In these texts, Virginia Woolf considers the implications of the historical exclusion of women from education and from economic independence. In "A Room of One's Own" (1929), she examines the work of past women writers, and looks ahead to a time when women's creativity will not be hampered by poverty, or by oppression. In "Three Guineas" (1938), however, Woolf argues that women's historical exclusion offers them the chance to form a political and cultural identity which could challenge the drive towards fascism and war.

From the Inside Flap:

With an introduction by Hermoine Lee

This volume combines two books which are among this century's greatest contributions to feminist literature. Together they form a brilliant attack on patriarchy and sexual inequality. 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 idea for a sequel came to Woolf early in 1931, after she had addressed the London National Society for Women's Service, and was eventually published in 1938 as Three Guineas - a passionate and much more strongly charged polemic which draws a startling comparison between the tyrannous hypocrisy of the Victorian patriarchal system and the evils of fascism.

About the Author:
