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.”
