WITH INTRODUCTIONS BY FRANCES SPALDING AND ERICA WAGNER
A party of English people board the Euphrosyne bound for South America. Among them is Rachel Vinrace, young, innocent and wholly ignorant of the world of politics and society. She is a free spirit, half-caught, momentarily and passionately, by Terence Hewet, an aspiring writer. But their engagement is to end abruptly, not in marriage but in tragedy.
Published in 1915, The Voyage Out was Virginia Woolf's first novel.
Why buy from World of Books
Our excellent value books literally don't cost the earth
Done with something startling like genius - in its humour and its sense of irony, the occasional poignancy of its emotions, its profound originality * Observer * It is absolutely unafraid... Here at last is a book which attains unity as surely as Wuthering Heights, though by a different path -- E. M. Forster
