Présentation de l'éditeur

This ebook includes a biographical introduction, a short, critical analysis of Woolf's career and a brief introduction to this work.

Originally published in October 1929, A Room of One's Own was based on a series of lectures Woolf gave at Girton and Newnham Colleges in Cambridge during the previous year. The overriding theme concerns the conditions necessary to allow a woman to write for a living in a society (her own) that is a patriarchy. The requirements, Woolf suggests, are that she have a room of her own in which to work – hence the title – and a yearly income, ideally a trust from which to draw.

Of course, these are merely the pegs onto which Woolf hangs a treatise that is an essential feminist text. At times the writing is disjointed and in some places extravagant, but throughout we see one of the great novelists turn her ire upon a society that excludes women physically and mentally from what they every right to enjoy in life. Whether those exclusions are educational – Woolf begins with an anecdote about being barred from a college library – social or sexual, the writing is, in contemporary terms, unflinching.

The work has been criticised of course and principally for that second condition, that a woman needs not just a room, but an income. It can't have escaped her notice that in declaring the need for some kind of trust, Woolf was excluding an entire class from the ability to write. Indeed, she was also excluding anyone who had failed to receive a modicum of education, but then it was a modernist trait that such work be limited to those who had the wherewithal to understand it.

I read this book in Paris when I was living as a journalist and this book had a big impact on me. It set out how someone could become a writer, though I have yet to be published is besides the point as I have not given up hope! As always, great to see Woolf's oeuvre popping up on Kindle- I can own a room of one's own in my own room!

Very interesting to read something by a person who I had only really heard of in such terms as "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf"
One can, on hindsight, see how the male dominated leaders would have felt to have been held to account by this active feminist.
It certainly made me aware of the almost insurmountable problems that had to be overcome by females to lead what we would now consider a normal life.
Many may feel that this process is still with us, and they may well be right and only time will tell.

I glanced it really fast about this famous book advocating women's rights to have our own room and $50k pounds per year income. I always avoid reading this kind of journalistic essays that jump here and there. I stick to my roots of academic writings to dig 3 layers deep. But it's good to get a flavor of one of the 20th century's big writer's style. I use this book as a grammar book to practice my English.

Beautifully written, eloquent, smart, funny and enlightening.It explained so much about why women have not been able to create, and why, even today, there are people who still think women are intrinsically incapable of doing serious art.
