  1. Page 48 of “A Room of One’s Own” by Virginia Woolf starts off by discussing Williams hypothetical sister named Judith. William was permitted to go to school, however, Judith wasn’t sent to school. Judith was told “to mend the stockings or mind the stew and not moon about with books and papers”. This justifies the central idea: men being superior to women. Later in the excerpt, Judith would be engaged to someone that she doesn’t have any desire to be with. Woolf manifests how crucial marriage is to the family when the father beats his daughter for being unhappy with the idea, but then turns to begging her to “not shame him” by refusing to be married. In Shakespeareans time, a women’s marriage gave the family importance, yet the women has no control in her personal life and she can’t even choose who to marry. Woolf conveys the oppression women face in marriage and connects it to oppression of women in many other aspects of life.


  2. Homework 1 Objective summary

    “A Room of One’s Own” by Virginia Wolfe is a story that attempts to illustrate a life of a woman during the time of Shakespeare. The author creates a character who is the sister of Shakespeare, but just as gifted as him. The reason for this is to emphasize the central idea that a persons gender played a major role in depicting that persons status is that society. Page 48 of the story is simply a summary of Shakespeare’s life. The author does that by quickly explaining what was expected of Shakespeare. She said, “Shakespeare himself went, very probably- his mother was an heiress- to the grammar school, where he may have learnt Latin – Ovid, Virgil and Horace- and the elements of grammar and logic.” This part of the text is trying to insinuate that Shakespeare had many opportunities, that women would not have. Earliar in the text she had stated that “it would have been impossible, completely and entirely for any woman to have written the plays of Shakespeare in the Age of Shakespeare.” Throughout the rest of the page the author simply relays how Shakespear was able to steadily rise to fame in the world of theatre. From the man that watched the horses to the one who wrote the plays.
