"Rooms of Our Own will charm and hearten fans of Woolf's works.Indeed, much of the delight and effectiveness of the book comes from Gubar's deft incorporation not only of Woolf's structure, but of her memorable turns of phrase. As an experiment, one cannot imagine this being done otherwise or better."
-- Maria DiBattista, professor of English and comparative literature, Princeton University
"Spoken from the heart, Rooms of Our Own provides a powerful antidote to the pessimism so often expressed about 'feminism' or 'the women's movement' or younger women's seeming lack of interest in battles that still need to be fought. Gubar, one of the foremost pioneers, addresses these issues with elegance and wit, elucidating the multiple currents swirling around gender studies and social activism today and illustrating why they still profoundly matter. Rooms of Our Own speaks as much to the students she so lovingly depicts as to those of us who teach them."
-- Brenda R. Silver, Mary Brinsmead Wheelock Professor, Dartmouth College
"If there is a young scholar, somewhere, who does not know Susan Gubar's work, or the history of feminist thought, Rooms of Our Own would make an excellent gift. Indeed, the book itself reads as a kind of gift: a gift to feminist scholars, to university communities, and to the reader rooted among either of these. Which is to say, this book is a gift to the people and institutions its author has lived among with such brilliance and wit for the past four decades as one of our most influential feminist literary critics."--Women's Studies Quarterly
