Book #46: To the Lighthouse

To the Lighthouse

by Virginia Woolf

To the Lighthouse has been called the most important work of “modernist” literature, a genre that dispenses with traditional forms of storytelling and literary realism, and instead centers on the randomness of life an the rejection of cultural norms. Woolf’s story follows the Ramsay family and their visits to an island in Scotland over the course of ten years. The book does not have a set narrator, but relates the events of the story through the perceptions and thoughts of each major character.

For the project, I will read an electronic copy of To the Lighthouse. At my standard font size, the book is 182 pages in length.
