WITH INTRODUCTIONS BY VALENTINE CUNNINGHAM AND CAROL ANN DUFFY

Review:

Clarissa Dalloway is civilised--without the ostentation of a socialite, but with enough distinction to attract them to her parties. She finds excess offensive, but surrounds herself with the highest quality and has an abhorrence for anything ugly or awkward. Mrs. Dalloway is as much a character study as it is a commentary on the ills and benefits society gleans from class. Through Virginia Woolf, we spend a day with Clarissa as she interacts with servants, her children, her husband, and even an ex-lover. As she plans and executes one of her celebrated parties, she reveals inner machinations incongruous with her class-defined behaviors, that ultimately enable her to transcend them.

Review:

" Mrs Dalloway contains some of the most beautiful, complex, incisive and idiosyncratic sentences ever written in English, and that alone would be reason enough to read it. It is one of the most moving, revolutionary artworks of the twentieth century" (Michael Cunningham, author of The Hours)

"A beautiful piece of writing" (Will Self Guardian)

"I think To The Lighthouse and Mrs Dalloway are sheer magic" (Eileen Atkins Daily Express)

"Virginia Woolf was one of the great innovators of that decade of literary Modernism, the 1920s. Novels such as Mrs Dalloway and To the Lighthouse showed how experimental writing could reshape our sense of ordinary life. Taking unremarkable materials - preparations for a genteel party, a day on a bourgeois family holiday - they trace the flow of associations and ideas that we call "consciousness"." ( Guardian)

Book Description Vintage. 1 Paperback(s), 2004. soft. Book Condition: New. In Virginia Woolf's masterful 1925 portrait of one day in a woman's life, Clarissa Dalloway is preoccupied with the last-minute details of a party she is to give that evening. In her mind, however, she is flooded with remembrances and met with the realities of the present, and Woolf explores the hidden springs of thought and action at work within her. "Mrs. Dalloway was the first novel to split the atom," writes Michael Cunningham, whose Pulitzer Prize–winning The Hours pays the work more than a passing nod. "Woolf insisted that [a novel] could locate the enormous within the everyday. The novel as an art form has not been the same since." 172. Bookseller Inventory # 62460
