Mrs.Dalloway by Virginia Woolf

Book Description

On a perfect June morning, Clarissa Dalloway fashionable, worldly, wealthy, an accomplished hostess sets off to buy flowers for the party she is to give that evening. She is preoccupied with thoughts of the present and memories of the past, and from her interior monologue emerge the people who have touched her life. On the same day Septimus Warren Smith, a shellshocked survivor of the Great War, commits suicide, and casual mention of his death at the party provokes in Clarissa thoughts of her own isolation and loneliness. Bold and experimental, Mrs Dalloway is a landmark in twentieth-century fiction and a book that gets better with each reading.With an Afterword by Anna South.

Books By Author Virginia Woolf

Liberty by Virginia Woolf Liberty, Paperback (June 2017)

Freedom and enfranchisement. Something anarchical which pushes at boundaries. Each of these rich avenues of meaning are bound up in the word 'liberty'. This book explored liberty via Virginia Woolf's novels like those in the feminist polemic of A Room of One's Own, or a whimsical account of roaming the streets of London.

Waves by Virginia Woolf Waves, Paperback (October 2016)

A poetic novel that begins with six children playing in a garden by the sea and follows their lives as they grow up and experience friendship, love and grief at the death of their beloved friend Percival.

Room of One's Own and Three Guineas by Virginia Woolf Room of One's Own and Three Guineas, Paperback (October 2016)

Offers a witty, urbane and persuasive argument against the intellectual subjection of women, particularly women writers. This title is also a passionate polemic which draws a startling comparison between the tyrannous hypocrisy of the Victorian patriarchal system and the evils of fascism.

UK Kirkus Review » Clarissa Dalloway spends a day in London reflecting on her life as she prepares for a party. Her reverie is set off by the imminence of her daughter's adulthood. This is a classic text on women and Virginia Woolf at her finest. Mrs Woolf's work was to an extent a conscious revolt against fiction based on over-precise chronicling of detailed events of which the Victorian novelists were such ardent exponents. She substituted the continuousness of experience and the imprecision of characters who take on different lights according to varying circumstances. Mrs Dalloway (1925), where everything wobbles under the changing light of a single day, is a satisfactory example of her technique. Her impressionism does not prevent the image of an early aeroplane pulling an advertising slogan across the London sky remaining one of the most vivid in the fiction of the 1920s. Review by Lord Jenkins of Hillhead, whose work includes 'The Chancellors' and 'A Life at the Centre' (Kirkus UK)

Author Biography - Virginia Woolf

Virginia Woolf was born in 1882, the youngest daughter of the Victorian writer Leslie Stephen. After her father's death, Virginia moved with her sister Vanessa (later Vanessa Bell) and two of her brothers, to 46 Gordon Square, which was to be the first meeting place of the Bloomsbury Group. Virginia married Leonard Woolf in 1912, and together they established the Hogarth Press. Virginia also published her first novel, The Voyage Out, in 1912, and she subsequently wrote eight more, several of which are considered classics, as well as two books of seminal feminist thought. Woolf suffered from mental illness throughout her life and committed suicide in 1941.
