To the Lighthouse is me fifth novel by English modernist writer Virginia Woolf(1882-1941).Published in 1927,the novel narrates the visits of the Ramsay family ro the Isle of Skye in Scodand between 1910 and 1920.
1he story follows the tradition of modernist Iiterarure,focusing on philosophical introspection and stream of consciousness narration over plot,Like her contemporaries James Joyce and Mareel Proust,Virginia Woolf\'s goal was to make an aecurate depietion of the eomplexity of human relationships and the emotional spaces people inhabit through life.
To the Lighthouse adheres to this literary teehnique,but still maintains the story of the Ramsays and the events that unfold in their summer home during two days separated by ten years. 1he aetion shifts point of view several times and has very little dialogue,and yet retains the attention of the reader by the emotional threads of its charaeters and rheir thoughts.
1he plot of me novelas simple as ir is bears many similarities with Virginia Woolf\'s life,as she used her writing to understand and de al with unresolved issues with her family.To the Lighthouse is eonsidered today one of Virginia Woolf\'s best works,and a great example of modernist sensibilities.
