Jacob Flanders died in the First World War. The life he left behind wasn't just unfinished, but unresolved: he'd never been able to reconcile his passsion for classical culture with the jarring reality of the world around him; never been able to comne to terms with lonelieness; never, in the end, been able to complete what passes for a rite of massage in a world still coming to grips with the reality of modernity (as, in the end, we still are today). All that remains of Jacob's life he bits of clutter that he left behind him -- and those who loved him must come to terms with those. If they can. If we can.

One of the best examples of Woolf's modernist innovation, the story starts in Jacob's childhood and follows him through college at Cambridge, and then into adulthood. The narrative is told mainly through the perspectives of the women in Jacob's life, including the repressed Clara Durrant and the uninhibited young art student Florinda, with whom he has an affair. His time in London forms a large part of the story, though towards the end of the novel he travels to Italy, then Greece.Product Description:
