“Mrs Dalloway said she would buy the flowers herself.” Thus begins the chronicle of a June day in the life of Clarissa Dalloway, a fictional high society hostess in post World War I London, a day in which her routine preparations for an evening party take on immense significance and collide with matters of life and death. Published in 1925 by the Hogarth Press this is a novel in which Virginia Woolf perfects her distinctive style, presenting her reader with the “luminous envelope of consciousness” as the mind itself plays over the surfaces of reality, as life itself adds day to day. Original, thoughtful and a work of art, so much to discuss!
