A Room of Ones own is a fantastic exploration exploring the history of Women authors in literature and how social and political differences between the genders has impacted their ability to write and explore works of fiction. Written in the form of an extended essay, Woolf writes about her own experiences and encompasses them in some 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. I loved every word written by Virginia Woolf in A Room of One’s Own. It’s probably one of the very few books where I felt like it expressed my exact thoughts and feelings towards feminism.

A Room of One& Own (1929) has become a classic feminist essay and perhaps Virginia Woolf& best known work; The Voyage Out (1915) is highly significant as her first novel. Both focus on the place of women within the power structures of modern society. The essay lays bare the woman artist& struggle for a voice, since throughout history she has been denied the social and economic independence assumed by men. Woolf& prescription is clear: if a woman is to find creative expression equal to a man& she must have an independent income, and a room of her own.

An hour passed, and the downstairs rooms at the hotel grew dim andwere almost deserted, while the little box-like squares above them werebrilliantly irradiated. Itwas only matchboard, she decided, run up to make many little rooms ofone large one.

A Room of One's Own (1929) has become a classic feminist essay and perhaps Virginia Woolf's best known work; The Voyage Out (1915) is highly significant as her first novel. Both focus on the place of women within the power structures of modern society.

The essay lays bare the woman artist's struggle for a voice, since throughout history she has been denied the social and economic independence assumed by men. Woolf's prescription is clear: if a woman is to find creative expression equal to a man's, she must have an independent income, and a room of her own. This is both an acute analysis and a spirited rallying cry; it remains surprisingly resonant and relevant in the 21st century.

The novel explores these issues more personally, through the character of Rachel Vinrace, a young woman whose 'voyage out' to South America opens up powerful encounters with her fellow-travellers, men and women. As she begins to understand her place in the world, she finds the happiness of love, but also sees its brute power. Woolf has a sharp eye for the comedy of English manners in a foreign milieu; but the final undertow of the novel is tragic as, in some of her finest writing, she calls up the essential isolation of the human spirit.
