Une chambre à soi by Virginia Woolf Summary

Nouvelle traduction par Jean-Yves Cotté de l’essai qui bouleversa toute la condition féminine à l’échelle de son siècle, et qui rassemble une série de conférences sur le thème de la fiction et des femmes que Virginia Woolf donna en 1928 à l'université de Cambridge. « Une femme doit avoir de l'argent et un lieu à elle si elle veut écrire de la fiction. » À la manière d'un roman, et s'appuyant sur l'histoire littéraire, Virginia Woolf retrace le cheminement qui l'a conduite vers cette célèbre thèse, qui reste incontournable de nos jours. Chef-d’œuvre de la littérature féministe, ce texte met en perspective la question de l'écriture et des femmes au sein de la littérature contemporaine. « J’aime souvent les femmes. J’aime leur anticonformisme. J’aime leur complétude. J’aime leur anonymat. »

Une chambre à soi by Virginia Woolf Summary

« Une femme, pour être en mesure d’écrire, doit avoir de l’argent et une chambre à elle ; et cela, comme vous allez le voir, ne résout en rien le grand problème de ce qu’est la vraie nature de la femme et la vraie nature de la littérature. » Virginia Woolf interroge dans cet essai incontournable toutes les constructions historiques, économiques et sociales qui, au fil des siècles, ont empêché les femmes d’écrire, de penser et de créer avec la même liberté que les hommes. Avec un regard volontairement impertinent et résolument moderne, elle mène une réflexion remarquable sur « les femmes et la littérature », et nous livre un texte féministe intemporel et nécessaire. Traduction et notes de Sophie Chiari. Préface de Lauren Bastide.

A Room of One's Own by Virginia Woolf,General Press Summary

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, she takes on the establishment, using her gift of language to dissect the world around her and give voice to those who are without. 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. Woolf's blazing polemic on female creativity, the role of the writer, and the silent fate of Shakespeare's imaginary sister remains a powerful reminder of a woman's need for financial independence and intellectual freedom.

A Room of One's Own and Three Guineas by Virginia Woolf Summary

Intellectual freedom depends on material things. Poetry depends on intellectual freedom. And women have always been poor ... 'In these two classic essays of feminist literature, Woolf argues passionately for women's intellectual freedom and their role in challenging the drive towards fascism and conflict. In A Room of One's Own she explores centuries of limitations placed on women, as well as celebrating the creative achievements of the women writers who overcame these obstacles. In this first history of women's writing, she describes the importance of education, financial independence, and equa.

A Room of One's Own by Ellen Bayuk Rosenman Summary

A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction, wrote Virginia Woolf. Published in 1920, A Room of One's Own has often been heralded as the first modern work of feminist criticism. It remains one of the most widely read, quoted, and analyzed texts of its kind. Ellen Rosenman describes the book's genesis as the sense of exclusion Woolf and many women experienced when confronted with the sexism and elitism of the British university system of their day. Rosenman offers a balanced appraisal, refusing to ignore the difficulties with Woolf's argument and in particular, her inconsistencies and contradictions.

Women and Fiction [A Room of One's Own] by Virginia Woolf Summary

2015 Reprint of 1960 Edition. Full Facsimile of the original edition. "Women and Fiction" was first published in the U.S. in Forum Magazine, a prominent literary journal of the 1920's It is the principle essay and title of a series of lectures Woolff delivered at Newnham College and Girton College, two women's colleges at Cambridge University in October 1928. This essay and the Lectures would eventually be published as "A Room of One's Own" in 1929. In this essay Woolf traces the reasons for the very limited achievements among women novelists through the centuries. Why did they fail? They failed because they were not financially independent; they failed because they were not intellectually free; they failed because they were denied the fullest worldly experience. Mrs. Woolf imagines what would have happened to a hypothetical sister of Shakespeare (who possessed all his genius) because she lived in the eighteenth century; she insists that, whatever her gifts, no woman in that age of wife-beating could have written the plays. She shows what did happen in the nineteenth century to the Brontes and George Eliot because they lacked full participation in life; even George Eliot, the "emancipated" woman, lived with a man prosaically in St. John's Wood, while Tolstoy roamed the world and lived with gypsies; and "War and Peace" was as impossible for a woman to write then as "Lear" three centuries before. This short essays remains an important feminist text.

A Room of One's Own Illustarted by Virginia Woolf Summary

A Room of One's Own is an extended essay by Virginia Woolf. First published on 24 October 1929, the essay was based on a series of lectures she delivered at Newnham College and Girton College, two women's colleges at Cambridge University in October 1928. While this extended essay in fact employs a fictional narrator and narrative to explore women both as writers of and characters in fiction, the manuscript for the delivery of the series of lectures, titled "Women and Fiction", and hence the essay, are considered non-fiction. The essay is generally seen as a feminist text, and is noted in its argument for both a literal and figural space for women writers within a literary tradition dominated by patriarchy.

A Room of One's Own by Tim Smith-Laing,Fiona Robinson Summary

A Room of One's Own is a very clear example of how creative thinkers connect and present things in novel ways. Based on the text of a talk given by Virginia Woolf at an all-female Cambridge college, Room considers the subject of 'women and fiction.' Woolf’s approach is to ask why, in the early 20th century, literary history presented so few examples of canonically 'great' women writers. The common prejudices of the time suggested this was caused by (and proof of) women's creative and intellectual inferiority to men. Woolf argued instead that it was to do with a very simple fact: across the centuries, male-dominated society had systematically prevented women from having the educational opportunities, private spaces and economic independence to produce great art. At a time when 'art' was commonly considered to be a province of the mind that had no relation to economic circumstances, this was a novel proposal. More novel, though, was Woolf's manner of arguing and proving her contentions: through a fictional account of the limits placed on even the most privileged women in everyday existence. An impressive early example of cultural materialism, A Room of One's Own is an exemplary encapsulation of creative thinking.

Foulards et hymens by Mona ELTAHAWY Summary

​Essai coup-de-poing sur le calvaire vécu par les femmes dans le monde arabe, état des lieux accablant de la misogynie ambiante dans un Moyen-Orient travaillé par les extrémismes, Foulards et hymens est un document choc, brillant et nécessaire. Nous, les femmes arabes, vivons dans une culture qui nous est fondamentalement hostile. Face à ce constat, la journaliste égyptienne Mona Eltahawy, elle-même emprisonnée, battue, sexuellement agressée sur la place Tahrir en 2011, a décidé de prendre la parole. Dire la difficulté de vivre dans une société patriarcale qui diabolise la femme, la cache, la rejette. Dire la situation de ces femmes forcées de porter le hijab et le niqab, embarquées en pleine rue pour un " test de virginité ", battues, violées, excisées, mutilées. Dire que si le monde arabe hait ses femmes, c'est parce qu'il les craint. Qu'il craint ce qui se trouve sous le voile, le nie, piétine son existence, sous prétexte de mieux le préserver. Parler pour libérer la parole féminine. Car comme nous le rappelle Mona Eltahawy : l'acte le plus subversif qu'une femme puisse commettre est de parler de sa vie comme si elle importait réellement.
