Description
Set in the halcyon days of pre-World War I innocence, Jacob's Room, 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 sunscorched landscape of Greece, his character is revealed in a stream of loosely related incidents, thoughts, and impressions:

"Listless is the air in an empty room, just swelling the curtain; the flowers in the jar shift. One fibre in the wicker armchair creaks, though no one sits there..".

Imparted in a poetic prose style reflecting her experiments with reality, memory, and time, Jacob's Room signals Woolf's bold departure from the traditional methods of the English novel.
