A Room of One's Own is an extended essay by Virginia Woolf. First published on 24 October 1929, the essay was based on a series of lectures she delivered at Newnham College and Girton College, two women's colleges at Cambridge University in October 1928. While this extended essay in fact employs a fictional narrator and narrative to explore women both as writers of and characters in fiction, the manuscript for the delivery of the series of lectures, titled "Women and Fiction", and hence the essay, are considered non-fiction. The essay is generally seen as a feminist text, and is noted in its argument for both a literal and figural space for women writers within a literary tradition dominated by patriarchy.

This eBook has been formatted to the highest digital standards and adjusted for readability on all devices. Detective-Inspector Gabriel Hanaud has been described as the "first major fiction police detective of the Twentieth Century". He was modelled on two real-life heads of the Paris Sûreté, Macé and Goron. Émile Gaboriau's Monsieur Lecoq was also an acknowledged inspiration. Mason wanted to physically differentiate Hanaud from Sherlock Holmes as much as possible, and so he made him stout and broad-shouldered in contrast to Holmes who was thin. He often relies on psychological methods to solve cases and is assisted by his friend, the fastidious Mr Julius Ricardo, a former City of London financier. Hanaud was portrayed on screen several times - with adaptations of At the Villa Rose and its sequel The House of the Arrow. He has been seen as one of a number of influences on the creation of Agatha Christie's Belgian detective Hercule Poirot.Contents:At the Villa RoseThe Affair at the ...
