Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf, details a day in the life of Clarissa Dalloway in post-World War I England. Clarissa visits London in the morning, getting ready to host a party that evening. The nice day reminds her of her youth and makes her wonder about her choice of husband; she married the reliable Richard Dalloway instead of the enigmatic and demanding Peter Walsh and she had not the option to be with Sally Seton, for whom she felt strongly. Peter reintroduces these conflicts by paying a visit that morning, having returned from India.

Clarissa's party in the evening is a slow success, attended by most of the characters we have met in the book, including people from her past.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cori | 2/1/2014

    " I am not quite sure if I understood this book at all. Never the less, I enjoyed reading it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lyndsey | 1/15/2014

    " This is definitely not the kind of book most people will enjoy reading. It takes place over the course of a day exploring the activities and inner mental workings of several characters. The prose is not exactly straightforward, which will frustrate some readers. I enjoyed it, even though it was required reading for my English class. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rosie Dempsey | 12/24/2013

    " I was surprised by how much I like it. I've spent most of my life avoiding stream of consciousness because of my incredible disdain for Joyce. This book changed my mind (at least a little). While the plot isn't exactly fascinating, Woolf's prose is mesmerizing, and I have a great deal of respect for her complete mental submersion into each character in order to write their every thought. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Renee | 12/16/2013

    " Almost intensely poetic. Wolf employs the whole stream of consciousness idea and takes it to a new level in which you enter and move through different character's minds quite fluidly. The characters were meticulously developed and gave a great perspective of the English aristocrats' inner minds at that time. Now I just need to watch "The Hours." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sean | 12/2/2013

    " Possibly the most perfect piece of writing I have ever read. Oh, Ms. Woolf, I see grand times by the fire with you for many years into the future. I'm sorry for my delay in arriving at your party. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jane Marie | 10/12/2013

    " This is not my type of book. Probably not for the school library because it wouldn't interest the students. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tiffani | 8/22/2013

    " For its literary worth/interest I give it three stars, but in terms of enjoying it? I liked it ok. 2.5 stars. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Javad Soroush | 7/16/2013

    " j'ai lu dans la jour! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 AJ Ostrow | 6/22/2013

    " I suffered through every page for school, and I wouldn't wish that on anyone. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ginny | 5/31/2013

    " Woolf's stream of consciousness writing is quite different. I found it easy to follow and interesting to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 NicAlba | 4/6/2013

    " No. Wonderful in ideas and spirit but after awhile...idk. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lili | 3/19/2013

    " extraordinary! i love her smooth transition into different characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sara | 1/8/2012

    " I'll admit that I read this because of the movie "The Hours." It's about a woman getting ready to throw a party. But it's also so much more. It's a dissection of everyday life of all the random people she knows and comes across. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrea | 11/26/2011

    " one of my favorite books ever. i remember i first read it in kevin kopelson's joyce & woolf class at iowa and was very focused on mrs. dalloway's business with sally. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael | 6/26/2011

    " I don't know why I keep torturing myself with Virginia Woolf. In some ways her novels are beautiful and sad and, well, novel, but I just don't enjoy them "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashlee | 5/23/2011

    " This book was a great read. Definitely would recommend this if you enjoy reading something a little more difficult. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cherry | 5/18/2011

    " Streaming conciousness - my arse! lol "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debi | 5/15/2011

    " fascinating,sad-you can already see her leaning towards death "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ctb | 5/7/2011

    " Too tedious and demanding for too little return; however, some lines/ideas will knock your feet out from under you unexpectedly "
