Summary, etc.: The Voyage Out opens as a group of lively, eccentric British tourists embark on a sea voyage from London to a resort in South America. The focus soon turns to Rachel Vinrace, a shy, awkward young woman headed on a voyage of self-discovery through love, illness, and, finally, death. A wry and haunting novel in which the everyday events of life are rendered with convincing and elaborate subtlety, The Voyage Out is a starkly realistic exploration of the inner lives of Woolf's characters, and a stunning psychological portrait of one young woman growing toward intellectual and emotional maturity. It stands out as a classic of modern British literature.
