Collecting two the size of a book of essays, One House and Three Guineas by Virginia Woolf, the most powerful feminist writes, to justify the need for women to possess intellectual freedom and financial independence.This Penguin Modern Classics edition is edited with an introduction and notes by Michele Barrett.A Clean Room, based on a lecture given at Girton College, Cambridge, is one of the great feminist polemics, going into her themes of Jane Austen and Carlotte Bronte’s silent stems from Shakespeare’s play Shakespeare’s gifted (imaginary) sister and the effects of poverty and sexual coercion on female creativity.Three Guineas was published nearly a decade later, and innovates in its discussion of men, militarism and women’s attitudes to war.These two tracks reveal Virginia Woolf’s fiery and sophisticated spirit, and confirm her status as a very inspiring essayist.Virginia Woolf (1882-1941) is considered one of the leading 20th century author and essayist, a key figure in literary history as a feminist and modernist, and the center of “The Bloomsbury Group”.This informal collective of artists and writers, including Lytton Strachey and Roger Fry, has had a powerful influence on early 20th century British culture.Between 1925 and 1931 Virginia Woolf produced these are now considered her most beautiful masterpieces, from Mrs Dalloway (1925) to the poetic and highly experimental novel Les Vagues (1931)She also maintained an astonishing exit from literary criticism, short fiction film, journalism and biography, including the playful and subversive Orlando (1928) and A Clean Room (1929) a passionate feminist essay.If you liked A Clean Room, you could, like Woolf, Orlando, also available in Penguin Modern Classics.Probably the most influential play of non-fiction written by a woman in this century’ Hermione Lee, Financial Times
