Description

Virginia Woolf's semi-autobiographical novel, based on her recollections of family holidays in Cornwall, is split into three sections. In the first, the gracious and imaginative Mrs. Ramsay and her self-centered and absurd husband are preparing for a dinner party, where the guests include a philosopher, a young couple and painter Lily Briscoe (based on Virginia Woolf's sister Vanessa). In the second section the story moves on to after the war and we discover that Mrs. Ramsay, her son and one of the guests have died. In the last section Lily Briscoe finally achieves what she has been trying to do with her painting and Mr. Ramsay and the children reach the Lighthouse-a trip planned in the first section that only now reaches fruition.
