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.
