"TO THE LIGHTHOUSE has not the formal perfection, the cohesiveness, the intense vividness of characterization that belong to MRS. DALLOWAY. It has particles of failure in it. It is inferior to MRS. DALLOWAY in the degree to which its aims are achieved; it is superior in the magnitude of the aims themselves. For in its portrayal of life that is less orderly, more complex and so much doomed to frustration, it strikes a more important note, and it gives us an interlude of vision that must stand at the head of all Virginia Woolf's work."Woolf, Virginia is the author of 'To the Lighthouse', published 1989 under ISBN 9780156907392 and ISBN 0156907399.
