About the eBook

This carefully crafted ebook: "A Room of One's Own + Three Guineas (2 extended essays)" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. This volume combines two books which were among the greatest contributions to feminist literature this century. Together they form a brilliant attack on sexual inequality and a passionate polemic which draws a startling comparison between the tyrannous hypocrisy of the Victorian patriarchal system and the evils of fascism. Virginia Woolf makes the connection between war and the economy and a woman's role (or lack there of) in both. 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 sequel, Three Guineas, is a passionate polemic which draws a startling comparison between the tyrannous hypocrisy of the Victorian patriarchal system and the evils of fascism.


About the Author

Virginia Woolf, born Adeline Virginia Stephen on January 25, 1882, in London, was an English writer and one of the foremost modernists of the 20th century. Known for her innovative narrative techniques and insightful explorations of the inner lives of her characters, Woolf was a central figure in the Bloomsbury Group, which was a gathering of English writers, intellectuals, philosophers, and artists. Her most famous works include the novels 'Mrs. Dalloway' (1925), 'To the Lighthouse' (1927), and 'Orlando' (1928), as well as the book-length essay 'A Room of One's Own' (1929). In 'A Room of One's Own' along with the sequel essay 'Three Guineas' (1938), Woolf addresses the socioeconomic constraints of women and underscores the importance of both financial independence and intellectual freedom for female writers. Woolf's literary style is characterized by her stream-of-consciousness approach, which sought to capture the complex thoughts and emotions of characters in a way that mimics the human thought process. Her essays, often infused with feminist themes, not only analyze the gender dynamics of her time but also lay down a foundational critique that would become pivotal to feminist literary criticism. Virginia Woolf's contribution to literature was cut short by her tragic death on March 28, 1941, but her work continues to influence generations of writers and thinkers.
