Virginia Woolf’s ‘To The Lighthouse’



This is the only book of Virginia Woolf’s that I have read, and I really enjoyed it. Her style is called a ‘Stream of Consciousness’, and this is exactly what it is. The narration flows softly from psyche to psyche, and if you’re not careful then you’re carried all the way through the novel.

It is the story of a Victorian holiday home, and the family that inhabits it. What I really admire about Woolf’s writing is the way she can make the characters so disconnected from each other, and yet you can still feel the characters’ frustrations so vividly. It is clear why she has become a household name to so many, and I would happily read more of her style!


One thought on “Virginia Woolf’s ‘To The Lighthouse’

  1. I strongly suggest reading Virginia Woolf’s “A Room of Her Own” essay. I read it at least once or twice a year. She is an inspirational voice, and such a great vehicle of provoking thought.
