A collection of essays dealing with a variety of subjects including modern writing, feminism and education. In "Women and Fiction" Virginia Woolf considers the reasons why so many educated women began writing novels in the 18th century. In another she discusses the lack of education that women received and the narrowness of conventional education. Also included are some of the book reviews that Virginia Woolf wrote for "The Times Literary Supplement".
About the Author
Virginia Woolf, born in 1882, was a major modernist novelist and the centre of the inter-war Bloomsbury Group. Between 1925 and 1931 she produced her finest masterpieces, from Mrs Dalloway to the poetic and highly experimental novel The Waves. She also maintained an astonishing output of literary criticism, journalism and biography, including A Room of One's Own (1929), a passionate feminist essay. Suffering from depression, she drowned herself in the River Ouse in 1941.
