Abstract

Gabler reconstructs and analyses the creation of Virginia Woolf's novel To the Lighthouse with a focus on the third section,'The Lighthouse'. The novel's structure and publication history are discussed alongside the rich sources on the text's genesis, (auto)biographical materials and Woolf's drafts.These drafts, although only few of them survive, shed light on the early development of her prose. Gabler's analysis shows how Woolf departed from her personal experience traces of which are visible in the earliest drafts and gradually transformed the material of memory into fiction, thus endowing her work with artistic autonomy.
