Synopsis

Rediscover one of Virginia Woolf's greatest works in this beautiful new gift edition from Vintage Classics.

Mr and Mrs Ramsay and their eight children have always holidayed at their summer house in Skye, surrounded by family friends. The novel's opening section teems with the noise, complications, bruised emotions, joys and quiet tragedies of everyday family life that might go on forever. But time passes, bringing with it war and death, and the summer home stands empty until one day, many years later, the family return to make the long-postponed visit to the lighthouse.

One of the great literary achievements of the 20th century, To the Lighthouse, is at once an intensely autobiographical and universally moving masterpiece about changing relationships and attitudes amongst the early 20th-century middle class.

'To The Lighthouse is one of the greatest elegies in the English language, a book which transcends time' Margaret Drabble

'Thrillingly introspective' The Independent
