    611 The Years, Virginia WoolfThe Years is a 1937 novel by Virginia Woolf, the last she published in her lifetime The complexity of the writing style of Virginia Woolf puts the reader in a barrage that, even at the end of his stories, does not leave the readers The Years is story of boys, girls, father, mother, uncle, grandfather, cousins, daughters, servants and a family It traces the history of the genteel Pargiter family from the 1880s to the present day of the mid 1930s At the beginning of each section, and sometimes as a transition within sections, Woolf describes the changing weather all over Britain, taking in both London and countryside as if...

    May 2nd 2015The Years is Virginia Woolf s ninth novel, and since it is composed of a series of vignettes about the Pargiter family covering a fifty year period, it is tempting to review it as if it were an old photograph album, one of those with layers of tissue to protect the images As we slide the delicate paper aside, each image gradually assembles itself 1880 A family group The bewhiskered patriarch is squarely camped on the only chair, one elbow propped against a little table on which sits an elaborate china teapot His grown and semi grown children are massed about him He looks as if he has just finished speaking The others look like they haven t yet begun The mother is missing from the picture.Next page 1891 This time the image is of a London trolleybus , the kind that ran on tram tracks and were pulled by horses There s a woman sitting on the upper deck She looks uncomfortable travelling shoulder to shoulder with strangers but she needs to get to her workplace She also looks like she doesn t speak about her work to many people, least of all to her father when she diligently returns home every afternoon at five o clock to serve his tea.1907 In the centre of the photograph a woman pours tea for her dau...

    The Years is a mature novel but also a hybrid work straddling a family saga and a collection of robbed moments that would have vanished into the river of time hadn t it been for Woolf s brilliant descriptive skills Capable of capturing the elusiveness of an atmosphere, of words left unsaid, of a particular landscape in any season, of the details that dress a room or the people that come in and go out of it scarcely leaving any trace, Woolf manages to give human quality to the passage of time, the real protagonist of this story.It s true that she uses the Pargiter, a bourgeois family in extinction at the beginning of the twentieth century, to flesh out something as ungraspable as the passage of time We get to know the Pargiters in their childhood days and observe, in fragmentary manner, the evolution of their personalities as they grow up and become active actors in their lives Oddly enough, the cumulative changes they suffer only strengthen their innate characters, boosting their childhood traits As usual in Woolf s novels, London appears as a backdrop to the Pargiters doings, materializing the transformation of the city and its society over the years The end of the Victorian era, WWI, the British colonies, women s causes or politics are addressed tangentially it s the alternating cycle of rebirth and decline of the ...

    I will not call the early going a slog, but the novel did fail to engage me until page 140 or so After that, all was well The novel took off as a proper Virginia Woolf novel should By the end of the long party scene which closes the book I was familiarly dazzled I have to admit that I find the content almost unsummarizable There s no plot to speak of It s the technique that astonishes Woolf s concern is not the quotidian, and often not the particular, but the structural There are any number of exchanges between characters, sometimes arguments, in which the reader has no idea of the issues involved Woolf deliberately takes the emphasis off the particular here and this somehow pulls the characterizations into the foreground strongly I m not sure how she does it It s impressive She uses the technique throughout As for the timeline, it seems almost capricious Here are the years which form the chapter heads 1880, 1891, 1907, 1908, 1910, 1911, 1913, 1914, 1917, 1918 and Present Day As with a bildungsroman, Woolf s interest is in the developmental arc over time The overwhelming feature of the novel is the sense of the result of experience But unlike the bildungsroman there is no movement toward a set goal, life being thinly plotted Neither is there a single central character but rather an ensemble effect Much takes place offstage births and deaths and weddings and...

    That is true, Rose thought as she took her pudding That is myself Again she had the odd feeling being two people at the same time.It has been months since I read The Years There have been many books in my life Light bulbs switched on and off over my head They glow and brightness hot to the touch I don t know how long they ll last but they often come back when I had been trying too hard to get inside other windows Hey, you forgot about it and left all of the lights on This next part might sound like a backhanded compliment In my little book loving heart that could it does not feel like a backhanded compliment I started to forget about The Pargiters when I was still reading about them There were men and their faces look like dream faces If you try to look at them up close you don t see anything I didn t care about the end or what happened to them You could sweep everyone out onto lit up streets in the safety of lit up faces for all I could care I was already in the other room with the lights left on When I was reading The Years I had a mental conversation going with myself about how I would explain my apathy about how it all turned out and be believed that they and the book had meant something to me I could have stopped reading it and never found out what happened What really happens, anyway People die and the next day and what s left is the other ...

    The Years by Virginia Woolf is the story of the Pargiter family The story starts in 1880 and the family is headed by Colonel Abel Pargiter The colonel has seven children Eleanor, Edward, Milly, Delia, Morris, Rose, Martin and a sickly wife In Woolf s style, some details are left out and considered not important such as the name of the Colonel s wife Her death which is written in detail than To the Lighthouse s Prue Ramsay s death, which was passed along to the reader in parenthetical information, but little is known or said about her It is the reaction of other characters that are important in the death of the wife and mother as well as character reactions to the world around them Reaction is important than action.Woolf s method of putting the reader in the head of the characters to listen to their thinking and to see their observations is perfected The book is so much than about the plot and plot development, which covers over fifty years, but the characters and their personal interactions The story extends to the extended Pargiter family and a few outsiders like Edward s friends at Oxford, one who marries his sister Milly The housemaid, Crosby, gets her own chapter, 1918, but it is also the shortest chapter and is used to mark the end of the war Inside ...

    Other reviews tell me that this isn t as good as Mrs Dalloway or To The Lighthouse having read all three books now, I will concede the Mrs Dalloway point, but I think I liked The Years better than To the Lighthouse The two stories are similar, in that they deal with an extended family and the perspective switches from person to person and the closest you get to an action scene is everyone sitting around and talking, but the scope of The Years is much wider it deals with several generations of a family and spans decades, rather than a couple years and seemed, at least to me, to be slightly easier to follow than To the Lighthouse I would definitely have better luck explaining the plot of this book to someone who had never read it But that s not what I wanted to talk about, and not what you came here to see The reason I write Woolf book reviews isn t to write a critique of the books because who am I to analyze Woolf but to quote the everloving bejeezus out of whatever I just read, because no one is equipped to demonstrate the greatness of Virginia Woolf than Woolf ...

    Everybody was like this is really conventional Woolf, and I was like, Really I mean, is she every really conventional and people were like, Dood, this is nowhere near as good as To the Lighthouse or The Waves, so don t get your hopes up, and I was like, Well I haven t read The Waves, and people were like, What Dood You never read The Waves I m not sure we can have this conversation, and I was like, Oh man, I d better read The Waves, but first I have to read The Years for class, you know, and people were like, sure, okay, but when you re done you better go read The Waves, because even Leonard Woolf knew The Years was kind of a let down, even though it sold a lot, and I was like, okay, I ll keep it in mind, and then I went home and read The Years and you know what FUCK THE HATERZ, THIS BOOK RULEZ.Look people...

    But you may ask why The Years and not Mrs Dalloway first I don t know I think it was a fortunate to find it in my local library and by reading a few pages of it, I realized that I must read it first Did you know that I tried to read Mrs Dalloway for than 3 times, and even once I read almost half of the book, but I failed to finish it I was losing my hope I thought Woolf is not my type Reading A room of one s own opened my eyes to many things That Virginia Woolf mainly concentrates on what kinds of things around us Let me think It is a book on women, writing and novels but you see she s describing a cat without a tail in the yard of Oxford University Amazing huh And then she compares herself with that cat I don t think she was a revolutionary feminist She didn t write a book like The golden notebook of Doris Lessing She is not The woman destroyed of Simone de Beauvoir, despite her life I think she was beyond all these things Although I am not a professional Woolf reader, after reading the years I felt I discovered something new i...

    Reviewed in conjunction with Margery Sharp s Lise Lillywhite One of the things I do in Geneva is hang out at the local flea market trying to suppress my urge to preserve dead lives Every week you ll see people disrespectfully pawing over the beloved libraries of the deceased, libraries which with possibly indecent haste, have been taken away by market vendors who, I can imagine, don t pay a cent for them It is merely enough that they are willing to cart them off There in the market they sit in boxes, 2CHF a book Amongst them will often be intimate belongings such as photo albums, travel diaries or autograph books Every time I see this, I want to save the memory even if nobody else does Could I not keep just a skeleton of the library s existence As it is, my own library is, as much as anything else, a cemetery of book bones, nothing as whole as a skeleton no doubt, but each death provides my shelves with something There are many reasons for loving a book Some of mine I love simply because they belonged to people who cared about them and I have inherited them if only by chance Not least, the li...
