I’ve never actually read A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf, published in 1929.
It didn’t keep me from continually referencing the title; it has such a nice ring. I have now read the Wikipedia page on it, so I feel “qualified” ; – | to tell you that this blog is the cyber room of my own and my new attic apartment is the tangible room of my own.
Virginia Woolf created Judith Shakespeare? She said that Chloe liked Olivia? Like, LIKED, Olivia? In 1929?
She said about women:
“She pervades poetry from cover to cover; she is all but absent from history. She dominates the lives of kings and conquerors in fiction; in fact she was the slave of any boy whose parents forced a ring upon her finger. Some of the most inspired words and profound thoughts in literature fall from her lips; in real life she could hardly read; scarcely spell; and was the property of her husband.”
You go Ginny! May I call you Ginny?
Thank you for your essay
Ms. Virginia Woolf. I’m going to go get a copy of A Room of One’s Own to read in my attic room. I hope I become as modern and educated as you were in 1929.
