Virginia Woolf

The Voyage Out

Read by Juliet Stevenson


The Voyage Out is Virginia Woolf’s haunting tale about a naive young woman’s sea voyage from London to a small resort on the South American coast. Told in symbolic, lyrical and intoxicating prose, her outward journey begins to mirror her internal voyage into adulthood as she searches for her personal identity, grapples with love, and learns how to face life, intellectually and emotionally. Its profound insight into human nature, together with its sheer exquisiteness, will capture the imagination of the listener.

Juliet Stevenson’s narration is both compelling and soothing as Virginia Woolf’s first novel follows a small group of English men and women as they travel from London to the fictional island of Santa Marina in South America. The audiobook’s introspective qualities and attention to the female identity create a fascinating picture of Edwardian society. There is a certain fluid quality to the text that mirrors water, and Stevenson’s calm demeanour couples nicely with it. Yet she hardly puts the listener to sleep. Her vocal characterisations realistically capture each character, and she creates a strong contrast between the soft, musical female voices and the gruff, dominant male voices. Stevenson masterfully navigates Woolf’s prose as she and the listener embark on this literary journey.
