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 gives 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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Beautiful…somber…Law’s rhythmic, poetic reading renders it with finesse.” AudioFile
“Law admirably narrates…easily moving from one character to another and keeping listeners engaged…Through stream-of-consciousness prose, the characters ponder family relationships, art, literature, and the roles of men and women.” Booklist

Virginia Woolf (1882–1941) was born in London, the daughter of Sir Leslie Stephen, first editor of the Dictionary of National Biography. From 1915 when she published her first novel, The Voyage Out, Woolf maintained an astonishing output of fiction, literary criticism, essays, and biography. In 1912 she married Leonard Woolf, and in 1917 they founded the Hogarth Press. Woolf suffered a series of mental breakdowns throughout her life, and on March 28, 1941, she committed suicide.
