A Room of One's Own is a feminist essay, published in 1929, which argued that women would never be able to write well and freely until they had the privacy and independence implied by a room of one's own. 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.
