In A Room of One’s Own, Virginia Woolf takes us through a history of women in fiction, from the unknown poets of Elizabethan times to 18th and 19th-century writers like Jane Austen and Charlotte Brontë. This little book is not only for feminists, but for anyone interested in the life and classic writings of female authors.
Apologies for the intermittent background noise, near the beginning of the episode. It was probably me leaning on my “lectern” – i.e. a white cabinet on wheels, which may not be the most stable setup… I’ll be taking extra precautions in the future!
