A room of one's own (macmillan collector's library)

À propos

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.

Virginia Woolf

Virginia Woolf est née en 1882. Mariée à l'économiste Leonard Woolf, elle a fondé avec lui la maison d'édition Hogarth Press. Ses romans et ses articles ont fait d'elle l'une des figures les plus importantes de la littérature de l'entre-deux-guerres. Sujette à des crises nerveuses fréquentes et craignant de perdre la raison, elle mit fin à ses jours en 1941. Elle était membre du Bloomsbury Group, un groupe d'artistes auquel appartenaient E.M. Forster et J.M. Keynes.
