John Green teaches you about Virginia Woolf’s modernist novel, To the Lighthouse.
Let’s face it. You’re not reading To the Lighthouse for the plot. There’s not a whole lot of plot, unless you count the tension about the beef stew.
You’re reading it because it’s a pioneering literary work that explores point of view, narrative flow, and the nature of art, among other things.
You’re going to love it. I mean, part of the story is told from the perspective of a house.
