Publisher Comments:

The Voyage Out (1915) is the story of a rite of passage. When Rachel Vinrace embarks for South America on her father's ship she is launched on a course of self-discovery in a modern version of the mythic voyage. Virginia Woolf knew all too well the forms that she was supposed to follow when writing of a young lady's entrance into the world, and she struggled to subvert the conventions, wittily and assiduously, rewriting and revising the novel many times. The finished work is not, on the face of it, a 'portrait of the artist'. However, through The Voyage Out readers discover Woolf as an emerging and original artist: not identified with the heroine, but present everywhere in the social satire, the lyricism, and the patterning of consciousness.

Synopsis:

This novel opens with a party of English people aboard a boat bound for South America. Among them is Rachel Vinrace, a young girl, innocent and wholly ignorant of the world of politics and society, books, sex, love and marriage. The author also wrote "Mrs Dalloway" and "A Room of One's Own".

lukas, November 20, 2014 (view all comments by lukas)
Woolf's first novel, published in 1915. While her fellow modernists Joyce, Pound, and Eliot were creating works dense with allusions and difficult language, Woolf, perhaps taking up the baton from Henry James, was committed to exploring human consciousness and psychology with a nuance and patience that few novelists had attempted before. "The Voyage Out" is more conventional than her later work and a little long at times, but has the seeds of her greatness. The Dalloways have a supporting role.
