About the Author
Born as Adeline Virginia Stephen in Kensington, London, in 1882, Virginia Woolf was the daughter of the eminent critic and founding editor of the Dictionary of National Biography Leslie Stephen and Julia Prinsep Duckworth Stephen. Raised by her parents in their literate and well-connected household, she was influenced by the Victorian literary society and the prominent British intellectuals of her time including Henry James, George Henry Lewes and James Russell Lowell.
Virginia began writing in her teens. Her reviews were published anonymously in the Times Literary Supplement and other journals. the Voyage Out, originally titled Melymbrosia, was her first novel published in 1915 by Duckworth. She developed her art and went on to publish a number of novels including Night and Day (1919), Jacob’s Room (1922), Mrs. Dalloway (1925), to the Lighthouse (1927), Orlando (1928), the Waves (1931) and the Years (1937).
A Room of One’s Own (1929) and Three Guineas (1938) are among her famous non-fiction books. She drowned herself on March 28, 1941, by walking into the River Ouse with her overcoat pockets filled with stones. Her body was found on April 18, 1941.
Virginia Woolf’s works have been translated into more than fifty languages. She continues to remain one of the significant writers of the twentieth century.

One wonders how different the writing of one author can be from another. After you have read books after books you feel that you have seen it all. And then comes this ! To the Lighthouse is masterpiece of the English Literature. The innovative technique of Stream of Consciousness (or as some argue, Subjective Consciousness ) is riveting. Virginia Woolf seems to have known all that could be known about the human mind, how it thinks, chooses to act or not to, how far it can reach, and having been there, how briskly it can fly over to a different world, a different time, a different imagination.
The book may be a bit difficult for beginners but is certainly delectable to all those who have dared to read Woolf before. She was an extraordinary writer who has turned a story with almost zero action into one where you never feel the need for any.
The dining table scene in The Window
Time Passes - this is unbelievable
Mr Ramsay's struggle in reaching from Q to R in The Window (pg. 30-31)
Journey to the lighthouse in The Lighthouse
'With stars in her eyes and veils in her hair....' (pg. 15)
'To want and not to have, sent all up her body a hardness, a hollowness, a strain. And then to want and not to have- to want and want- how that wrung the heart, and wrung it again and again!' (pg. 146)
'....and in its stead, something clear as the space which the clouds at last uncover- the little space of sky which sleeps beside the moon.' (pg. 43)
Conclusion: Read it for the language. Read it for the beauty of human relationships it explores. Read it because this is one of a kind !
