Abstract:

Jacob Flanders is a young man passing from adolescence to adulthood in a hazy rite of passage. From his boyhood on the windswept shores of Cornwall to his days as a student in Cambridge, his elusive, chameleon-like character is gradually revealed in a stream of loosely related incidents and impressions: whether through his mother's letters, his friend's conversations, or the thoughts of the women who adore him. Then we glimpse him as a young man, caught under the glare of a London streetlamp. It is 1914, hi is twenty-six and Europe is on the brink of war. This tantalizing novel heralded Woolf's bold departure from the traditional methods of the novel, with its experimental play between time and reality, memory and desire. In her introduction, Sue Roe considers the crucial role of Jacob's Room in Woolf's development as a Modernist author. This edition includes a map of central London of the period and notes. -- Back cover.
