A Room of One’s Own
Author: Virgina Woolf
Release Date: October 1929
Looks like I’m in the minority in not enjoying this essay. Ms. Woolf does make several good points about women writing and appearing in fiction, but I didn’t exactly enjoy reading them with her many classist views mixed in (rightly called out by Mary Gordon in her introduction) as well as a writing style that preferred 3 pages to a paragraph with too many separate thoughts strung together.
That last complaint is something I’m guilty of in my own writing, but I’m also not considered a pillar of literature.
