A Room of One's Own

WOOLF, Virginia

WOOLF, Virginia A Room of One's Own

Hogarth Press, 1929.

First trade edition. Original cinnamon cloth with gilt titles on the spine, in pictorial Vanessa Bell dustwrapper. A fine copy, with a small ownership name on the front endpaper, in a near fine dustwrapper, which has just one tiny nick from a corner at the base of the spine, but is otherwise beautifully crisp and clean.

An extended essay, based on Woolf's lectures at a women's college at Cambridge University in 1928. In it, Woolf addresses her thoughts on "the question of women and fiction," interpreted by Woolf as many questions. In A Room of One's Own, Woolf ponders the significant question of whether or not a woman could produce art of the high quality of Shakespeare. In doing so, she examines women's historical experience as well as the distinctive struggle of the woman artist.
"a woman must have money and a room of her own if she is going to write."
