Jacob’s Room

Know your Classics #3

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. 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.
