A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction.

A Room of One's Own is an extended essay by Virginia Woolf, first published in September 1929. It is based on two lectures Woolf delivered in October 1928 at Newnham College and Girton College, women's constituent colleges at the University of Cambridge.

In this extraordinary essay, Virginia Woolf examines the limitations of womanhood in the early twentieth century. With the startling prose and poetic licence of a novelist, she makes a bid for freedom, emphasising that the lack of an independent income, and the titular ‘room of one’s own’, prevents most women from reaching their full literary potential.

As relevant in its insight and indignation today as it was when first delivered in those hallowed lecture theatres, A Room of One’s Own remains both a beautiful work of literature and an incisive analysis of women and their place in the world.

This Macmillan Collector’s Library edition of A Room of One's Own by Virginia Woolf features an afterword by the British art historian Frances Spalding.

Designed to appeal to the booklover, the Macmillan Collector’s Library is a series of beautiful gift editions of much loved classic titles. Macmillan Collector’s Library are books to love and treasure.
