JacobÃ¢ÂÂs Room is Virginia WoolfÃ¢ÂÂs experimental third novel, set in England during the halcyon days before World War I. The text reprinted here is the first British edition, which Woolf approved, and which retains her original layout, including paragraph spacing.A generous Ã¢ÂÂContextsÃ¢ÂÂ section provides extracts from WoolfÃ¢ÂÂs diaries and letters as well as comments on the novel from her fellow writers and friends, among them E. M. Forster and T. S. Eliot. Also included are the short stories Ã¢ÂÂThe Mark on the Wall,Ã¢ÂÂ Ã¢ÂÂKew Gardens,Ã¢ÂÂ and Ã¢ÂÂAn Unwritten Novel,Ã¢ÂÂ which Woolf viewed as early experiments with the innovative method used in JacobÃ¢ÂÂs Room. An additional short story, Ã¢ÂÂA WomanÃ¢ÂÂs College from Outside,Ã¢ÂÂ which Woolf originally intended to be Chapter 10 of JacobÃ¢ÂÂs Room, is also included. Finally, WoolfÃ¢ÂÂs classic essay Ã¢ÂÂModern Novels,Ã¢ÂÂ written shortly before she began work on JacobÃ¢ÂÂs Room, provides insight into her aesthetic and technique.
Ã¢ÂÂCriticismÃ¢ÂÂ is divided into two sections: Ã¢ÂÂContemporary Reception and ReviewsÃ¢ÂÂ contains personal responses to the novel, from Lytton Strachey and E. M. Forster, as well as eleven reviews from contemporary periodicals. Ã¢ÂÂCritical EssaysÃ¢ÂÂ offers insightful interpretations by Judy Little, Alex Zwerdling, Kate Flint, Kathleen Wall, and Edward L. Bishop.
A Selected Bibliography is also included.
