What is her writing style? Woolf often employs stream-of-consciousness in her writing. Why do you think that she does this through multiple and shifting perspectives in this book?

What does this accomplish? Ramsey is described by Mrs. Ramsey and Lily with violent and domineering imagery.

What does this say about him in relation to the two women? What does Woolf want to say about relationships between women and men? Time is a major theme in this novel. How does Woolf and her characters approach the passage of time? Virginia Woolf cared about conventions in literature; she certainly knew them extremely well.

The house-guests were some of the greatest names then writing, such as Henry James and George Eliot; relatives were friends of Thomas Carlyle.

She, and all her circle, became the focus for the modernist movement, and especially the Bloomsbury Group, named after the area of London in which she and her family lived.

Between them, they founded the Hogarth Press and published work that suited them by the likes of T. Eliot, C.

Day Lewis, Robert Graves and E. And of course the works of Virginia herself. To The Lighthouse sits almost exactly in the middle of her publishing life, appearing in after Mrs Dalloway and before Orlando.

The story is told from different perspectives by different characters, but the movement between these narrators is implicit rather than explicit; the language and the ideas move between them seamlessly; and each person expresses the layers and digressions of thought and imagination as they explain what they see or are thinking.

The plot itself, though by no means irrelevant, is not the driving force.
