📒Mrs Dalloway Broadview Edition ✍ Virginia Woolf
✏Mrs Dalloway Broadview Edition Book Summary : Mrs. Dalloway takes place on one day in the middle of June 1923. Its plot is seemingly thin: a middle-aged society hostess is having a party; she hopes the Prime Minister will attend; she reconnects with old friends from her youth. From these slimmest of premises a whole world unfolds. Of all of Virginia Woolf’s novels, it is Mrs. Dalloway that appears to speak most intimately to our own time. Selected contemporary reviews, both positive and negative, are included in the appendices of this edition, as are materials on the literary, political, medical, and educational contexts of the novel.
📒Virginia Woolf S Mrs Dalloway ✍ Molly Hoff
✏Virginia Woolf s Mrs Dalloway Book 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.

📒Methods Of Characterisation In Woolf S Mrs Dalloway ✍ Stella-Maria Stejskal
✏Methods of Characterisation in Woolf s Mrs Dalloway Book Summary : Bachelor Thesis from the year 2007 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 6.0 (CH), University of Bern, 25 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Virginia Woolf’s Mrs. Dalloway is one of the great classics of literature that still manages to fascinate readers. I propose that the subtle strength of observation and the creation of its characters contribute to the strength and provide the main point of interest in this novel. According to Abbott, “one truism about narrative is that it is a way we have of knowing ourselves”. Abbott emphasises characters, as well as action, as being among the principle components within narrative. He goes even further by arguing that“ it’s only through narrative that we know ourselves as active entities that operate through time”. This paper will examine in detail the creation of characters with reference to Mrs Dalloway. There are however many more methods of characterisation that elaborate on those three fundamentals and in this paper I will describe which methods Virginia Woolf uses to craft Mrs. Dalloway. I will begin with an overview of the stream-of-consciousness and free-indirect- discourse methods and then, by closely analysing the literary text, show how Woolf uses this technique as a mode of characterisation. Memory as a technique of characterisation will then be discussed followed by an examination of characterisation through perception and perspective. These two aspects however are strongly linked to, and can therefore be considered a subcategory of, the method of free-indirect-discourse. Particular attention will be given to showing how the perception of London serves Woolf as a tool for characterisation. Finally I will investigate the role of foil characters.

📒 Mrs Dalloway In Love ✍ Mieke Schüller
✏ Mrs Dalloway in Love Book Summary : Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,7, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (Seminar für Englische Philologie: Forschungs- und Lehrbereich Anglistik), course: Modern Fiction: "Ulysses" and "Mrs Dalloway", 12 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Mrs Dalloway,published in 1925, is widely accepted as a major work of 20thcentury English literature, because it introduced new stylistic approaches to writing and set basic aesthetic standards for the further development of literary modernism, thereby establishing Virginia Woolf as its leading female representative. Besides, the novel offers a subtle insight into the atmosphere in postwar London society, which was characterized by a feeling of overall destabilization and increasing isolation. Due to various causes, Great Britain’s political, economic, and social spheres had undergone fundamental changes during the previous decades: the rapidly increasing industrialization had completely transformed the working sphere, caused high unemployment rates and further fragmented class divisions, which culminated waves of political and social unrest; revolutionary findings in the natural and medical sciences put the traditional view of man into question and brought about a crisis of faith; beyond, the recent experience of the First World War and its aftermaths added considerably to an ‘atmosphere of gloom and doom’ in Great Britain. Altogether, the loss of belief into progress, the rise of scientific knowledge and the decay of traditional moral values resulted in a ‘disenchanted’ world view; the individual suffered from the growing atmosphere of coldness in society; he was “more isolated than ever before because he [could not] come in under an umbrella of common social forms, and thus escape from his sense of isolation” (Marder 64). Victorian guiding lines offered no adequate solutions for the demands of modern society anymore, and Virginia Woolf “was in accord with many of her contemporaries in rejecting Victorian values. The social code, she felt, had degenerated in most cases into mere formalism. She regarded Victorian morality as unrealistic and suspected those who professed it of hypocrisy” (Marder 47). Furthermore, her living at “a time when the hard-won victories of the suffragettes and women war workers were slowly being translated into law and affecting social attitudes” (Dowling 105) made her particularly interested in the emancipation’s cause, and in many of her essays and articles, Virginia Woolf questioned the traditional, socially constructed gender roles.
