Significance of 3 Sections of
the Novel
‘The Lighthouse’
Sections
The Window
Time Passes
The Lighthouse
INTRODUCTION
The passage of time, for example, is
modulated by the consciousness of the
characters rather than by the clock.
The events of a single afternoon
constitute over half the book, while the
events of the following 10ys are
compressed into a few dozen pages.
Many readers of ’To the Lighthouse’ ,
especially those who are not versed in
the traditions of modernist fiction, find
the novel strange and difficult.
Its language is dense and the structure
amorphous.
Compared with the plot-driven
Victorian novels that came before
it, To the Lighthouse seems to have
little in the way of action. Indeed,
almost all of the events take place
in the characters’ minds.
This style allows the subjective
mental processes of Woolf’s
characters to determine the
objective content of her narrative.
Section l – “The Window”
 Part One spans
approximately seven hours
and takes up more than
half the book. It’s set at
the Ramsay’s summer
home, where the Ramsey's
and their eight children are
entertaining a number of
friends and colleagues.
 His mother, Mrs. Ramsay,
holds out hope that the
weather will be good
tomorrow so they can go to
the Lighthouse, but Mr.
Ramsay is adamant that the
weather will be awful.
Charles Tansley.
(Continued…) “The Window”
 Numerous small bits of action
occur. For example, after
lunch, Mrs. Ramsay takes pity
on Mr. Tansley and asks him to
accompany her into town. By
the end of the trip, Mr. Tansley
is in love with the much older,
but still beautiful, Mrs. Ramsay
(by the way, she is 50).
(Continued…) “The Window”
 Later, as she sits in a
window and reads a fairy
tale to James, Mrs. Ramsay
remembers that she must
keep her head down for Lily
Briscoe’s painting.
(Continued…) “The Window”
 To the end of the part, Mrs.
Ramsay gets out of it by
smiling at him and telling
him that he was right – the
weather will be bad
tomorrow and they will not
be able to visit the
Lighthouse.
(Continued…) “The Window”
Section ll – “Time Passes”
Section ll – “Time Passes”
 Part Two compresses ten years
into about twenty pages.
 All the traditionally important
information in a story (read:
what happened to the
characters) is briefly imparted in
brackets. We learn that Mrs.
Ramsay, Prue Ramsay (daughter)
and Andrew Ramsay (son) have
died.
 Mrs. Ramsay died at night;
Prue died in childbirth
(after first getting
married); and Andrew died
when a shell exploded in
France. Oh, right.
(Continued…) “Time Passes”
Section lll – “The lighthouse”
It takes place at the summer house
and begins with Mr. Ramsay and two
of his children, Cam and James,
finally going to the Lighthouse.
Lily completed the panting that she
never finished.
Lily never married, but remained good
friends with William Bankes.
Section lll – “The lighthouse”
Significance of the section ‘Lighthouse’
Lighthouse section instructs us that
Nothing is ever only one thing.
How Lighthouse appeared to James when he
was a boy and how it appears to him now that
he is a man.
Seems something else and meaning something
Else is the case in everyday life.
This section reveals us the Dual aspect of life.
Conclusion
 Window:
Not a transparent but a separating sheet
of glass between reality and Mrs. Ramsay.
Imperfection of our Knowledge.
Distance an extraordinary power.
 Time Passes:
Ravages of war, man against man.
Mortal Man is helpless against Nature, the Prominent
and dominant force.
 Lighthouse:
Molding nature of Human after achieving something.
Contradictions, dual aspect in life. Destinations that
seem surest are, sometime, most unobtainable.
