Description

WITH AN INTRODUCTION, PLUS EXTENSIVE NOTES AND REFERENCES BY HERMIONE LEE. This volume combines for the first time in paperback two books by Virginia Woolf which are among the greatest contributions to feminist literature this century. Together they form a brilliant attack on Patriarchy and sexual inequality. A ROOM OF ONE'S OWN, first published in 1929, is a witty, urbane and persuasive argument against the intellectual subjection of women, particularly women writers. The sequal was published in 1938 as THREE GUINEAS - a passionate and much more strongly charged polemic which draws a startling comparison between the tyrannous hypocrisy of the Victorian patriarchal system and the evils of fascism.

Reviews

"One realises afresh the full meaning of originality, the magic of the mind which plays around concrete facts as though they were all spirit. And when it is finished it is with a renewed sense of zest and stimulus that one takes up life again and looks anew at objects which before were only ordinary." Guardian "Brilliant interweaving of personal experience, imaginative musing and political clarity" -- Kate Mosse "Achingly relevant" -- Natasha Walter Guardian
