Abstract

In order to understand Virginia Woolf's vision of reality as well as her aesthetics, To the Lighthouse is of key importance, for in the double nature of the author's vision is related to two opposite approaches to truth: the masculine one and Mrs. Ramsay the feminine; how he emphasises the "changing" (evanescence, time) and she, the "solid" (permanence, timelessness). Furthermore, we can clearly see the relationship between Lily Briscoe's role as an artist and Virginia Woolf's aesthetics. We also see how Lily's painting symbolises the androgynous work of art: in it an equilibrium is established between Mr. and ;rs. Ramsay, symbols of te evanescent and eternal aspects of reality.
