  • "To the Lighthouse features the serene and maternal Mrs. Ramsay, the tragic yet absurd Mr. Ramsay, and their children and assorted guests who are on holiday on the Isle of Skye.

  • "Arranged in three parts, the first called "The window," describes a day during Mr. and Mrs. Ramsay's house party at their country home by the sea. Mr. Ramsay is a distinguished scholar ... whose mind works rationally, heroically and rather icily ... The Ramsays have arranged to take a boat out to the lighthouse, the next morning, and their little son James is disappointed when a change in weather makes it impossible. The second section, called "Time passes" describes the seasons and the house, unused and decaying, in the years after Mrs. Ramsay's death. In the third section, "The lighthouse" Mr. Ramsay and his friends are back at the house. He takes the postponed trip to the lighthouse with his now 16-year-old son, who is at last able to communicate silently with him and forgive him for being different from his mother."@en

This year, they are accompanied by guests: as the adults paint, talk, muse and explore, young James Ramsay suggests an expedition to the nearby lighthouse. They expect these summers to go on forever; but, as the First World War looms, the integrity of family and society will be fatally challenged. Ten years later, one of the guests returns to the island - and another trip to the lighthouse is proposed..."
  • "To the Lighthouse is at once a vivid impressionist depiction of a family holiday, and a meditation on a marriage, on parenthood and childhood, on grief, tyranny and bitterness. Its use of stream of consciousness, reminiscence and shifting perspectives, give the novel an intimate, poetic essence, and at the time of publication in 1927 it represented an utter rejection of Victorian and Edwardian literary values."
  • "Virginia Woolf's most popular novel, first published in 1927, is one of the most widely studied modernist texts. In this new edition, Sandra Kemp provides a fresh reading of the work, an introduction to Woolf and a survey of the novel's critical reception. Significant textual variants are included, along with notes and bibliography, making this an ideal edition for students of literary modernism and women's writing."
  • "An English family's complex lives are followed and picked up again after a ten-year hiatus in order to explore the effects of time."

  • "Classics. Every summer, the Ramsays visit their summer home on the beautiful Isle of Skye, surrounded by the excitement and chatter of family and friends, mirroring Virginia Woolf's own joyful holidays of her youth. But as time passes, and in its wake the First World War, the transience of life becomes ever more apparent through the vignette of the thoughts and observations of the novel's disparate cast. A landmark of high modernism and the most autobiographical of Virginia Woolf's novels, TO THE LIGHTHOUSE explores themes of loss, class structure and the question of perception, in a hauntingly beautiful memorial to the lost but not forgotten."
