Description

"Of such moments, she thought, the thing is made that remains for ever after. This would remain." So reflects the beautiful, middle-aged Mrs Ramsay, mother of eight, as she surveys her family and guests at her dinner table, and sees their fleeting harmony, a fleeting reflection of eternity. 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. For the children, it is an earthly Paradise. 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. "To The Lighthouse" is one of ten World's Classics by Virginia Woolf, and includes an introduction and notes to provide guidance for readers new to this author.show more
