Product Description


'Together these ten volumes make an attractive and reasonably priced (the volumes vary between L3.99 and L4.99) working edition of Virginia Woolf's best-known writing. One can only hope that their success will prompt World's Classics to add her other essays to the series in due course.' Elisabeth Jay, Westminster College, Oxford, Review of English Studies, Vol. XLV, No. 178, May '94

5.0 out of 5 stars I always forget how great Virginia Woolf's writing is Oct. 18 2016
By Shirley Musich - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I always forget how great Virginia Woolf's writing is. This is an essay noting the absence of women's writing voices throughout history and she makes note that women need a room of their own (which throughout history they have not had being forced to write in common rooms when they wrote) and independent means (which until very recent history women's income was claimed by their husband). Her point being that women need independence if they are to have an independent writing voice.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a must-read book for every writer or artist. Aug. 19 2016
By D. Bennett - Published on

Virginia Woolf is my favorite author. Her prose is divine and what comes out of her mind is startling, even in the 21st century. This particular book is a touchstone for women writers. Actually, crossing feminist lines (as we all should), it's a touchstone for writers of either gender.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't be afraid of reading Virginia Woolf! Dec 7 2005
By Rosemary Thornton - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I had no idea who this woman was, other than a generic realization that she was a writer of the early 1900s. Many months ago, my life fell apart and I ended up living in a friend's home while I sorted out the pieces of my messy life.

One day, my dear friend handed me this book and said, "You'll like this."

I was intimidated. After all, it's Virginia Woolf and only really smart people can read Woolf's writings. But I decided to read what I could and glaze over the rest. I ended up tucking myself into bed with this book every night and reading it again and again and again.

Yes, Woolf was a Victorian-era writer and the prose is thick and heavy-laden with Victorian verbosity, but her powerful writing style shines through the complicated sentences and nuanced lexicon.

My very favorite part was the top of page 60. After reading that, I felt that Ms. Woolf had reached through the decades and touched my very soul. If you're a writer and a sensitive soul (as I am), you'll understand when you read it. :)

Next semester, I'm teaching a course on writing and plan to quote Ms. Woolf extensively. This book will be well used and recommended to my students. And I highly recommend it to you, too.
