HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics.
`Lock up your libraries if you like; but there is no gate, no lock, no bolt that you can set upon the freedom of my mind...''
Based on a lecture given at Cambridge and first published in 1929, `A Room of One''s Own'' interweaves Woolf''s personal experience as a female writer with themes ranging from Austen and Bronte to Shakespeare''s gifted (and imaginary) sister. `Three Guineas'', Woolf''s most impassioned polemic, came almost a decade later and broke new ground by challenging the very notions of war and masculinity.
This volume combines two inspirational, witty and urbane essays from one of literature''s pre-eminent voices; collectively they constitute a brilliant and lucid attack on sexual inequality.
