Publisher Comments:

In A Room of One's Own, Virginia Woolf imagines that Shakespeare had a sister: a sister equal to Shakespeare in talent, equal in genius, but whose legacy is radically different.This imaginary woman never writes a word and dies by her own hand, her genius unexpressed. But if only she had found the means to create, urges Woolf, she would have reached the same heights as her immortal sibling. In this classic essay, Virginia Woolf takes on the establishment, using her gift of language to dissect the world around her and give a voice to those who have none. Her message is simple: A woman must have a fixed income and a room of her own in order to have the freedom to create.

Annotated and with an introduction by Susan Gubar

Synopsis:

"A Room of One's Own" is a feminist essay which grew out of a lecture that Virginia Woolf had been invited to give at Girton College, Cambridge in 1928. Ten years later "Three Guineas" appeared, an open letter in answer to the question: how can war be prevented?
