about

Based on two lectures given at Cambridge colleges and first published by the Hogarth Press in 1929, A Room of One''s Own is an extended essay about the predicament of female writers and a stirring call for autonomy and recognition. As well as settling scores with reactionary critics and laying the foundations of a history of women''s literature, the text is also a triumph of imagination, with a celebrated passage envisaging the fate of a fictional sister of Shakespeare''s.

A seminal, widely studied feminist polemic that touches on both literature and politics, A Room of One''s Own is essential reading for those wishing to understand the progress that has been made in women''s rights and the struggles that still lie ahead. This edition also includes the 1938 essay Three Guineas, which reprises similar ideas in the context of the looming threat of war.

The most famous member of the Bloomsbury Group, Virginia Woolf (1882-1941) was a novelist, essayist and critic. Her writing established her as one of Modernism''s leading exponents, as well as a pioneering feminist. Her most famous works include To the Lighthouse, Orlando and Mrs Dalloway.
