Description:
Three Guineas is written as a series of letters in which Virginia Woolf ponders the efficacy of donating to various causes to prevent war. In reflecting on her situation as the 'daughter of an educated man' in 1930s England, Woolf challenges liberal orthodoxies and marshals vast research to make discomforting and still-challenging arguments about the relationship between gender and violence, and about the pieties of those who fail to see their complicity in war-making.

In these stories conventional notions of plot and character are abandoned for a stream of consciousness, almost dream-like form of prose. Readers will find the brevity of this volume helpful in overcoming any unfamiliarity with this style of writing.

Virginia Woolf's second novel is both a love story and a social comedy, yet it also subtly undermines these traditions, questioning a woman's role and the very nature of experience. A superb book that you will remember long after you read it.
