To the lighthouse / Virginia Woolf ; foreword by Patricia Lockwood ; introduction and notes by Hermione Lee ; edited by Stella McNichol.

Woolf, Virginia, 1882-1941 (author.). McNichol, Stella, (editor.). Lockwood, Patricia, (writer of foreword.). Lee, Hermione, (writer of introduction.).


"The serene and maternal Mrs. Ramsay, the tragic yet absurd Mr. Ramsay, and their children and assorted guests are on holiday on the Isle of Skye. From the seemingly trivial postponement of a visit to a nearby lighthouse, Woolf constructs a remarkable, moving examination of the complex tensions and allegiances of family life and the conflict between men and women."-- Provided by publisher.
