The Years

Автор: Virginia Woolf

Короткое описание книги

The most popular of Virginia Woolf's novels during her lifetime, "The Years" is a savage indictment of British society at the turn of the century, edited with an introduction and notes by Jeri Johnson in "Penguin Modern Classics".

"The Years" is the story of three generations of the Pargiter family - their intimacies and estrangements, anxieties and triumphs - mapped out against the bustling rhythms of London's streets during the first decades of the twentieth century.

Growing up in a typically Victorian household, the Pargiter children must learn to find their footing in an alternative world, where the rules of etiquette have shifted from the drawing-room to the air-raid shelter.

A work of fluid and dazzling lucidity, "The Years" eschews a simple line of development in favour of a varied and constantly changing style, emphasises the radical discontinuity of personal experiences and historical events.

Virginia Woolf's penultimate novel celebrates the resilience of the individual self.
