The highly controversial Three Guineas was Virginia Woolf's most explicit statement of her feminism. Forming part of the prestigious Shakespeare Head Press series of Woolf's works, this authoritative new edition includes her carefully considered selection of photographs, her discursive endnotes and extensive new annotations of her references and allusions. In an illuminating introduction, editor Naomi Black guides the reader through this allusive, highly artful book, discussing its structure and argument and tracing the history of its composition and critical reception. She analyses the text as a representation of Woolf's feminism, including the way in which the book's form subverts male conventions of scholarship. All variants and emendations are listed, but the text itself is free of interventions.
