To the Lighthouse is one of the greatest literary achievements of the twentieth century and the author's most popular novel. The serene and maternal Mrs. Ramsay, the tragic yet absurd Mr. Ramsay, and their children and assorted guests are on holiday on the Isle of Skye. From the seemingly trivial postponement of a visit to a nearby lighthouse, Virginia Woolf constructs a remarkable, moving examination of the complex tensions and allegiances of family life and the conflict between male and female principles. Annotated and with an introduction by Mark Hussey

On 26 December 1900, the vessel Hesperus arrived at Eilean Mor in the remote Outer Hebrides with relief lighthouse men and fresh provisions. Staffed by three keepers, the lighthouse had been in operation for a year, but it had been noted that no light had been seen from Eilean Mor for ten days. Upon arrival, the superintendent, Robert Muirhead, found the lighthouse to be completely deserted, and a subsequent search of the surrounding island failed to show any sign of what happened to the keepers. The last entry in the lighthouse logbook had been made on 15 December and contained a number of strange and distressing entries that offered clues as to the mental state of the men. One was reported to have been crying while another had become ‘very quiet’. And when it was revealed that the men’s oilskin coats were found to be missing and the clock in the lighthouse had stopped, inevitable theories surrounding the keepers’ fates were soon put forward. These included a giant wave washing them away, murder and suicide by the men themselves, and more esoteric explanations as Eilean Mor was believed to have mystical properties. In The Lighthouse, Keith McCloskey explores this mysterious and chilling story in depth for the first time and reveals a shocking conclusion.
