  • ""The Waves is one of the greatest achievements in modern literature. Commonly considered the most important, challenging and ravishingly poetic of Virginia Woolf's novels, it was in her own estimation 'the most complex and difficult of all my books'. This edition will be the most authoritative, most fully collated and annotated text available to scholars to date, and for considerable time to come. It maps the text of The Waves from the first British edition to all other editions published in Woolf's lifetime, as well as to all extant proofs. The text is presented in clearly readable form, with page-by-page direction to emendation, variants, and notes. The substantial introduction includes a detailed account of the novel's composition, publication and early critical reception. There are extensive explanatory notes on the text, a full chronology of composition and publication and a more general chronology covering Woolf's life and works"--"
  • "Against the background of the sea, the author presents a group of characters from childhood to old age who speak in sililoquy, and we see them as they appear to themselves and to each other. In the end one of the characters sums up the effect of their lives as a whole."

  • "One of Woolf's most experimental novels, The Waves presents six characters in monologue - from morning until night, from childhood into old age - against a background of the sea. The result is a glorious chorus of voices that exists not to remark on the passing of events but to celebrate the connection between its various individual parts."@en
  • "Set against the backdrop of a seaside dreamscape, Virginia Woolf's experimental novel, The Waves, follows the lives of six children'Bernard, Susan, Rhoda, Neville, Jinny and Louis'from birth to death as they fleetingly unite around the elusive figure of a seventh child, Percival. Largely abandoning traditional plot structure, The Waves recounts the thoughts, feelings and perceptions of all six characters in a series of interwoven soliloquies that simultaneously span the course of their lives and the course of a single day. Many of the characters depicted in Woolf's The Waves are said to be inspired by the conversations and correspondences she shared with her peers; friends and writing rivals such as T. S. Eliot, E. M. Forster, and Lytton Strachey.
