Overview: Woolf’s exploration of perception viewed through the lens of a family in the early 20th century.
What they’re saying in the Prepwise staff room:
Chris: “On the surface, it is the story of one family’s trips to Scotland. It is, however, much more about the inner workings of the mind. This is a very tough read and many people give up on it. Don’t. The ideas of human interactions are brilliant.”
Ethan: “When I first read To The Lighthouse in college I struggled with the complex narration. However, by the end of the novel, I really grew to appreciate Woolf’s stream of consciousness style and her groundbreaking innovation.”
