The concepts of conflict, complications, climax and turning point apply to fiction (and turning point especially to drama) but A Room of One's Own is a collection of speeches or lectures given at Cambridge University at the two women's colleges newly founded there.

If one must find these literary elements in Woolf's collection, then perhaps we might speculate that the story about Judith Shakespeare represents the climax with the reading from literature by Woolf's contemporaries representing the turning point. The conflict would be the attempt to find, then develop, womanness alongside the manness of male dominated literature with some complications exposed in male writings perused in the British Library.
