In Mrs Dalloway and To the Lighthouse, Virginia Woolf’s experiments with narrative technique and multiple perspectives take the novel into uncharted waters, exploring individual consciousness, interweaving lives and unspoken memories and desires in ways that are at once challengingly innovative and refreshingly direct. Yet these are not mere technical experiments: both novels are moving explorations of family relationships and conflicts, of the shattering effects of the First World War and the very nature of artistic creation.
