To the Lighthouse

Listen to a sample

What to expect

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.

Critics Review

  • “Beautiful…somber…Law’s rhythmic, poetic
    reading renders it with finesse.”

  • “Law admirably narrates…easily moving from
    one character to another and keeping listeners engaged…Through stream-of-consciousness prose, the characters ponder family
    relationships, art, literature, and the roles of men and women.”
