MRS. DALLOWAY

By (author)VIRGINIA WOOLF

 200

Clarissa Dalloway is giving a party. As she makes preparations she relives her life in a continuous monologue which reveals a disturbed and unhappy woman under the guise of a lively and successful person. A war veteran Septimus Smith is on the brink of madness and is nearing an inevitable suicide. As the party nears its climax these apparently detached stories impalpably entwine in a masterly study of human experience. Mrs. Dalloway is one of the top hundred English novels of the twentieth century. Woolf’s To the Lighthouse is another great work on the all important list.

Author Description

One of the leading British writers and intellectual of the twentieth century Virginia Woolf was born in London on 25 January 1882. She began publishing her work to both general and critical acclaim in her early twenties and became associated with Bloomsbury Circle, an influential group of English modernist writers, intellectuals, philosophers and artists in early twentieth century. Best remembered for the lyrical quality of her prose Woolf wrote many novels and essays all bearing the modernist trends of the Circle. Her works have been translated in over 50 languages around the world. However, she was not very lucky in health matters and suffered from the bouts of mental illness throughout her life. She perished by drowning during one such attack on 28 March 1941.
