WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY JEANETTE WINTERSON.
'What conditions are necessary for the creation of works of art?' Security, confidence, independence, a degree of prosperity - a room of one's own.
All things denied to most women around the world living in Virginia Woolf's time, and before her time, and since.
In this funny, provoking and insightful polemic, Virginia Woolf challenges her audience of young women to work on even in obscurity, to cultivate the habit of freedom, and to exercise the courage to write exactly what we think.
