A Room of One's Own is an extended essay by Virginia Woolf. First published in 1929, the essay was based on a series of lectures she delivered at Newnham College and Girton College, two women's colleges at Cambridge University in October 1928. While this extended essay in fact employs a fictional narrator and narrative to explore women both as writers of and characters in fiction, the manuscript for the delivery of the series of lectures, titled ""Women and Fiction"", and hence the essay, are considered non-fiction. The essay is generally seen as a feminist text, and is noted in its argument for both a literal and figural space for women writers within a literary tradition dominated by patriarchy.

With an Introduction by Francis Spalding.

“For fans of reading!”

This is not a book I feel quite up to the job of reviewing in depth. I found it really interesting and as always I really enjoyed Virginia Woolf's writing, her wit and beauty are so perfect.
