The book follows the Ramsay family and their endeavors. The family has been long planning to visit the lighthouse, but for certain reasons, the family can’t help but postpone its plans now and then. The story is a classic Victorian novel with three sections. Mr. Ramsay wants to become a philosopher, while Mrs. Ramsay wants the sense of permanence in their lives. On a different note, the female artist, Lily Briscoe, obsesses with her unfinished work. It is believed by the critics, that the book is a reminisce of the Woolf’s childhood memories, Mr. Ramsay is her father’s stand-in character, and the character of the female artist is Woolf’s stand-in character.
