In this extraordinary essay, Virginia Woolf examines the limitations of womanhood in the early twentieth century. With the startling prose and poetic licence of a novelist, she makes a bid for freedom, emphasizing that the lack of an independent income, and the titular `room of one`s own`, prevents most women from reaching their full literary potential. As relevant in its insight and indignation today as it was when first delivered in those hallowed lecture theatres, A Room of One`s Own remains both a beautiful work of literature and an incisive analysis of women and their place in the world. This Macmillan Collector`s Library edition of A Room of One`s Own by Virginia Woolf features an afterword by the British art historian Frances Spalding. Designed to appeal to the booklover, the Macmillan Collector`s Library is a series of beautiful gift editions of much loved classic titles. Macmillan Collector`s Library are books to love and treasure.
