JACOB'S ROOM, Virginia Woolf

JACOB'S ROOM, Virginia Woolf

"Jacob's Room (1922) comes as a tremendous surprise. The impossible has occurred.The style closely resembles that of Kew Gardens. The blobs of colour continue to drift past, but in their midst, interrupting their course like a closely sealed jar, rises the solid figure of a young man. In the sense jacob is alive-in what sense any of Virginia Woolf's characters live-we have yet to determine. But that he exists, that he stands as does a monument is curtain, and wherever he stands we recognize him for the same and are touched by his outline. The coherence of the book is even more amazing than its beauty. In the stream of glittering similes, unfinished sentences, hectic catalogues, unanchored proper names, we seem to be going nowhere. Yet the goal comes, the method and the matter prove to have been one, and looking back from the pathos of the closing scene we see for the moment the airy drifting atoms piled into a colonnade. The break with Night and Day and even with The Voyage Out is complete. A new type of fiction has swum into view ..."

--E. M. Forster
