The Voyage Out is Virginia Woolf's haunting tale about a naive young woman's sea voyage from London to a small resort on the South American coast. Told in symbolic, lyrical and intoxicating prose, her outward journey begins to mirror her internal voyage into adulthood as she searches for her personal identity, grapples with love, and learns how to face life, intellectually and emotionally. Its profound insight into human nature, together with its sheer exquisiteness, will capture the imagination of the listener.
