Description

  • Mariner Books
  • Surprisingly, this long essay about society and art and sexism is one of Woolf's most accessible works. Woolf, a major
    modernist writer and critic, takes us on an erudite yet conversational--and completely entertaining--walk around the
    history of women in writing, smoothly comparing the architecture of sentences by the likes of William Shakespeare and
    Jane Austen, all the while lampooning the chauvinistic state of university education in the England of her day. When she
    concluded that to achieve their full greatness as writers women will need a solid income and a privacy, Woolf pretty
    much invented modern feminist criticism.
