This book was interesting to read because my girlfriend read it at roughly the same time, only in French. That meant that we were able to chat about it, and it was fun to have a second opinion on the subjects that Woolf covered.

The gist is that Woolf argues that women need a room of their own and an income of £500 to be able to write, which may have been true back in the day but which I disagree with now. A woman needs a laptop of her own and an internet connection. But I can’t disagree with her appraisal of the lack of women in classical literature, even though it’s less true today.
