Woolf begins to experiment with the novel form while demonstrating her affection for the literature of the past
It is doing so now
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
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..
Life has to be faced to be rejected then accepted on new terms with rapture
