In A Room of One's Own, Virginia Woolf imagines that Shakespeare had a sister: a sister equal to Shakespeare in talent, equal in genius, but whose legacy is radically different.This imaginary woman never writes a word and dies by her own hand, her genius unexpressed. But if only she had found the means to create, urges Woolf, she would have reached the same heights as her immortal sibling. In this classic essay,Virginia Woolf takes on the establishment, using her gift of language to dissect the world around her and give a voice to those who have none. Her message is simple: A woman must have a fixed income and a room of her own in order to have the freedom to create. Annotated and with an introduction by Susan Gubar

'Intellectual freedom depends on material things. Poetry depends on intellectual freedom. And women have always been poor...'In these two classic essays of feminist literature, Woolf argues passionately for women's intellectual freedom and their role in challenging the drive towards fascism and conflict. In A Room of One's Own she explores centuries of limitations placed on women, as well as celebrating the creativeachievements of the women writers who overcame these obstacles.In this first history of women's writing, she describes the importance of education, financial independence, and equality of opportunity to creative freedom. ThreeGuineas was written under the threat of fascism and impending war. A radical articulation of Woolf's pacifist politics, it investigates the causes of gender inequalities and the ways in which women's historic outsider position make them crucial in the prevention of war. Both these works started life as talks to groups of young women, and their engaging wit and informality establish Woolf as one of the twentieth-century's greatest essayists. Their argumentscontinue to reverberate in feminist discourse to this day.

A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction, wrote Virginia Woolf. Published in 1920, A Room of One's Own has often been heralded as the first modern work of feminist criticism. It remains one of the most widely read, quoted, and analyzed texts of its kind. Ellen Rosenman describes the book's genesis as the sense of exclusion Woolf and many women experienced when confronted with the sexism and elitism of the British university system of their day. Rosenman offers a balanced appraisal, refusing to ignore the difficulties with Woolf's argument and in particular, her inconsistencies and contradictions.

Virginia Woolf erzählt vom Spaniel des Dichterpaares Elizabeth Barrett und Robert Browning, und nie ist die uralte Beziehung zwischen Mensch und Hund, die Gemeinsamkeit und Getrenntheit der Kreatur, sensibler geschildert worden als in dieser graziös unterhaltsamen, das Gegenständliche, das Sinnhafte, das Bewusste und das Unbewusste zart und fest greifenden Prosa.

Virginia Woolfs subtile Gesellschaftskomödie aus viktorianischer Zeit Katharine Hilbery, wohlerzogene Tochter aus der Londoner Oberschicht, ist standesgemäß und langweilig verlobt. Doch sie erliegt der Faszination des jungen Rechtsanwalts und sozialen Aufsteigers Ralph, der sie liebt, aber seinerseits von der Frauenrechtlerin Mary verehrt wird. Katharine entscheidet sich gegen die Konventionen ihrer Herkunft und für ihre Liebe zu Ralph. Ihre Cousine Cassandra schwärmt hingegen für Katharines Verlobten und verzehrt sich deshalb in Gewissensnöten. Spionierende Tanten, verpasste Rendezvous, Eifersucht und gekränkte Eitelkeiten können nicht verhindern, dass die Verliebten zueinander finden.
