Summary

Lily Briscoe falls asleep listening to the sea. Augustus Carmichael reads. When he finishes, he thinks the house looks "much" like he remembers. In the morning Lily opens her eyes "wide" and sits "bolt upright."

Analysis

The familiarity of the guests (Lily's fixation with the sea, Mr. Carmichael's reading) shows their comfort at returning despite time and loss. Their return to the house will force them to come to terms with the absence of Mrs. Ramsay in her domain.
