The essay pays tribute to women writers of the past, to women's achievements in the form of the novel, and projects a future in which women would be enabled to become not only novelists but poets. "Three Guineas" is a companion piece which engages the same themes. This edition includes the photographs which were originally published as part of "Three Guineas", showing men wearing various uniforms and looking at once sinister and absurd. These photographs were conceived as an integral part of the book.Hide synopsis

(Woolf's father, in line with the thinking of the era, believed that only the boys of the family should be sent to school. Because her father did not believe in investing in the education of his daughters, Woolf was left without the experience of formal schooling. In delivering the lectures outline in the essay, Woolf is speaking to women who have the opportunity to learn in a formal, communal setting. Woolf lets her audience know the importance of their education at the same time warning them of the precariousness of their position in society)

Virginia Woolf is worthy of her praise, and her skillfulness with words is most apparent in this work. Many of her prescient statements still resonate today. She artfully weaves illustrative tales within her imploring passages, and both are thought-provoking. Woolf is witty, sharp, and indipensable to the canon of women's rights. I also recommend Orlando.
