From the Publisher. To the Lighthouse is the most autobiographical of Virginia Woolf's novels. It is based on her own early experiences, and while it touches on childhood and children's perceptions and desires, it is at its most trenchant when exploring adult relationships, marriage, and the changing class-structure in the period spanning World War I.

Peter Mendelsund

The book that, of all the books I’ve read, comes the closest to accurately reflecting this slippery world of ours. It is the book that feels, when one is reading it, the most like what it feels to be alive. Lesson(s) learned: Hold a mirror up to life.

Time passes; all is transient; Mr. Ramsay dies in a parenthesis; only beauty survives.
