Cardiff BookTalk: Virginia Woolf

Virginia Woolf’s To The Lighthouse

About the book:

“The complexities of marriage and familial relationships are explored in Virginia Woolf’s brilliant stream of consciousness novel.

While vacationing on the Isle of Skye, the youngest of the Ramsay children, James, eagerly anticipates a visit to a lighthouse, however, Mr. Ramsay believes the weather will not be fair enough to allow for the excursion, and his dismissal of James’s excitement creates tension with Mrs. Ramsay. Ten years later, and after the end of the First World War, when the Ramsays return to the Isle of Sky and complete their abandoned outing, James and his father experience a rare—and possibly fleeting—moment of reconciliation. ”
