A Room of One's Own
LnT The website Bustle writes: "In A Room of One's Own, Virginia Woolf imagines that Shakespeare had a sister-a sister equal to Shakespeare in talent, and 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. If only she had found the means to create, argues Woolf, she would have reached the same heights as her immortal sibling. In this classic essay, her message is a simple one: women must have a fixed income and a room of their own in order to have the freedom to create." A very good summary indeed. It is quite strange to find it on a list entitled "15 Classic Novels Under 200 Pages That Are The Ideal Length For A Beach Day".
