Abstract:

This landmark novel tells the story of the all-too-brief life of Jacob Flanders, from his childhood in Scarborough through his student years at Cambridge and his bachelor days in London to his death while still a young man during World War I. Though he is an object of love and desire for many of the characters in the novel, Jacob remains curiously unknowable during his short life, as remote and mysterious as the classical landscapes and Greek ruins to which he is drawn. His room, the focus of so much longing and wondering over the course of the novel, is opened to those who care about him only after his death. This haunting elegy marks Woolf's assumption of her full powers as a Modernist novelist. -- Back cover.
