A Room of One's Own

A Room of One's Own

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.
