  • Description

    A highly introspective story in two parts about the eponymous Mrs. Dalloway, Mrs Dalloway is an intriguing tale about the life of the British woman in the early 20th Century.

    Summary Of The Book

    Mrs Dalloway is highly introspective book about a single day in the life of the eponymous Mrs. Clarissa Dalloway. It follows her thoughts and actions through from the morning and through the day, as she prepares for a party in the evening. It begins with a nostalgic revisiting of her youthful days, which leads her to question her choice of husband. She had married Richard Dalloway instead of her more enigmatic option, Peter Walsh, and remembers her dearest friend, Sally Seton.

    While this reflection is going on, another drama unfolds as Septimus Warren Smith, a World War I hero, has hallucinations of his friend Evans, who was killed in the war. Smith commits suicide, and Clarissa comes to know of this suicide during her party. The events which led up to her party and her own thoughts forge an exceptionally candid portrait of the mind of a woman in pursuit of her happiness.

    Mrs Dalloway, which is a compilation of two separate short stories, is one of Woolf’s most renowned works. It is written in Stream of Consciousness style and has often been compared to the other great novel of this style, James Joyce’s Ulysses. Added to this, the liberal and highly inventive use of voice and narrative techniques makes Mrs Dalloway a masterpiece of twentieth century modernist literature.

    Author Info
    • Virginia Woolf (Adeline) 1882-1941, was the daughter of Sir Leslie Stephen and his second wife, Julia Duckworth. Most of her early education was provided by her parents at their Hyde Park Gate home. After her father’s death in 1904, Virginia moved to 46, Gordon Square, Bloomsbury, with her sister Vanessa and her brothers Thoby and Adrian. Virginia’s new house was the original meeting-place of the famous literary group ‘The Bloomsbury Group’ which included people like Leonard Woolf, Lytton Strachey, D. Grant, E.M. Forster, J.M. Keynes and Virginia herself along with her brothers and sister Vanessa Bell formed the nucleus of the group. In 1905 she began to write for the Times Literary Supplement, a connection which lasted almost until her death. She married Leonard Woolf in 1912 and completed her first novel, The Voyage Out in the same year, which was published in 1915. She had meanwhile experienced one of the bouts of acute mental breakdowns from which she had suffered since her mother’s death in 1895. Virginia and Leonard Woolf founded The Hogarth Press in 1917 and published their first book titled Two Stories (‘The Mark on the Wall’ by Virginia, and ‘Three Jews’ by Leonard) and later on published most of the Virginia Woolf’s major works as well as works by other literary writers of that time like T.S. Eliot, E.M. Forster and Katherine Mansfield as well as the earliest translations of Freud. After her first novel, The Voyage Out (1915), she worked through the transitional Night and Day (1919) to the highly experimental and impressionistic Jacob's Room (1922). From then on her fiction became a series of brilliant and a fresh way of presenting the relationship between individual lives and the forces of society and history. Many of her experimental techniques (such as the use of stream consciousness or interior monologue) have been absorbed into the mainstream of fiction. Her novels have been particularly appreciated from the 1970s onwards by the new school of feminist criticism. A Room of One’s Own (1929), with its still more radical sequel, Three Guineas (1938) are now established feminist classics. Her major novels include Mrs Dalloway (1925), the historical fantasy Orlando (1928), the extraordinarily poetic vision of The Waves (1931), the family saga of The Years (1937), and Between the Acts (1941). She was also a literary critic and journalist of distinction. She was also a tireless letter-writer and diarist. Her critical essays were published in several collections, including The Common Reader (1925; second series, 1932), The Death of the Moth (1942), The Captain’s Death Bed (1950), and Granite and Rainbow (1958). A volume of short stories, A Haunted House (1943) collects earlier stories and some not previously published. Her letters, edited by Nigel Nicolson and J. Trautmann in six volumes (1975-80), are a dazzling, at times malicious evocation of a world of literary and social friendships and intrigues, with a cast list that includes Strachey, the Sitwells, Ottoline Morrell, R. Fry, and many others associated with Bloomsbury Group. Her diaries, edited in five volumes by Anne Olivier Bell and A. McNeillie (1977-84), show an invaluable picture of her creative method. In March 1941 Virginia Woolf had the final attack of mental illness which drove her to suicide; she filled her pockets with stones and drowned herself in the River Ouse near her home at Rodmell in Sussex.

    A Lyrical Beauty

    Yes, I called this book a beauty because it really is. Mrs. Woolf weaves magic and poetry, blended into each other, so well in this book! I would suggest that the readers enjoy this book in one sitting. If you are looking for something thrilling and exciting which keeps you turning pages, shoo. This ain't what you are looking for.
    This book comes at a very good price and I am very satisfied with this purchase. It's good in quality, binding, printing and every other aspect. Me gusta.

    A smooth sailing

    The novel reading was like floating on a smooth tide. The storyline sails between the past and the present. The themes explored were quite outrageous for it's time. A masterpiece by the author. The stream of consciousness technique is aesthetically applied. The plot has no characters that can be called as villainous. The situation is in fact baffling for all the characters. Must read for all age groups.
