The lighthouse symbolizes permanence and constancy, with its steady light that never ceases. The light produced by the lighthouse is a derivative symbol, representing the ability to emit energy and influence those around you. Mrs. Ramsay is the character that relies on the lighthouse as a symbol of permanence and also as a source of energy.

The light house symbolizes hope.

As Mrs. Ramsay looks from her window at the light house (after sending James to sleep) it appears to her as alternating strokes of light and dark.It symbolizes days and nights.Days and nights are further symbolized through a pack of cards in part 2 of the novel.

the lighthouse acts as a guideline in the novel.......
