Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Virginia Woolf's stream-of-consciousness masterpiece follows Clarissa Dalloway through the course of a day as she prepares to host a party in the evening. The beautiful June day brings back memories from her happy schoolgirl years. She wonders about her choice of husband--was she wrong to have married reliable Richard Dalloway, refusing the exciting Peter Walsh, and what was the place of her schoolgirl love? The story travels back and forth in time, densely weaving the texture of an intelligent, upper class woman's life lived within the strictures of post-WW I England.

Synopsis:

The action in this novel is restricted to the events of one day in central London, punctuated by the chimes of Big Ben. It is a richly-textured impression of the cross-currents of sophisticated social life.

I never read Mrs. Dalloway in HIgh school when most people are forced to read Virginia Woolf and I'm glad I didn't. Reading the book as a middle aged woman, I could appreciate the sensations and experiences of Mrs' Dalloway's day that bring back memories of her lost youth. The memories of her past romance are particularly moving. And it is so beautifully written. So there's no reason to be afraid of Virginia Woolf!
