Jacob S Room (Dover Thrift Editions)by Virginia Woolf
Synopses & Reviews
Set in the halcyon days of pre-World War I innocence, Virginia Woolf's third novel follows the progress of a young man as he moves from adolescence to adulthood in a hazy rite of passage. Wandering through the windswept shores of Cornwall to the sun-scorched landscape of Greece, his character is revealed in a stream of loosely related incidents, thoughts, and impressions.
Brief impressions and conversations, internal monologues, and letters convey the story of a lonely young man unable to reconcile his classical ideals with the reality of World War I society. Sensitive exploration of character and existence.
The tale of Jacob Flanders, a lonely young man unable to reconcile his love of classical culture with the chaotic reality of World War I society, unfolds in a series of brief impressions and conversations, internal monologues, and letters. A sensitive examination of character development and the meaning of life.
