Description

Vintage Feminism- classic feminist texts in short form WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY JEANETTE WINTERSON 'What conditions are necessary for the creation of works of art?' Security, confidence, independence, a degree of prosperity - a room of one's own. All things denied to most women around the world living in Virginia Woolf's time, and before her time, and since. In this funny, provoking and insightful polemic, Virginia Woolf challenges her audience of young women to work on even in obscurity, to cultivate the habit of freedom, and to exercise the courage to write exactly what we think. ALSO IN THE VINTAGE FEMINIST SHORT SERIES- The Second Sex by Simone de Beauvoir A Vindication of the Rights of Woman by Mary Wollstonecraft The Beauty Myth by Naomi Wolf My Own Story by Emmeline Pankhurst

Author Biography

Virginia Woolf was born in London in 1882. After her father's death in 1904 Virginia and her sister, the painter Vanessa Bell, moved to Bloomsbury and became the centre of 'The Bloomsbury Group'. This informal collective of artists and writers exerted a powerful influence over early twentieth-century British culture. In 1912 Virginia married Leonard Woolf, a writer and social reformer. Three years later, her first novel The Voyage Out was published, followed by Night and Day (1919) and Jacob's Room (1922). Between 1925 and 1931 Virginia Woolf produced what are now regarded as her finest masterpieces, from Mrs Dalloway (1925) to The Waves (1931). She also maintained an astonishing output of literary criticism, short fiction, journalism and biography. On 28 March 1941, a few months before the publication of her final novel, Between the Acts, Virginia Woolf committed suicide.
