Virginia Woolf set out to write an unconventional novel and succeeded although since she wrote we have read so many unconventional novels that it seems tame In her introduction to the edition I read Maureen Howard writes If ever there was a work conceived in response to the state of the novel a consciously modern novel it is Mrs Dalloway She may have been influenced by Ulysses because all the action occurs in one day Church bells mark significant events In turn this marking of the day influenced The Hours a book based on Woolf s life by Michael Cunningham But unlike in Joyce s work this is not an ordinary day True it centers on what we would now call a cocktail party Mrs Dalloway lived for those and hosted them freuently but it s also the day when a former flame of hers the fire on his part not hers returns from five years in India And it s also a day when one of the characters we follow commits suicide His doctor arrives at the party and announces this to everyone as soon as he s inside the door now there s a downerThrough her reflections and that of several other characters we learn the details of Mrs Dalloway s life She s 52 pale a bit sickly attractive enough but not beautiful We learn of her husband a nice man a government bureaucrat whose career has peaked he will never be a Minister She worries about him having a business lunch today with another woman friend of hers and Mrs Dalloway was not invited Of her daughter she worries that she is being unduly influenced by the religion of her female tutor Catholicism And of course she worries about meeting the old flame he still loves her after 30 years a marriage and various affairs True love or arrested development The book published in 1925 is also a time capsule of daily life in London in the early post war years WW I of course A time when horses had been replaced by cars As we follow her around town in her preparations we see the hustle and bustle of the city the grocers the shop girls the crazies in the park A good book It makes you think about life and death You can t ask for than that Her language is also fun When is the last time you were whelmed Not overwhelmed just plain old whelmed What s a Holland bag Even on the web apparently no one knows

What does the brain matter said Lady Rosseter getting up compared with the heart Mrs Dalloway Virginia WoolfI didn t realize this until the final page but at its heart MRS DALLOWAY is a love story I absolutely loved this book Mrs Dalloway is a complex compelling novel It is wrongly described as a portrait of a day in the life of Clarissa Dalloway this is not correct Mrs Dalloway is the hub that connects the spokes the characters of Woolf s novel but there is no main character What MRS DALLOWAY is is a wonderful study of a day in the life of its principal characters The novel enters into the consciousness of the people it takes as it subjects creating a powerful effect With Mrs Dalloway Woolf created a visceral and unyielding vision of madness and a haunting descent into its depthsMrs Dalloway follows a set of characters as they go about their lives on a normal day The eponymous character Clarissa Dalloway does simple things she buys some flowers walks in a park is visited by an old friend and throws a party She speaks to a man who was once in love with her and who still believes that she settled by marrying her politician husband She talks to a female friend with whom she was once in love Then in the final pages of the book she hears about a poor lost soul who threw himself from a doctor s window onto a line of railingsSeptimus Smith Shell shocked after his experiences in World War I he is a so called madman who hears voices He was once in love with a fellow soldier named Evans a ghost who haunts him throughout the novel His infirmity is rooted in his fear and his repression of this forbidden love Finally tired of a world that he believes is false and unreal he commits suicideThe two characters whose experiences form the core of the novel Clarissa and Septimus share a number of similarities In fact Woolf saw Clarissa and Septimus as like two different aspects of the same person and the linkage between the two is emphasized by a series of stylistic repetitions and mirrorings Unbeknownst to Clarissa and Septimus their paths cross a number of times throughout the day just as some of the situations in their lives followed similar pathsClarissa and Septimus were in love with a person of their own sex and both repressed their loves because of their social situations Even as their lives mirror parallel and cross Clarissa and Septimus take different paths in the final moments of the novel Both are existentially insecure in the worlds they inhabit one chooses life while the other chooses deathWoolf s stream of consciousness style allows readers into the minds and hearts of her characters She also incorporates a level of psychological realism that Victorian novels were never able to achieve The everyday is seen in a new light internal processes are opened up in her prose memories compete for attention thoughts arise unprompted and the deeply significant and the utterly trivial are treated with eual importance Woolf s prose is also enormously poetic She has the very special ability to make the ordinary ebb and flow of the mind singMrs 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 As she studies Septimus and his deterioration into madness we see a portrait that draws considerably from Woolf s own experiences Woolf s stream of consciousness style leads us to experience madness We hear the competing voices of sanity and insanityWoolf s vision of madness does not dismiss Septimus as a person with a biological defect She treats the consciousness of the madman as something apart valuable in itself and something from which the wonderful tapestry of her novel could be woven
