day in her life. In To the Lighthouse 
the stream-of-consciousness
technique is present as before but
its presence is subtler, more diffused. 
The author’s scrutiny falls,
not on one but on many personalities. 
Now, in her brilliant offensive 
on the human soul, she does
not perpetrate an open advance.
Weaving, stalking, spying from
thickets, she discovers the nature 
of her prey. The actual capture 
she leaves to those who, reading

Toads and saucepans, poppies and 

her book, are her companions in
the chase.

The Author in her critical 
studies, The Common Reader, made
it apparent that her analytical 
abilities outweighed her previous
achievements in fiction, Jacob’s 
Room, Night and Day. But Mrs. 
Dalloway and this book mark her as
one who has not only mastered the
novel but extended its function.

Mrs. Woolf is the youngest
daughter of the late Sir Leslie
Stephen. She married Leonard
Sidney Woolf, literary Editor of
the Nation and Athenaeum, in 1912.
They live at Hogarth House, an old
place in Richmond, spending their 
quiet time alike at gardening and
fine writing and printing.
