Jacob's Room

ByVirginia WoolfMonika Žagar

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Jacob’s Room is a groundbreaking exploration of the stream-of-consciousness technique with which Virginia Woolf since became associated. Here we find Woolf’s familiar eye on social conventions and political realities of her time, often described with irony and wit. Jacob’s Room is a novel that stays with us for days, months, then disappears until a sentence, an ironic comment bubbles up unexpectedly. As readers, we are asked to refrain from trying to piece together a narrative, but rather to follow the stream of shifting perspectives that illuminate the central elusive character of Jacob. Is he only an illusion in other people’s minds? This novel’s magnificent descriptions and unparalleled lyricism makes Jacob’s Room a compelling read. Edited and introduced by Monika Žagar this volume makes the classical text available to new generations of readers.
