Originally published in 1929, "A Room of One's Own" is an essay by Virginia Woolf based on two lectures that she delivered at Newnham College and Girton College in 1928. Within it, Woolf uses metaphors to examine social injustice related to women and their lack of free expression. Highly recommended for those with an interest in feminism and feminist literature. Adeline Virginia Woolf (1882-1941) was an English writer. She is widely hailed as being among the most influential modernist authors of the 20th century and a pioneer of stream of consciousness narration. Woolf was a central figure in the feminist criticism movement of the 1970s, her works having inspired countless women to take up the cause. She suffered numerous nervous breakdowns during her life primarily as a result of the deaths of family members, and it is now believed that she may have suffered from bipolar disorder. In 1941, Woolf drowned herself in the River Ouse at Lewes, aged 59. Other notable works by this author include: "Pattledom" (1925), "Flush - A Biography" (1933), and "The Waves" (1931). Read & Co.
