9780141194813: To The Lighthouse

This novel is an extraordinarily poignant evocation of a lost happiness that lives on in the memory. For years now the Ramsays have spent every summer in their holiday home in Scotland, and they expect these summers will go on forever. In this, her most autobiographical novel, Virginia Woolf captures the intensity of childhood longing and delight, and the shifting complexity of adult relationships. From an acute awareness of transcience, she creates an enduring work of art.

Review:

This classic character study takes on a new lease of life with Juliet Stevenson's masterful narration. She lends cohesion to the stream-of-conciousness passages, making them easier to follow. As Mrs Ramsay and Lily Briscoe explore live's questions, Stevenson applies vocal traits to each character, reflecting personalities and values. Both women speak in clear, kind tones, while gruffness captures Mr Ramsay's essence and sarcasm dominates Mr Tansley's. Light, airy notes accompany the children's words. Young James Ramsay's lighthouse journey and Lily's painting of Mr Ramsay tie the book's opening to the conclusion ten years later. Longed for in the beginning, both the endeavours are completes in the end, bringing resolution to the characters' inner struggles. --AudioFile 2008

Book Description Penguin UK, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 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.
