Product description

About the Author

Virginia Woolf was an English novelist and essayist 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."

5.0 out of 5 stars An extraordinary read. Please read this book.
Reviewed in India on 29 August 2019
A Room Of One's Own by Virginia Woolf is an extended version of essays based on lectures she gave on Women and Fiction. It's straight, cut through feminists and so accurate.

Woolf has talked about Women in Literature from the time of Shakespeare and how a women couldn't write a play like he did but what's interesting, laughable and disturbing is that 21st century is not much different from 18th or 19th century in terms of women education as a whole. They are still not "required" to become an artist or an astronaut or a scholar. They don't "need" this in their life but only depend on their father or husband because women are defined by men. I mean it has been almost 200 years and we are still stuck in somewhat same situation in many parts of the world where men are still walking with their ego and exploiting women because they want to feel superior.

She clearly points this out, which is true to its core that not being dependent on a man for the basis needs opens up a whole new world with the liberty of asking questions without any second thoughts and being subjected.

Also, the last two pages just blew my mind. Woolf asks women to do something for themselves, make money, get a room of their own and stop making any kind of excuses because it is now the time to rise and stand for themselves.

Truth be told, I could have just highlighted the whole book. It might take a little time to adjust to her writing style but definitely go for this.

5.0 out of 5 stars She's a classic for a reason.
Reviewed in India on 12 August 2021
Woolf's description of women in literature is so accurate. Poverty has got to do so much with why women didn't write and were considered unintelligent. I loved how she acknowledges that when she had money that she didn't feel the envy and the distaste she had for men that had access to institutions and a source of income. It is very honest and well written too. I loved it. Would recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Virginia Woolf regarding the relationship between women and fiction women & fiction.
Reviewed in India on 7 July 2021
Virginia Woolf provides 6 insightful chapters as she probes the relationship between women & fiction for a series of lectures delivered at Cambridge in 1928. A fascinating exploration of how women have historically been portrayed, & the legacy that modern women writers have inherited.
