Review:


From the Back Cover:

"Mrs. Dalloway has branched into a book; and I adumbrate here a study of insanity and suicide: the world seen by the sane and the insane side by side--something like that. Septimus Smith?--is that a good name?--and to be more close to the fact than Jacob: but I think Jacob was a necessary step, for me, in working free. And now I must use this benignant page for making out a scheme of work." -- from The Diary of Virginia Woolf
Virginia Woolf's most intimate letters, journals, and essays surrounding the writing and publication of Mrs. Dalloway, including the novel itself and the companion book, Mrs. Dalloway's Party. Also included are essays by conteporary writers who have found inspiration in the work of Virginia Woolf. Now with a foreword and critical commentary by Woolf scholar Mark Hussey.
Virginia Woolf (1882-1941), one of the major literary figures of the twentieth century, transformed the art of the novel. The author of numerous novels, collections of letters, journals, and short stories, she was an admired literary critic and a master of the essay form. Mrs. Dalloway was first published in 1925.
