A Room of One's Own is the one of the most prolific and pertinent feminist essays of the 20th century. First published on 24 October 1929, the essay was based on a series of lectures Woolf delivered at Newnham College and Girton College, two women's colleges at Cambridge University in October 1928. Virginia Woolf examines the limitations of womanhood in the early twentieth century. Written with startling prose and poetic licence of a novelist, Woolf presents an argument for both a literal and figurative space for women writers within a literary tradition dominated by men.


A pioneer of stream of consciousness narrative, Virginia Woolf (1882-1941) is considered one of the most important modernist writers of the twentieth century. After primary tutoring at home, she attended the Ladies' Department of Kings College London, where she was introduced to a handful of feminists and became involved in the women's movement. Later, she joined the Bloomsbury Group, where she met her husband, Leonard Woolf. Together, they founded Hogarth Press, under which they published most of her work. Also a brilliant essayist, intellectual, and critic, she remains one of the most influential authors of all time.
