Choice Review

Kelley provides the reader with convincing perceptions of the connections and analogies of elements in To the Lighthouse to Virginia Woolf's experiences and acquaintances, as well as to the cultural and social milieu that constituted her world. We are shown how the novel can be seen as Woolf's attempt to "come to terms" with her parents (as represented by the Ramseys of the novel) and with her own childhood. Here art is used, according to Kelley, to resolve emotional conflicts within herself and within her created characters. This study is blessed with critical sense and careful scholarship, as well as with a highly readable style. It should be made available to any serious student of Virginia Woolf, graduate and upper-division undergraduate levels. P. M. Gulley North Texas State University
