Description - Night and Day / Jacob's Room by Virginia Woolf
Virginia Woolf's second novel, 'Night and Day' (1919), portrays the gradual changes in a society, the patterns and conventions of which are slowly disintegrating; where the representatives of the younger generation struggle to forge their own way, for "...life has to be faced: to be rejected; then accepted on new terms with rapture". Woolf begins to experiment with the novel form while demonstrating her affection for the literature of the past. 'Jacob's Room' (1922), Woolf's third novel, marks the bold affirmation of her own 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's gaps and silences are as replete with meaning as the wicker armchair creaking in the empty room. AUTHOR: Virginia Woolf has been recognised as one of the greatest novelists of the 20th century and one of the first Modernist writers. Her 'stream-of-consciousness' style, in which the character's thought processes are conveyed, has led to her being considered as one of the greatest innovators in the English language.
