Analysis of Women Images in to the Lighthouse

Jingrui HUI


Through the analysis of the two women Mrs. Ramsay and Lily in To the Lighthouse, this paper makes a comparison between the two figures. It is found that they are different in many ways but at the same time have something in common. The two women represent the two sides of women. Only these two sides are united, the woman is completed.
