Summary

El ensayo sobre la condición de la mujer que se ha convertido en un icono de la literatura y del feminismo.

«Virginia Woolf es dios, nadie ha escrito mejor.» —Milena Busquets
 
Considerado uno de los textos fundadores del feminismo moderno, Una habitación propia (1929) puso en circulación ideas como la importancia de la independencia económica de la mujer y la necesidad de refutar su representación histórica en calidad de pura musa del artista. La célebre sentencia que le da título, «Una mujer debe tener dinero y una habitación propia si va a escribir ficción», sigue resonando en nuestro tiempo y llamando a vincular lo personal y lo político. La presente edición cuenta con la insuperable traducción de Jorge Luis Borges, que ya en vida de la autora la llamó «una de las inteligencias e imaginaciones más delicadas» de la literatura inglesa y notó que, en este libro construido con gracia musical, «alternan el ensueño y la realidad y encuentran su equilibrio».

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

An essay on the condition of women that has become an icon of literature and Feminism.
 
“Virginia Woolf is god, no one writes better than her.” —Milena Busquets


A Room of One’s Own is an extended essay by Virginia Woolf. First published in 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 and characters in fiction, the manuscript for the delivery of the series of lectures, titled Women and Fiction, and hence the essay, are considered nonfiction. The essay is 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.
