About This Book
Essay by Virginia Woolf, published in 1929. The work was based on two lectures
given by the author in 1928 at Newnham College and Girton College, Cambridge.
Woolf addressed the status of women, and women artists in particular, in this
famous essay which asserts that a woman must have money and a room of her own if
she is to write. Woolf celebrates the work of women writers, including Jane
Austen, George Eliot, and the Brontes. In the final section Woolf suggests that
great minds are androgynous. She argues that intellectual freedom requires
financial freedom, and she entreats her audience to write not only fiction but
poetry, criticism, and scholarly works as well. The essay, written in lively,
graceful prose, displays the same impressive descriptive powers evident in
Woolf's novels and reflects her compelling conversational style.
