Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf
Orlando Автор: Virginia W.
Spanning three centuries, the novel opens as Orlando, a young nobleman in Elizabeth' s England, awaits a visit from the Queen and traces his experience with first love as England under James I lies locked in the embrace of the Great Frost. At the midpoint of the novel, Orlando, now an ambassador in Costantinople, awakes to find that he is a woman, and the novel indulges in farce and irony to consider the roles of women in the 18th and 19th centuries. As the novel ends in 1928, a year consonant with full suffrage for women. Orlando, now a wife and mother, stands poised at the brink of a future that holds new hope and promise for women. Virginia Woolf' s Orlando ' The longest and most charming love letter in literature' , playfully constructs the figure of Orlando as the fictional embodiment of Woolf' s close friend and lover, Vita Sackville-West. 204 руб √ в наличии

A Room of One's Own and Three Guineas Автор: Woolf V.
In this first history of women' s writing, she describes the importance of education, financial independence, and equality of opportunity to creative freedom. Three Guineas was written under the threat of fascism and impending war. A radical articulation of Woolf' s pacifist politics, it investigates the causes of gender inequalities and the ways in which women' s historic outsider position make them crucial in the prevention of war. Both these works started life as talks to groups of young women, and their engaging wit and informality establish Woolf as one of the twentieth-century' s greatest essayists. ' Intellectual freedom depends on material things. Poetry depends on intellectual freedom. And women have always been poor. . . ' In these two classic essays of feminist literature, Woolf argues passionately for women' s intellectual freedom and their role in challenging the drive towards fascism and conflict. In A Room of One' s Own she explores centuries of limitations placed on women, as well as celebrating the creative achievements of the women writers who overcame these obstacles. 554 руб √ в наличии
