Seminar paper from the year 2017 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,7, Ruhr-University of Bochum (Philologie), course: Virginia Woolf, language: English, abstract: This term paper will deal with the discourse of marriage in "To the Lighthouse" and how it is criticised in the novel. A theoretical outline of the construct of marriage in the Victorian era will be presented in order to show how wives in particular were restricted by dominant gender roles of the Victorian era. In order to indicate that the ideology of Victorian marriage is refuted in the novel, the marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Ramsay will be analysed in detail. Furthermore, the character Lily Briscoe will be illustrated as an antagonist of Victorian marriage ideology since she consciously decides against marriage.

To the Lighthouse (5 May 1927) is a novel by Virginia Woolf. A landmark novel of high modernism, the text, centering on the Ramsay family and their visits to the Isle of Skye in Scotland between 1910 and 1920, skillfully manipulates temporality and psychological exploration. 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 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. The novel recalls the power of childhood emotions and highlights the impermanence of adult relationships. One of the book's several themes is the ubiquity of transience.

It was also chosen by TIME magazine as one of the one hundred best English-language novels from 1923 to present in 2005. Orlando (1928) - a semi-biographical novel based in part on her bisexual lover Vita Sackville-West, it is considered to be Woolf's most accessible work. A Room of One's Own (1929) - a long essay based on talks that Woolf gave at Cambridge. It is seen as a feminist text, with women writers needing to find a place in a tradition dominated by men.

Mrs Dalloway and To the Lighthouse have often been described as 'poetic' and 'difficult'. The essays in this book show how attentive readers can follow their stories and relate them directly to the 'real' world. Some work out 'who speaks'. Some explore the novels' debates about England in the 1920s: about power and imperialism and the War, about contemporary ideas of personal identity, and about women's lives. All demonstrate that new critical methods lead to active engagement with the texts.
