Written at the height of Woolf’s career, To The Lighthouse chronicles the Ramsay family, their children, and their guests including the independent Ms. Lily Briscoe. Through Mrs. Ramsay, she reflects upon the traditional Victorian woman, both competent, but also trapped by the copious needs of others laid upon her shoulders. An important feminist text. The binding is bright. Scattered foxing to preliminary pages and edges of the textblock. Small professional repair to top spine of dustjacket, not affecting the overall look of this attractive copy.
