This is an attempt at a spatial reading of Virginia Woolf’s novel To the Lighthouse. The methods of approach to the novel are through narratology and intertextuality. By using narratological concepts from Gérard Genette, Shlomith Rimmon-Kenan, Jakob Lothe and Morten Nøjgaard the spatial structure of the novel will be revealed. The narratological tendency towards favouring the analysis of the succession of narrative events, that is, narrative time, will be challenged by the attempt at applying narratological concepts to narrative space. Key concepts are focalization, internal and external space, structural key elements, and the notion of an imaginary world. The intertextual function will be explored through attention to the structural intersections between texts, and the idea of the ambivalent word. The intertextual method of approach to the text of To the Lighthouse will reveal connections to other texts, both on the level of the word, and on the level of literary structure. The other texts that will be considered for their textual interlacing with the novel are Woolf’s novels Mrs Dalloway and The Waves, in addition to poems by Keats and Tennyson. This reading will cover: Spatial concerns in relation to the overall structure of the novels and the contrasts between the three different parts; the nature of the space which the novel constructs; how characterization can become a spatial matter; the position of the narrator, and the contrast of narrative mood and voice; the placement of objects and their importance as structural elements; considerations of how a regular object becomes an art object; and last the significance of Romantic structure in TL.
