Modern Classics To The Lighthouse

by Virginia Woolf
Foreword by Hermione Lee
Editor Stella Mcnichol

Penguin UK (PB) | October 26, 2000 | Trade Paperback

Not yet rated | write a review

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 saw the novel as an elegy to her own parents, and in her diary she wrote, 'I used to think of him [father] and mother daily, but writing The Lighthouse laid them in my mind.'
