Woolf used this novel as a social commentary on the treatment of people with mental illnesses- particularly what we now know as post traumatic stress syndrome. The author uses the first world war, and the conditions the soldiers lived and fought in to highlight the neglect of this syndrome, and to educate the reader on how the post traumatic stress affected not only the soldiers who experienced the immense hardships, but thw effect it had on their marriages and spouses.
