WITH INTROUCTIONS BY EAVAN BOLAND AND MAUD ELLMAN The serene and maternal Mrs Ramsay, the tragic yet absurd Mr Ramsay, together
with their children and assorted guests, are holidaying on the Isle of Skye. From the seemingly trivial postponement of a
visit to a nearby lighthouse Virginia Woolf constructs a remarkable and moving examination of the complex tensions and allegiances
of family life. One of the great literary achievements of the twentieth century, To the Lighthouse is often cited as Virginia
Woolf's most popular novel.
The Vintage Classics Virginia Woolf series has been curated by Jeanette Winterson,
and the texts used are based on the original Hogarth Press editions published by Leonard and Virginia Woolf.
