Abstract:

With its publication in 1922, Virginia Woolf revolutionized the modern novel with this work. Based on the life of her own brother, this unforgettable book chronicles the life and times of Jacob Flanders, from childhood to his death in World War I. An untraditional tale focusing on a flow of random impressions through the minds of its characters. This remains an important work in the development of the novel form--and a shining example of Woolf's genius and literary daring. Introduction by David Denby.
