Tonight we'll be reading from, "The Voyage Out" by Virginia Woolf, first published in 1915. In the story Rachael Vinrace embarks for South America on her father's ship and is launched on a course of self-discovery in a kind of modern mythical voyage. The novel also introduces Clarissa Dalloway, who would become the central character of Woolf's later novel, "Mrs Dalloway."
