasive and thought-provoking treatise, in the form of an extended essay, about women's right to equal education, and the rightful position of women as writers, in general. Inspiring, even nearly 90 years later.
