“Radiant as [To the Lighthouse] is in its beauty, there could never be a mistake about it: here is a novel to the last degree severe and uncompromising.

“Radiant as [To the Lighthouse] is in its beauty, there could never be a mistake about it: here is a novel to the last degree severe and uncompromising. I think that beyond being about the very nature of reality, it is itself a vision of reality.”—Eudora Welty, from the Introduction   The serene and maternal Mrs. Ramsay, the tragic yet absurd Mr. Ramsay, and their children and assorted guests are on holiday on the Isle of Skye. From the seemingly trivial postponement of a visit to a nearby lighthouse, Woolf constructs a remarkable, moving examination of the complex tensions and allegiances of family life and the conflict between men and women.

Not much to offer in the typical plot-driven genre, but a g...

4.5
I found To the Lighthouse a little slow and difficult to get into to begin with. As someone who tried to read Mrs Dalloway in lower sixth, and who ended up giving up in frustration, I wasn't especially looking forward to this part of the module. But once you get used to Woolf's prose style, and get ...

2.0 To the Lighthouse
I can appreciate the delicate language which Virginia Woolf used in this book. I can appreciate that she accomplished the development of characters without anything really happening. I can appreciate...ok enough. I just didn't really enjoy this book. I may give it another try at some point in my lif...

5.0 To The Lighthouse
This is going to be one of those books that I will dwell on, with my thoughts evolving as I turn it over in my mind. What follows is some of what I was thinking about as I read. The novel shows us the Ramsay family and some of their guests at a seaside house on just two days, separated by years. T...
