Jacob's room : authoritative text, Virginia Woolf and the novel, criticism

He left everything just as it was... Did he think he would come back' Jacob's Room was the first book in Virginia Woolf's unique, experimental style, making it an important text of early Modernism. Ostensibly, the story is about the life of Jacob Flanders, the title character, who is evoked purely by other characters' perceptions and memories of him. Jacob remains an absence throughout. Elegiac in tone, the work beautifully memorializes the longing and pain of a generation that lost so many of its most promising young men to World War I. Upon it's release E.M. Forster remarked, "amazing... a new type of fiction has swum into view." The Art of The Novella Series Too short to be a novel, too long to be a short story, the novella is generally unrecognized by academics and publishers. Nonetheless, it is a form beloved and practiced by literature's greatest writers. In the Art Of The Novella series, Melville House celebrates this renegade art form and its practitioners with titles that are, in many instances, presented in book form for the first time.

  • "Jacob Flanders first appears as a child at the seaside. We follow his progress through school, Cambridge, London, Paris and Italy, and on to his death in the first world war. Indirectly and with impressionistic strokes a young man's life is created, and the novel offers an affecting tribute to the generation which was decimated in the great war."
  • "Jacob Flanders, a sensitive young man raised in Edwardian England, discovers as an adult that his life is lacking, but his search for fulfillment is sidetracked by the outbreak of World War I. Includes extracts from Woolf's diaries and letters, comments on the novel, a selection of short stories by Woolf, critical essays, and other reference material."
  • "Woolf's first distinctly modernist novel follows an aloof yet beloved young man from his childhood through his student days to his too-early death during World War I. Annotated and with an introduction by Vara Neverow."@en
  • "Widely regarded as one of the most important modernist writers, Virginia Woolf was also one of the most important female authors of the twentieth century. Jacob's Room, Woolf's third novel, is an experimental character study that delves into the life of protagonist Jacob Flanders, largely through the eyes of the friends, acquaintances, family members, and lovers who surround him."@en

  • "Set in pre-war England, Jacob's story starts when he is still a child, and the novel follows him through college at Cambridge, and then into adulthood. Told mainly through the eyes of women in his life, Jacob's time in London forms a large part of the story, leading to the beginning of World War I."@en
  • "Tells the story of a sensitive young man, Jacob Flanders, who finds himself unable to reconcile his love of classical culture with the chaotic reality of World WarI. 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."@en

  • "Jacob's Room is Virginia Woolf's first truly experimental novel. It is a portrait of a young man, who is both representative and victim of the social values which led Edwardian society into war. Jacob's life is traced from the time he is a small boy playing on the beach, through his years in Cambridge, then in artistic London, and finally making a trip to Greece, but this is no orthodox biography. Jacob is presented in glimpses, in fragments, as Woolf breaks down traditional ways of representing character and experience. Her stylistic innovations are also conscious attempts to realize and develop women's writing, and the novel dramatizes Woolf's interest in the ways both language and social environments shape differently the lives of women and men."
  • "Flitsen uit het leven van een 26-jarige man die het fragmentarische van alle menselijke contact verbeelden."
  • "Jacob is alive, yet to determine. But that he exists, that he stands as does a monument is certain, and wherever he stands we recognize him for the same and are touched by his outline."@en
  • "In a stream-of-consciousness style, the reader follows Jacob Flanders through his coming-of-age experiences, from England's rocky coast to Greece. When his father, Seabrook Flanders, passed away, Jacob becomes a somewhat aimless boy. As Jacob grows, his aimless spirit wanders like a butterfly from flower to flower, sipping nectar, but never lighting for long in one spot."

  • "'Jacob's room' marks the bold affirmation of her Virginia Woolf's voice and search for a new form to express her view that the human soul orientates itself afresh every now & then. It is doing so now. No one can see it whole therefore. Jacob's life is presented in subtle, delicate and tantalising glimpses. The novel gaps and silences are as replete with meaning as the wicker armchair creaking in the empty room."
  • "Follows the life of Jacob Flanders, a fatherless boy, from his early years until his death in the First World War."@en
  • "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. -Amazon.com."@en
  • "Perhaps the best read as a companion to Woolf's long anti-war essay Three guineas, this novel employs the conventions of a bildüngsroman to develop the expectations of a promising young man, only to pull them out from under him. Woolf illustrates what happens when a young man is denied the opportunity to excel and is instead sent to war. This book also serves as an elegy for the missing generation lost in the trenches of World War I."@en

  • "Based on the life of her brother, this unforgettable book chronicles the life and times of Jacob Flanders-and remains an important work in the development of the novel form, and a shining example of Woolf's genius and literary daring."@en
