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. 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. Adeline Virginia Woolf (25 January 1882 – 28 March 1941) was an English writer, and one of the foremost modernists of the twentieth century. During the interwar period, Woolf was a significant figure in London literary society and a central figure in the influential Bloomsbury Group of intellectuals.

2015 Reprint of 1960 Edition. Full Facsimile of the original edition. "Women and Fiction" was first published in the U.S. in Forum Magazine, a prominent literary journal of the 1920's It is the principle essay and title of a series of lectures Woolff delivered at Newnham College and Girton College, two women's colleges at Cambridge University in October 1928. This essay and the Lectures would eventually be published as "A Room of One's Own" in 1929. In this essay Woolf traces the reasons for the very limited achievements among women novelists through the centuries. Why did they fail? They failed because they were not financially independent; they failed because they were not intellectually free; they failed because they were denied the fullest worldly experience. Mrs. Woolf imagines what would have happened to a hypothetical sister of Shakespeare (who possessed all his genius) because she lived in the eighteenth century; she insists that, whatever her gifts, no woman in that age of wife-beating could have written the plays. She shows what did happen in the nineteenth century to the Brontes and George Eliot because they lacked full participation in life; even George Eliot, the "emancipated" woman, lived with a man prosaically in St. John's Wood, while Tolstoy roamed the world and lived with gypsies; and "War and Peace" was as impossible for a woman to write then as "Lear" three centuries before. This short essays remains an important feminist text.

A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction, wrote Virginia Woolf. Published in 1920, A Room of One's Own has often been heralded as the first modern work of feminist criticism. It remains one of the most widely read, quoted, and analyzed texts of its kind. Ellen Rosenman describes the book's genesis as the sense of exclusion Woolf and many women experienced when confronted with the sexism and elitism of the British university system of their day. Rosenman offers a balanced appraisal, refusing to ignore the difficulties with Woolf's argument and in particular, her inconsistencies and contradictions.
