In A Room of One's Own, Virginia Woolf imagines that Shakespeare had a sister: a sister equal to Shakespeare in talent, equal in genius, but whose legacy is radically different.This imaginary woman never writes a word and dies by her own hand, her genius unexpressed. But if only she had found the means to create, urges Woolf, she would have reached the same heights as her immortal sibling. In this classic essay, Virginia Woolf takes on the establishment, using her gift of language to dissect the world around her and give a voice to those who have none. Her message is simple: A woman must have a fixed income and a room of her own in order to have the freedom to create. Annotated and with an introduction by Susan Gubar… (mais)

... e cada unha dispón de cincocentas ao ano e de cuartos de seu; se temos o hábito da liberdade e o valro de escribir exactamente o que pensamos; se ns afastamos un pouco do cuarto de estar común e vemos os seres humanos non sempre desde a perspectiva das súas relacións, senón da súa relación coa realidade; se vemos taén o ceo, as árbores ou o que sexa por si mesmos; se miramos máis alá da pantasma de Milton, porque ningún ser humano nos debería tapar os ollos; se afrontamos o feito (porque é un feito) de que non temos brazo ao que nos agarrar, senón que camiñamos soas, e que nos relaccionamos co mundo da realidade e non só co mundo dos homes e as mulleres, daquela chegará a oportunidade e a poeta morta que era a irmá de Shakespeare vestirá o corpo que tans veces deixara a un lado. procurando unha vida para ela nas vidas desas descoñecidas qeu forn as súas precursoras, como fixo antes o seu irmán, nacerá. non podemos esperar qeu veña sen a nosa preparación, sen o noso esforzo. sen a nosa determinación para que cando naza de novo poida vivir e escribir a súa poesía, porque iso sería imposíbel. pero eu sosteño que virá se traballamos por ela, e que, mesmo na probeza e na escuridade, este traballo paga a pena ( )

Un texte fort et audacieux pour son époque, qui nous incite toutes, nous les femmes, à trouver en nous-même cette force de création et de faire en sorte d'instaurer pour nous-mêmes les conditions matérielles et psychologiques nécessaires à la mise en oeuvre de nos pratiques de créations quelles qu'elles soient.
Ce livre est basé sur diverses conférences données par l'autrice. ( )

I first read this in college in the 80's, and it was transformational. Rereading many years later I remain impressed, but I will say it felt a good deal more current when I read it last. Everything here was groundbreaking when first published, even for women who had read Mary Wollstonecraft and other early feminists. Additionally, Woolf's keen eye, brilliant prose, and power of persuasion were and remain humbling. It is sad that her words still seemed very fresh in the 1080's and gratifying they are a bit less so now. In the past 30+ years society has changed more than we (or at least I) realize. Books like this one really bring that home. Still, even with women in a very different place than they were with respect to access to education and economically sustaining work much of it still resonates. Economic disparities between men and women are still profound, and they still limit women's opportunities to pursue things that are intellectually and spiritually satisfying.

As the economic divide has narrowed, the inequality looks a bit different. Now the issue is less that one can write better with a roof and a full belly and more that life for most people living in two adult households (particularly with children) now requires two incomes and that those in one adult homes with children often just survive on one income. That means everyone needs to have cash-paying employment. Social norms still dictate that women with male partners also work the full time job of keeping house and raising children in addition to work outside the home, and of course single parents still do all of that. Women are exhausted. The NYT just did an excellent series about this focusing on how the pandemic made this unsustainable existence even worse. I read just yesterday that suicides in Japan among women in their childbearing years have skyrocketed in the pandemic year. No woman I know under the age of 50 has the time to meditate upon any urns. That is true even though my friends are largely people with professional and/or graduate degrees and have access to enough capital to meet their needs and have some help in the house on occasion. This means life is easier than it is for most women, and still we are maxed out. So Woolf's full belly part of the equation is showing improvement (though certainly many people are going hungry, at least here in the states, and the majority of the hungry are women and children.) But the full belly is only what was needed to get a room of one's own -- the purpose of that room was uninterrupted time to create, and most women have not come any closer to that meeting that need than they were 100 years ago.

Of course economic autonomy is not the only subject addressed here. The fact that history is viewed through a white European male lens, a view of the past that inhibits women's present and future is also front and center. The truth of that observation is sadly little impacted by time and social change, though there has been some movement, particularly in the past 10 years or so. That fact also helps to explain why progress has been so maddeningly slow, and to illuminate the strength and talent of those women who were able to make any impact before recent change.

All in all, Woolf's speech/manifesto stands the test of time. My hope is that for my grandchildren it will be a merely historical document. For now it a reminder of how we have moved forward and more importantly a kick in the ass to remind us that the core problem remains very much a part of most women's present. We all (feminists wherever we may fall on the gender spectrum) need to get out of the proverbial frog-being-boiled state of acceptance and into the real work of making sure that progress continues. Nearly 100 years and we still have a lot to do and Woolf's words inspire a lot of doing. ( )

An unequivocal feminist text and so much more, Virginia Woolf's A Room of One's Own sufficiently coalesces with her own fictional writing prowess. Using a character in the name of Mary "Any-Surname", Woolf tells of women's history, factual and sharp, and dissects this further through fictional Mary's personal history. This is further develop by Woolf's, through Mary, musings and sentiments regarding women's role in society, much more of what she needs in pursuing a career, a writing career in this instance, that she is passionate about. But achieving this is not without hurdles and struggles because women do not have the same rights and privileges as men. It is more than just about having a room of one's own with 500 pounds a year.

Woolf is not preachy but passionately informative and does not stop here. She further reaches out and proposes not solutions but an "androgynous mind" which according to her is the best mind and for me should be the default ("In each of us two powers preside, one male, one female…The androgynous mind is resonant and porous… naturally creative, incandescent and undivided.") Luckily, human minds are powerful enough to develop and open up to such a mature way of thinking. I would like to believe. Moreover, how she examines classic female writers, their writing, and in this case a modern fictitious author, under the the patriarchal system is significantly thought-provoking. I only wonder why Mary Wollstonecraft and her daughter, Mary Shelley (credited as the inventor of the sci-fi genre), are not included in this. Perhaps Woolf does not hold the sci-fi genre in high regard? Nonetheless, her hypothesis about an existence of a female Shakespeare (through Shakespeare's "sister" Judith who in reality is Shakespeare's daughter) would not be far from the truth if she were indeed alive. Remember when women, so-called "witches", were burned at the stake?

For such a short book, A Room of One's Own never leaves any inequality unscrutinised. As old as some of these problems are, what with the progress of women's rights, there is still so much to do particularly about women of colour and inclusion of trans women. As a matter of fact what Woolf has iterated time and time in again that "The history of men's opposition to women's emancipation is more interesting perhaps than the story of that emancipation itself" is still relevant and observed today. A piercing book. ( )

I had somehow managed not ever to read anything by Woolf. Saw this when browsing somewhat randomly at my local library branch and decided to give it a whirl. I'm not sure what I expected -- maybe something stodgy and serious and kind of leaden if worthwhile -- but I found it almost breezy and just really well put together and of course important. It was mostly a real pleasure to read. ( )
