Présentation de l'éditeur

Adeline Virginia Woolf was an English writer, regarded as one of the foremost modernist literary figures of the twentieth century. During the interwar period, Woolf was a significant figure in London literary society and a member of the Bloomsbury Group. Her most famous works include the novels Mrs Dalloway (1925), To the Lighthouse (1927) and Orlando (1928), and the book-length essay A Room of One's Own (1929), with its famous dictum, "A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction." -wikipedia --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

Great & important book, but false advertising 6 octobre 2012
Par Hilda Doolittle - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
First, about the false advertising: Amazon promises the Kindle edition is the Annotated Edition. In fact, it is not. I read this book at least every year, and have several paperback editions of it, including the annotated one. I wanted the annotated in kindle to teach from, but when it came, I was disappointed to see it's the one without original pictures & annotations. I tried to get Amazon's attention about this, but the online communications proved too cumbersome to work through.

This work's mportance is immense; it is a 1938 update of and response to Mary Wollstonecraft's A VINDICATION OF THE RIGHTS OF WOMAN (1792).. If you find the reading difficult at first, read it aloud to yourself until you get a sense of Woolf's style and voice. This is a sequel to A ROOM OF ONE'S OWN, much more potent than that canonized work.

Read it!

It All Boils Down To Money! 8 février 2005
Par V. Marshall - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Early feminism begins to emerge in this essay written by Virginia Woolf in 1938 as a follow up to her wonderful book "A Room of One's Own."

Woolf received requests for three guineas from a women's college, from a society for promoting professional women and finally from a group requesting the prevention of war. This essay is Woolf's answer to those requests. While it is extraordinarily cumbersome to read the bottom line suggests that a society which promotes only one aspect of itself and suffocates anything else will never be advanced enough to protect its own culture and intellect from revolutions and wars. And because the idea of fighting rests in the very aspect so highly promoted (male dominated society) all of the laws and practices contain this strife and will until other parts of society are allowed a fair voice. The interesting concept is how little society has advanced from this original idea and the strife continues to be a factor today. Woolf suggests war exists as a profession and an act that offers "happiness and excitement" for the very society it falls under. In fact she goes as far to suggest that men would deteriorate without the outlet of war to contend with. Woolf discusses patriotism as a purely male act because of the fact that women simply cannot be patriots in a culture that suffocates their voices and refuses to educate them (remember this is 1938). The disturbing thought is that women are now able to vote, work and fight in wars but our culture remains basically the same with white males in domination. How slow we are to advance!

Virginia Woolf believed that war could only be prevented through an educational system that stopped the glamorization of it and instead taught the inhumanity of the act. She found that poor educational systems actually taught better because they allowed art and creative processes to flow rather than the pomp and circumstance of wealth and the art of dominating, killing and capital acquirements. Sadly one of Woolf's most profound ideas applies today, "There we have an embryo the creature, Dictator as we call him when he is Italian or German, who believes that he has the right, whether given by God, Nature, sex or race is immaterial, to dictate to other human beings how they shall live; what they shall do." From a society of slavery, racism and suffering emerges a great savior promoting freedom? It seems an oxymoron does it not? Woolf continues, "And what right have we, Sir, to trumpet our ideas of freedom and justice to other countries when we can shake out from our most respectable newspapers any day of the week eggs like these?" The futurism of Woolf is astounding in this book as she finally suggests that women be labeled "outside" society so that her country is the entire world and her patriotism allowed to be the same. In a visionary profoundness Woolf manages to find an answer towards true freedom outside of the fascination of a few guineas.

Adeline Virginia Woolf (1882-1941) was an English author, essayist, publisher, and writer of short stories, regarded as one of the foremost modernist literary figures of the twentieth century. In this book, she answers three requests for donation of a guinea: from a women's college building fund; from a society for professional women; and from a group which aims to prevent war, as well as "protect culture; and intellectual liberty."

Here are some quotations from the book:

"Our class is the weakest of all the classes in the state. We have no weapon with which to enforce our will." (Pg. 13)
"...our new weapon, the influence which the educated man's daughter can exert now that she is able to earn her own living." (Pg. 17)
"...in the present state of things the most effective way in which we can help you through education to prevent war is to subscribe as generously as possible to the colleges for the daughters of educated men." (Pg. 37)
"The questions that we have to ask and to answer about that procession during this moment of transition are so important they they may well change the lives of all men and women for ever. For we have to ask ourselves, here and now, do we wish to join that procession? Above all, where is it leading us, the procession of educated men?" (Pg. 62)
"She will find that she has no good reason to ask her brother to fight on her behalf to protect 'our' country. 'Our country,' she will say, 'throughout the greater part of our history has treated me as a slave; it has denied me an education or any share in its possessions.'" (Pg. 108)
"...we can best help you to prevent war not by repeating your words and following your methods but by finding new words and creating new methods. We can best help you to prevent war not by joining your society but by remaining outside your society but in co-operation with your aim." (Pg. 143)

Not Perfect, But Interesting and Still Relevant 20 septembre 2004
Par Abigail Nussbaum - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
If you've come in search of more Virginia Woolf essays after being blown away by A Room of One's Own, be warned - Three Guineas isn't as good as that earlier, astonishing essay. Nevertheless, a second-tier Virginia Woolf essay is still a Virginia Woolf essay, which is to say, clever, funny and dangerously sharp.

In Three Guineas, Woolf discusses three letters, each requesting a donation of a guinea, one from a society seeking to prevent war, one from a society promoting the employment of professional women and one from the building fund of a women's college. All worthy goals, and anyone else might have been satisfied to send them each a guinea and be done with it. Woolf, on the other hand, uses these three requests to launch a discussion about women's role in society and the effect that educated, professional women can and should have on it.

As in A Room of One's Own, some of what Woolf says is obvious or outdated. What's staggering, however, is how many of her observations remain fresh and relevant. Even more staggering is how accurately she predicts the changes that have taken place since society began making a real place for women - changes in society, but also changes in women. Although I knew much of what Woolf was saying, I doubt that I had ever seen these thoughts so clearly and intelligently formulated. As an added bonus, Three Guineas provides a brief but fascinating glimpse into the history of the suffrage movement (and its opposition) in England.

It is easy to guess Three Guineas' flaws. It is too long, too detailed, and ultimately not as revelatory and exciting as A Room of One's Own. It is, however, important to anyone interested in thinking about women's place in society, and the affect that each has on the other. Along with A Room of One's Own, it should be required reading for young women who (like myself) take their rights and freedom for granted.

Execrable Digitization 7 novembre 2013

This pertains only to the Kindle edition of Three Guineas by Virginia Woolf (ASIN: B004TC0GRC) and not to the book itself or the related print edition.

It appears that the text of the Kindle edition was entered by optical character recognition and was not reviewed either by a human being or even by a spell-check program. After noticing, but not marking, a significant number of obvious typographical errors, I began marking them in a distinctive manner to distinguish them from other notes and marks. After finishing the book I went back and counted the typographical errors so marked and arrived at approximately 90. It is safe to say that estimating the unmarked errors comes up with a total of well over 100, or an average of at least one for every other page. These include word substitutions, word misspellings and punctuation errors. I only marked obvious and indubitable errors and did not mark spellings that might be attributable to British English or punctuation that is merely questionable, possibly by reason of Woolf’s idiosyncratic punctuation style.

This shoddy edition is an insult to the memory of one of the greatest writers of the 20th century and to readers as well. The constant barrage of errors makes it impossible to read the book for itself.

I don’t know whether the responsibility for quality control lies with the publisher or with Amazon, but I think it should be with both. The book publisher has the same responsibility for care about the quality of its product no matter what the medium in which its product will appear, print or digital. Amazon markets the product as a “Kindle edition”, and has a responsibility to protect the integrity of its trademark, as well as a commercial interest in doing so.

I recognize that this book falls into a category resulting from a low price and low-volume where additional expense of production is difficult, and I would not like to see that additional expense result in the failure to publish such works. However, I feel that Amazon should come up with a way to deal with this issue. One possibility would be to label publications that have not been subjected to quality control as “Beta” Kindle editions. In this way the potential reader would be warned that he might encounter such problems. Another possibility would be to offer a bounty to readers for identifying errors so that they could be corrected.
