The ideas presented in this book about feminism and pacifism are quite interesting, and I enjoyed thinking about them even after I finished the book. However, be warned: this is a very slow and somewhat boring read.

In this non-fiction work, Virginia Woolf presents three letters to "a man" regarding how a woman might prevent war. The letters showcase the feminist ideas of the age of anxiety and the terribly unstable world Virginia Woolf lived in while writing her book.

No guinea of earned money should go to rebuilding the college on the old plan just as certainly none could be spent upon building a college upon a new plan: therefore the guinea should be earmarked "Rags. Petrol. Matches." And this note should be attached to it. "Take this guinea and with it burn the college to the ground. Set fire to the old hypocrisies. Let the light of the burning building scare the nightingales and incarnadine the willows. And let the daughters of educated men dance round the fire and heap armful upon armful of dead leaves upon the flames. And let their mothers lean from the upper windows and cry, "Let it blaze! Let it blaze! For we have done with this 'education!”
― Virginia Woolf, Three Guineas
