Mrs Dalloway (Vintage Classics Woolf Series)


Immerse yourself in the profound inner world of Clarissa Dalloway as she navigates the complexities of post-war English society in Virginia Woolf's celebrated novel, Mrs Dalloway. Over the course of a single day, Woolf masterfully weaves a tapestry of Clarissa's thoughts and memories, unveiling her disillusionment with the shallow conventions that govern her existence. As Clarissa prepares for a party she is hosting, her stream of consciousness transports readers on an introspective journey that explores themes of mental illness, sexuality, and the lingering trauma of World War I.

Virginia Woolf, a pioneering figure of modernist literature, crafts a daring and experimental narrative that defies traditional storytelling. Her poetic prose and innovative use of the stream-of-consciousness technique revolutionized the art of the novel, cementing her place as one of the most influential writers of the 20th century. With Mrs Dalloway, Woolf invites readers to peel back the veneer of societal norms and delve into the depths of the human psyche, offering a profound meditation on the nature of existence itself.
