Virginia Woolf :
Art, Modernism, St Ives & Jacob’s Room
Study Day led by Sarah Latham Phillips MA
Virginia Woolf's novels of the 1920's are highly innovative, creative and Modernist in their design. We will study in depth Jacob’s Room (1922), and look too, at the importance of St Ives, Cornwall and Art to her life and work.
