On the glistening surface of Virginia Woolf’s groundbreaking novel is the Ramsay family, a seemingly stable group of characters, but a group that is ultimately subject to the same alterations and losses that come with the passing of time. Set at the Ramsays’ summerhouse over two September days, ten years apart, Woolf’s influential landmark of twentieth-century literature explores the hopes, frustrations, and small moments of grace and change that permeate everyday life. First published in 1927, To the Lighthouse provides a quintessentially modernist, kaleidoscopic focus on the characters’ interior lives, but it also offers an enduringly wise and sensitive portrayal of human fragility. In Woolf’s novel, the absurdity, mundanity, and tenuousness of human life is uniquely evident—and uniquely beautiful as a result.

Revised edition: Previously published as To the Lighthouse, this edition of To the Lighthouse includes editorial revisions.
