Overview

From the Foreword By Philip Dossick:

The thrill of reading Virginia Woolf’s The Voyage Out is the feeling of looking into a whirlpool just as something utterly extraordinary and unexpected materializes for the first time.

It is so for all her novels.

The language itself dazzles: vivid, evocative, poetic language, that challenges the best of James Joyce, with Woolf's gift for inner dialogue—the lies her characters relentlessly tell themselves—which in turn reveal them to us.

The Voyage Out has it all: life, death, and the evanescence of time. Love, fear, solitude, and death again—the subjects float by like parasols in autumnal twilight. Her characters are strikingly real. Nothing much happens; yet in the tragic futility, the absurdity, the divine pathos, the delicate beauty of contemplation, all of life happens.

The Voyage Out is one of Virginia Woolf’s rare and genuine masterpieces; an enchanting work of artistry deserving of the label in a thousand different ways. It can be found on countless lists of the finest novels of the 20th century, and is one of Virginia Woolf's major achievements. It is considered one of her greatest works after Mrs. Dalloway and To The Lighthouse.

    you get what you pay for

    This book was scanned, and it shows: typos on every page, making it very hard to read. I think I'll pay for a proof-read book next time, even if it's out of copyright...
