Description

Prized for their lyrical qualities, the novels of Virginia Woolf favor the psychological realms inhabited by her characters, where thoughts are so revealed that actions lose much of their importance. Most are also concerned with the structure of narrative, including the present novel, in which Woolf conveys the impression of time present and of time passing in individual experience as well as in the characters’ awareness of historic time.
Considered Woolf’s first original and distinguished work, Jacob’s Room (1922) concerns a sensitive young man, Jacob Flanders, who finds himself unable to reconcile his love of classical culture with the chaotic reality of World War I. His story unfolds in a series of brief impressions and conversations, stream-of-consciousness narratives, internal monologues, and letters.
This inexpensive edition of Woolf’s intense and affecting novel offers readers a first-rate example of subtle style and innovative techniques for which the author is admired.
