Author of ‘Village in the Jungle’
Civil servant and chronicler of his life in Ceylon
In the West, Leonard Woolf, civil servant and author is known primarily as the husband of Virginia Woolf, one of the greatest writers to emerge in the twentieth century. However in Sri Lanka Leonard Woolf holds an affectionate place in the hearts of many Sri Lankans as the author of ‘Village in the Jungle’, a book chronicling village life and considered as a sociological description of south-east Ceylon in the early 1900’s. Village in the Jungle represents a shift in twentieth century consciousness as it shines a light of intelligent sympathy on the desperately poor villagers.
