Author(s): Virginia Woolf
As Mrs Dalloway works on the preparations for a dinner party, her thoughts throughout the day wander from memories of the past to interrogations about the present and lead her to assess the choices she has made in life and love. Her monologue interweaves with the account of the distress, on that same day, of the shell-shocked veteran Septimus Warren Smith, whose trauma and hallucinations end in tragedy, as the links between the two characters unfold.
The most famous member of the Bloomsbury Group, Virginia Woolf (1882 - 1941) was a novelist, essayist and critic, whose writings established her as one of Modernism's leading exponents, as well as a pioneering feminist. Her most famous works include To the Lighthouse and Mrs Dalloway.
