Description

To The Lighthouse is a novel by English writer Virginia Woolf, first published in 1927. It tells the story of the Ramsay family and their trips to the Isle of Skye in Scotland, where they are joined by friends such as the young painter, Lily Briscoe, and the poet Augustus Carmichael. With the plot playing a secondary role to emotions and philosophical musings, most of the book is written as thoughts and observations, with very little actual dialogue. The book is in three parts, the second one taking place ten years after the first, and the third one taking place ten years after the second. There is no main narrator, instead, the book is told through the perspectives of each character's consciousness, shifting from one to another, sometimes in mid-sentence.

Woolf wrote this book as a way of working through her own unresolved issues with her parents, and the novel does have similarities with her own life, including the fact that her family used to go on visits to St Ives in Cornwall. She described To The Lighthouse as 'easily the best of my books'.
