To the Lighthouse is at once a vivid impressionist depiction of a family holiday, and a meditation on a marriage, on parenthood and childhood, on grief, tyranny and bitterness. Its use of stream of consciousness, reminiscence, and shifting perspectives gives the novel an intimate, poetic essence, and at the time of publication in 1927 it represented an utter rejection of Victorian and Edwardian literary values.

Phyllida Law's flexible voice and splendid precision do complete justice to Woolf's lyrical prose with its difficult twists and turns, changes of pace, tone and syntax. She makes accessible and immediate all the complex psychology.
