A Room Of One's Own,
This review is from: A Room of One's Own, and Three Guineas (Oxford World's Classics) (Paperback)
A must-read for any students of literature, or anyone with any appreciation of it! Although not exactly easy-going, if you've sat down to tackle Woolf then the rather intense stream of consciousness in which it is written will be expected and looked upon, perhaps, rather indulgently!
I found myself marvelling at gem after gem of innovative metaphors, it swarmed with ingenious semantic fields and though rather frustratingly, it raises far more questions than it answers, it presents a thought process that would be of great interest to any writer. The topic itself, Women and Fiction, is typically controversial, however the tension this naturally creates keeps it animated and especially evocative for readers looking at the contextual aspects in regard to Women as a specialist section of history.
