by Virginia Woolf

Born Adeline Virginia Stephen in 1882, Virginia Woolf is one of the most haunting literary figures of the twentieth century. She was a member of the famed, and sometimes resented, set of artists and intellectuals known as the Bloomsbury Group, whose members strove to free themselves from the moral and intellectual strictures of Victorianism. A respected literary and cultural critic, a prominent essayist and sought-after lecturer, and an avant-garde novelist, Woolf was at the center of England's literary culture until her suicide in 1941. A Room of One's Own speaks to those women-and men-on the verge of a new world of gender relations, addressing the uncertainty of how to behave, think, and write at the foreseeable end of the history of female oppression.
