Jacob's Room is Virginia Woolf's first truly experimental novel. It is a portrait of a young man, who is both representative and victim of the social values which led Edwardian society into war. Jacob's life is traced from the time he is a small boy playing on the beach, through his years in Cambridge, then in artistic London, and finally making a trip to Greece, but this is no orthodox biography. Jacob is presented in glimpses, in fragments, as Woolf breaks down traditional ways of representing character and experience. Her stylistic innovations are also conscious attempts to realize and develop women's writing, and the novel dramatizes Woolf's interest in the ways both language and social environments shape differently the lives of women and men.

I shall never forget the day I wrote "The Mark on the Wall" - all in a flash, as if flying, after being kept stone breaking for months. "The Unwritten Novel" was the great discovery, however. That - again in one second - showed me how I could embody all my deposit of experience in a shape that fitted it... I saw, branching out of the tunnel I made, when I discovered that method of approach, Jacob's Room, Mrs Dalloway etc - How I trembled with excitement.' The thrill Woolf got fromthese stories is readily apparent to the reader. She wrote them in defiance of convention, with a heady feeling of liberation and with a clear sense that she was breaking new ground. Indeed, if she had not made her bold and experimental forays into the short story in the period leading up to the publication of Jacob's Room (1922), it seems certain that her arrival as a great modernist novelist would have been delayed. Quirky, unrestrained, disturbing and surprising, many of these stories, particularly the early ones, are essential to an understanding of Woolf's development as a writer. She thought some of her short fiction might be 'unprintable' but, happily, she was mistaken.

How could a country seen as remote, backwards, and barely European become a pivotal site for reinventing the continent after the devastation of the Great War? Modernism and the New Spain argues that the "Spanish problem" - Spain's historically troubled relationship with Europe, from the Moorish invasions through the Inquisition to the twentieth century - animated a wide range of overlooked modernist formulations of cosmopolitanism. Gayle Rogers reconstructs an archive of cross-cultural collaborations that aimed to resolve these matters in order to demonstrate the surprising mutual constitution of two modernist movements - one in Britain, the other in Spain, and stretching at key moments to Ireland and the Americas. Writers including T. S. Eliot, James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, and Stephen Spender and a circle of their Spanish peers led by the philosopher Jose Ortega y Gasset cooperated to attach a host of cultural agendas to the rebirth of a European Spain as a microcosm for the emergence of a new continent. Their vision of Spain as the convergence of Europe's geographical, political, racial, and gendered margins culminated during the Spanish Civil War. Drawing on transnational literary studies, periodical studies, translation studies, and comparative literary history, Modernism and the New Spain illuminates why Spain has remained a problematic space on the scholarly map of international modernisms. Rogers synthesizes works of writers who were presumed to have little contact and to be separated by Europe's traditional divisions (North/South, Germanic/Latin, and expanding/declining empires). He combines extensive archival research with cutting-edge methodologies and arguments to redress the gaps between English- and Spanish-language criticism. Through innovative readings of foundational texts - Eliot's Criterion, Joyce's Ulysses, Woolf's Three Guineas - Rogers reveals modernism's symbiotic development with the works of Antonio Marichalar, Victoria Ocampo, Federico Garcia Lorca and others. In periodicals, fiction, poetry, translations, and correspondence, across the production and reception of texts, modernist writers created alliances that unified local and international reforms to reinvent Europe not in the London-Paris-Berlin nexus, but in Madrid.
