Liberty

£3.50

Freedom and enfranchisement. Something anarchical which pushes at boundaries. The sweetness of leisure time. Each of these rich avenues of meaning are bound up in the word ‘liberty’ and are explored here in varied pieces by one of the most ground-breaking writers of the last century. Whether via the passionate feminist polemic of ‘A Room of One’s Own’, the experimental narrative of her fiction, or a whimsical account of roaming the streets of London, Virginia Woolf’s writing will set your thoughts at liberty.

Description

Why should one half be free to live, while the other is doomed to watch silently from the sidelines? In this visionary collection, Virginia Woolf leads us on a transformative journey through the liberating powers of the mind. From an exploration of why women were barred from writing and under what conditions they might break free, to the solace derived from haunting London’s streets, these essays and stories present Woolf at her most impassioned, rendering the pursuit of liberty one of life’s most poetic adventures.

Selected from the books A Room of One’s Own, The Waves and Street Haunting and Other Essays by Virginia Woolf
