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.

What an astounding piece of writing. I am grateful for it, and feel enriched by it. V. Woolf achieves extraordinary things in this work, and I will go back to it several times before I can hope to see inside of it all. Phylidda Law's performance is absolutely beautiful and in my opinion adds a tremendous amount to the experience. Heartfelt thanks to all involved.
"Excellent in all ways"
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.
