Abstract

The article investigates the nature of "spectral" or ghostly writing by retracing notions of loss and mourning from Jacques Derrida's "Mémoires" in Virginia Woolf's "Jacob's Room." It analyzes notions of name, naming, and absence of the named in Woolf's text. The author suggests that Jacob's room shows the possibility of a certain text, outside the coordinates of which Jacob's name does not make any sense.
