This paper describes how Woolf's entire novel is a study of the passage of time. It discusses how the author describes the effect of time on each of the primary characters. This paper focuses on the character of Mrs. Ramsay and explains how this character holds all the other characters together and how time seems to be centered on her.

From the Paper:

"Consider the narrative. The novel is divided into three sections. The first involves a day in the lives of the Ramsays and their summer home. The Ramsays have a beachfront home where they spend their summers. They also rent out some of the rooms to boarders. Mr. Ramsay is an intellectual and a philosopher perhaps one of the most influential of his time. The Ramsays have eight children: Nancy, Prue, Andrew, Rose, Roger, Jasper, Cam and James. Nancy has maternal instincts. Prue is stunningly beautiful. Andrew is a budding mathematician and intellectual. Rose is tomboyish and spends her time in sporting activities. Jasper is Rose's age-equal. He is the prankster in the family. Cam and James, one year apart, are the babies in the family."
