AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Article contends women writers must have both literal and metaphorical independence to be able to write. The argument is based on Virginia Woolf's A Room of One's Own.


  • Contains photo with caption: 'A really truly "room of one's own"! "Salva," who sends the snap, writes: This old, old shed has been converted into a study, fitted with writing-table, reading lamp, bookshelves, etc. It has been handed on from one member of the family to another as each in turn has gone away - and with what joy does each successive owner enter into possession of "The Author's Den," as it is called.'
