Summary : On a perfect June morning, Clarissa Dalloway – fashionable, worldly, wealthy, an accomplished hostess – sets off to buy flowers for the party she will host 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 shell-shocked 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, Virginia Woolf's Mrs Dalloway is a landmark in twentieth-century fiction and a book that gets better and better with every reading. This elegant Macmillan Collector’s Library edition of Virginia Woolf's modernist classic features an afterword by editor and publisher Anna South. Designed to appeal to the booklover, the Macmillan Collector's Library is a series of beautiful gift editions of much loved classic titles. Macmillan Collector's Library are books to love and treasure.

Summary : Mrs. Dalloway is a novel by Virginia Woolf that details a day in the life of Clarissa Dalloway, a fictional high-society woman in post-World War I England. It is one of Woolf’s best-known novels. Created from two short stories, Mrs Dalloway in Bond Street and the unfinished The Prime Minister, the novel addresses Clarissa’s preparations for a party she will host that evening. Mrs. Dalloway is linguistically inventive, but the novel also has an enormous amount to say about its characters. Woolf handles their situations with dignity and respect.

Summary : First published in 1925, “Mrs Dalloway” is a novel by Virginia Woolf that chronicles a day in the life of Clarissa Dalloway, an English aristocrat living after the Great War. Amongst her most famous works, “Mrs Dalloway” deals with such themes as mental illness, existentialism, feminism, and bisexuality. A classic novel that deserves a place on every bookshelf and is not to be missed by fans of Woolf's seminal work. Adeline Virginia Woolf (1882–1941) was an English writer. She is widely hailed as being among the most influential modernist authors of the 20th century and a pioneer of stream of consciousness narration. Woolf suffered numerous nervous breakdowns during her life primarily as a result of the deaths of family members, and it is now believed that she may have suffered from bipolar disorder. In 1941, Woolf drowned herself in the River Ouse at Lewes, aged 59. Other notable works by this author include: “Pattledom” (1925), “A Room of One's Own” (1929), “The Captain's Death Bed: and Other Essays” (1950). Read & Co. Classics is proudly republishing this classic novel now in a new edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.

Summary : Mrs Dalloway is not your typical day-in-the-life story, but it is a day-in-the-life story - a revolutionary one at that. It covers one day for Clarissa Dalloway (with some other central characters, too) as she prepares for a big party that will take place that evening. As the novel begins, Clarissa strolls through Westminster, her neighborhood in London, on her way to a flower shop. Along the way, a few big things go down: she runs into an old friend named Hugh Whitbread, an explosion comes from a diplomatic car on its way to Buckingham Palace, and an "aeroplane" does a little skywriting. (Wow, that's way more than what typically happens to us on the way to get flowers.) When she gets back from her errand, an old friend and former suitor, Peter Walsh, shows up unexpectedly. They're happy to see each other, but there's still some tension. Peter is clearly still in love with Clarissa, and she feels like he judges her for the decisions she's made - among them marrying the conservative but loyal Richard Dalloway (instead of him). Numerous flashbacks - including one of Clarissa's kiss with a girl named Sally - fill in the story as it happened years ago at her family's country home, Bourton. Feeling desperate over his own unfulfilling life, Peter gets weepy and asks Clarissa if she really loves Richard. Before she can answer, Elizabeth (her daughter) interrupts, and Peter heads out to Regent's Park. We then move to the perspective of Septimus Warren Smith, a shell-shocked World War I veteran who saw Evans, his friend and officer, killed in war. Septimus' wife, Lucrezia, is trying to distract him as they wait for an appointment with Sir William Bradshaw, a mean old psychiatrist. The third person omniscient narrator takes us back to Septimus' life before the war: he was an aspiring poet, read Shakespeare, and loved Miss Isabel Pole. After the war and Evans' death, Septimus becomes emotionally numb - he can't feel anything. On a total whim, he becomes engaged to Lucrezia, whose home he's staying at in Milan, Italy. Back in the present day, Septimus is driven deeper into madness, including some crazy hallucinations. Lucrezia is also miserable, homesick for Italy, and tired of taking her husband to various soulless doctors. Whereas Dr Holmes thinks Septimus is just "in a funk," Dr Bradshaw diagnoses that he "lacks Proportion." Neither acknowledges the fact that the war has impacted Septimus (which seems pretty obvious to us). While Clarissa rests and prepares for the party, Richard has lunch with the impressively rich and British upper crust Lady Bruton. After lunch, Richard wants to go home and tell Clarissa he loves her, but he cops out and just gives her flowers instead. Clarissa actually cherishes the independence she has in her marriage, knowing that she could never have that with Peter. In the meantime, Clarissa's daughter goes off shopping with her friend Miss Kilman, whom Mrs Dalloway hates. And by hates, we mean despises, loathes, and absolutely cannot stand. Meanwhile, Septimus and Lucrezia wait at their apartment for Sir William Bradshaw, who is coming to take Septimus to a psychiatric home. The couple shares a rare moment of joy, but before Bradshaw enters the apartment, Septimus throws himself out the window and is impaled on the fence outside. He would rather die than have the doctor steal his soul. Yikes. When Clarissa's party begins, she circulates, making sure to pay attention to every guest - especially the prime minister (um, yeah, we'd do the same). Peter and Sally patiently await some attention from Clarissa as they talk about their memories of Bourton. A late arrival, Sir William Bradshaw, shows up with his wife, who announces that Septimus has killed himself. Clarissa is annoyed that Lady Bradshaw mentioned death at her party, but she is envious of Septimus' ability to embrace the moment. Finally, she returns to the party and her appearance fills Peter's heart with joy.

Summary : Virginia Woolf in Mrs Dalloway (1925) primarily focuses on Clarissa Dalloway's multifaceted identity. To label and accordingly analyse Virginia Woolf's Mrs Dalloway as solely an epitome of modernist novel would be reductionistic and would not reveal its multidimensionality and multifacetedness; therefore, multidisciplinarity, a poststructural approach, was adopted to open up the existing disciplines to new perspectives, to shed more light on the problematic of subjectivity from different disciplines simultaneously. The book attempts to offer a vantage point of standing above and seeing the interdependency of language, discourse, power, ideology, ethics and the body in construction of Clarissa Dalloway's labyrinthine subjectivity and challenges the essentialist notion that identities in general, and gender identities in particular, are inevitable, natural and fixed. All the chapters share the insight of social constructionism; that Clarissa's identity, far from being given in advance for her to step into, emerges over time through discursive and other social practices.

Summary : In this companion book to Mrs. Dalloway, Molly Hoff illuminates much that is hidden in Virginia Woolf's celebrated and often misunderstood novel. Mrs. Dalloway is brimming with references, both overt and subtle, to other works of literature, historical events, and goings-on in Woolf's ownlife. Invisible Presences serves, as Hoff states in her preface, "as a kind of reference manual for commentary on individual passages that may be of interest." Virginia Woolf's Mrs. Dalloway: Invisible Presences will doubtless provide a wealth of material to enrich lesson plans and syllabi for thosewho, as Hoff puts it, "profess literature." It however has its own beginning, middle, and end to guide any reader. Thus it serves as two books at once. It is hoped it will lead to a deep understanding of Mrs. Dalloway and Woolf's method in general.
