Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"A strange, tragic, inspired novel . . . as poignant as anything in modern fiction." — E. M. Forster

This acclaimed novel marked the debut of one of the twentieth century's most brilliant and important writers. In Virginia Woolf's captivating exploration of a young woman's growing self-awareness, the events of a shipboard journey to South America parallel the naive heroine's inner quest. Her experiences, from a first kiss to a surprising flowering of real love, may inspire the reader to reflect on gender roles in society, love among intellectuals, and the strivings and sorrows of life.

The Voyage Out offers an excellent introduction to Woolf's writing. Not only is it the first of her novels, it is also one of the most accessible. Less formally experimental than Woolf's later books, but highly representative of her poetic style and innovative techniques, it offers a moving depiction of the thrills and confusion of youth.

Synopsis:

THE VOYAGE OUT — Virginia Woolf's provocative first novel — brought her acclaim. It is a tale of doomed loved and self-discovery, a modern mythic voyage; a lyrical social satire that describes a woman's rite of passage.
