Amazon.de

Surprisingly, this long essay about society and art and sexism is one of Woolf's most accessible works. Woolf, a major modernist writer and critic, takes us on an erudite yet conversational--and completely entertaining--walk around the history of women in writing, smoothly comparing the architecture of sentences by the likes of William Shakespeare and Jane Austen, all the while lampooning the chauvinistic state of university education in the England of her day. When she concluded that to achieve their full greatness as writers women will need a solid income and a privacy, Woolf pretty much invented modern feminist criticism.

Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
In "A Room of One's Own," Virginia Woolf says that in order for a woman to write fiction, she must have money and a room of her own; I believe that to be, or to understand, an intellectual woman in this century, one must read this book. Unlike a sad number of feminist writers, Woolf does not make the mistake of tearing down the accomplishments of men in order to make room for those of women. Indeed, she speaks eloquently against just that danger throughout "A Room of One's Own," which is partly what allows it to stand not only as a feminist classic, but also as a classic piece of both literature and literary criticism. It is not often that an essay reaches creative heights great enough to establish itself equally as a work of art and an intellectual effort, but Woolf has done it here. She does not waste her words or her energy on destructive, angry prattling. She writes with a depth of humanity that challenges us to be better writers, better thinkers, and better people.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Woolf; one of the greatest feminist writers 9. August 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
After having read several books by so-called feminist writers I have decided for myself that Woolf is one of the greatest. A Room of One's Own is not only valuable for female writers, but for all women trying to fulfill their dreams. What I find interesting about Woolf is her ability to make her essay become so much like fiction, and thus, easier to read for many people. I am truly impressed by Woolf's work and would like to recommend her to those who are a little curious about what she has to contribute!!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Provision for Feminist Future 14. Dezember 1999
Format:Taschenbuch
70 years have passed since the first publication of "A Room of One's Own," and yet we have not seen as many dramatic changes, let alone improvements, in social mentality as early feminist thinkers like Virginia Woolf wished to provoke to establish women's new role as equal to men's. She argued that the reason why there was no female Shakespeare is not that women are biologically inferior to men but that there was simply no "room" for women to develop themselves, both metaphorically and realistically speaking. Therefore, in this book she encourages women to have a room of their own and a stable income to ensure a career. However, women, in the past as well as the present, have long been "grounded" by men. For a woman to have a room of her own and a stable income means that the woman is invading (from male chauvinistic viewpoint) men's territory, and this kind of behavior (and thoughts) is not to be allowed in male-dominated societies.
Early feminist thinkers like Virginia Woolf provided later generations with iron-cast proof (as far as I'm concerned) that women are no "second sex" by pointing out the false discriminations men put against women for men's own convenience. (Ironically, I see men suffer as well from doing so.) Thinkers like Virginia Woolf provided "rooms" to develop feminist thoughts, and these rooms also provoke controversies and debates because feminist way of thinking is revolutionary. At any rate, there would be no improvements of women's role in society if there were no Virginia Woolf and other first-wave feminist thinkers.
At the end of the twentieth century, in spite of the burgeoning "industry" of feminism, the real condition of women appears to be quite depressing.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A calmly observed feminist text of wider literary value. 18. September 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
The inoffensive feminist tone of this text should not confine it's readership to the predominantly female. It is indeed from that point of view interesting,valuable and easy reading,accessible to both male and female readers alike.But outwith the political undercurrants, the precise and poetic delicacy of the writing provides not only a pleasure for the reader but potent advice for the aspirant writer.If one needs look for further justifications as to the significance of these essays, then it could be viewed as an historical viewfinder, not of only sociological relevance, but also the evolvlution of modern literature. Buy it, read it, love it and read it again!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Feminism in early 20th century 1. Dezember 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Woolf's book is a treatise in examining what is holding women back from writing their best fiction. She tells of the hindrances of women's fiction writing throughout history, and also tells of the well-known parable of Shakespeare's sister. Painful at times, but telling the truth without falter, Woolf's book should be read by all fiction writers, feminists, and anyone who has suffered oppression.

Virginia Woolf rückt die Frage nach der Rolle der Frauen in der intellektuellen Geschichte in das richtige Licht und zeigt die Bedeutung der geistigen und vor allem finanziellen Unabhängigkeit in der Kunst, Literatur, etc.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Von der Gelegenheit zu großen Werken 18. Dezember 2008
Format:Taschenbuch
Der Titel "A room of one's one" bringt es genau auf den Punkt, was Virginia Woolf mit diesem Aufsatz/Vortrag sagen will: Um Großes zu schaffen, muss man dem/der Schaffenden auch die Rahmenbedingungen und die Gelegenheit dazu zugestehen. In dem vermeintlich vorzubereitenden Vortrag der Ich-Erzählerin stößt diese in ihren Recherchen auf viele von Männern stammende literarische Werke oder Meinungen über Frauen, aber wo bleibt die geistige Leistung der Frauen vergangener Jahrhunderte selbst? Eine auf klare Aufgabentrennung gerichtete Gesellschaft, die alles verpönt hat, was den Rollenbildern nicht entsprach, entzog den Frauen die Grundlage geistigen Schaffens. Dieses Büchlein umfasst nur etwas mehr als 100 Seiten, jedoch unglaublich viel an Inhalt. Die starke feministische Aussage stammt nicht von Angriffen auf die männliche Vorherrschaft über einen langen Zeitraum, sondern durch einfach ausgesprochene Wahrheiten und ist gerade deshalb so treffend. Das Buch wurde 1929 geschrieben, erstaunlich, wie weit die Erkenntnisse schon waren und wieviel noch bevorstand! Meines Erachtens eine große Bereicherung für jede denkende Frau und sehr empfehlenswert auch für jeden denkenden Mann.

if woman had no existence save in the fiction written by men, one would imagine her a person of the utmost importance; very various; heroic and mean; splendid and sordid; infinitely beautiful and hideous in the extreme; as great as a man, some think even greater.5 &quote;
