What is so special about Virginia Woolf? Her style? Her aesthetics? Her feminist voice? I would say a combination of all and particularly the fact that she dared to walk a path totally forbidden for the women of her era. And that was literary writing. She is mostly admired for her book-length essay A Room of One's Own, where she briefly states that a woman must have her own place and money in order to write fiction.
