PREFACE BY CLARA JONES
A Room of One’s Own
VIRGINIA WOOLF
One of the great documents of C20th feminist history, A Room of One’s Own is a key text.Yet it makes very easy reading. It is structured as a discussion (because it was originally lectures at Cambridge) and begins casually – ‘But, you may say, we asked you to speak about women and fiction’ – in order to draw in the listener/reader. A Room is an essential companion to any collection of C20th novels, and it is a political book showing that Virginia Woolf ’s ‘trinity of space, privacy and financial security [is] as worth striving for as
ever’ (Clara Jones).
