Publisher's Summary

"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.

Most beautiful and enjoyable book.

First VG I have heard. As a man I expected something but got something totally different. Her style is elegant, beautiful, funny, ironic, restrained, sharp. It buzzes delightfully like a bee on a summers day. It's a revelation. This is so easy and informative and paved with finery everywhere. Sublime and like an anvil dropping in your toes.

Your best most intelligent and interesting friend just wrote a book and it's a delight.
