To The Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf ranked # 15 on The Modern Library's Top 100 Novels list as selected by its Board Members.

To The Lighthouse By Virginia Woolf - Just The Good Stuff To the Lighthouse (1927) is a novel by Virginia Woolf. The freely, multiple discursive tale centers on the Ramsay family and their visits to the Isle of Skye in Scotland between 1910 and 1920. The story is seen through the perspective of an omniscient narrator.

To the Lighthouse follows and extends the tradition of modernist novelists like Marcel Proust and James Joyce, where the plot is secondary to philosophical introspection, and the stream of consciousness prose can be winding and hard to follow.

The novel includes little dialogue and almost no action; most of it is written as thoughts and observations of the major characters. Foremost among these characters are Lily Briscoe, whose observations on the Ramsay family form the backbone of the book, and Mrs. Ramsay.
