Description

In "A Room of One's Own" and "Three Guineas", Virginia Woolf considers with energy and wit 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. These two works are a part of ten World's Classics by Virginia Woolf, and include an introduction and notes to provide guidance for readers new to this author.show more
