Synopsis:

The Voyage Out (1915) is the story of a rite of passage. When Rachel Vinrace embarks for South America on her father's ship she is launched on a course of self-discovery in a modern version of the mythic voyage. Virginia Woolf knew all too well the forms that she was supposed to follow when writing of a young lady's entrance into the world, and she struggled to subvert the conventions, wittily and assiduously, rewriting and revising the novel many times. The finished work is not, on the face of it, a 'portrait of the artist'. However, through The Voyage Out readers discover Woolf as an emerging and original artist: not identified with the heroine, but present everywhere in the social satire, the lyricism, and the patterning of consciousness.


Review:

"This English novel gives promise in its opening chapters of much entertaiment. Later, the reader is disappointed. That the author knows her London in its most interesting aspects there can be no doubt. But aside from a certain cleverness--which, being all in one key, palls on one after going through a hundred pages of it--there is little in this offering to make it stand out from the ruck of mediocre novels which make far less literary pretension."

New York Times Book Review, 06/13/1920

Review:

"For all its tragic interest, THE VOYAGE OUT is not low-keyed; it even has a slight buoyancy of tone, as if clear perception itself brought a continual zest to its writer. Mrs. Woolf has the diversity of power which makes the great writer of narrative."

C.M. Rourke, New Republic, 05/05/1920

She is a free spirit half-caught, momentarily and passionately, by Terence Hewet, an aspiring writer who she meets in Santa Marina. But their engagement is to end abruptly, and tragically. Virginia Woolf s first novel, published in 1915, is a haunting exploration of a young woman s mind, signalling the beginning of her fascination with capturing the mysteries and complexities of the inner life.
