To the Lighthouse Time Passes, 1 Summary & Analysis

Summary
Analysis
“Well, we must wait for the future to show,” says Mr. Bankes on the terrace. Andrew, Prue, and Lily come up from the beach in the darkness. They turn out all the lamps in the house so that everything is dark except for Mr. Carmichael’s room, where he is awake reading Virgil.
Isolated, Mr. Bankes’ casual comment—presumably made to bow out of his political argument with Mr. Tansley—seems to describe the passage of time itself.
