Description

Mrs. Dalloway, perhaps Virginia Woolf’s greatest novel, follows English socialite Clarissa Dalloway as she prepares for a party in post-World War I London. Four-time Oscar nominee Annette Bening (American Beauty, The Kids Are All Right) performs Woolf’s stream-of-consciousness style of storytelling brilliantly, exploring the hidden springs of thought and action in one day of a woman’s life.

When we first meet Clarissa Dalloway, she is preoccupied with the last-minute minutiae of party-planning while being flooded with memories of long ago. Clarissa then examines the realities of the present as the story travels forwards and back in time and in and out of different characters’ minds.

Mrs. Dalloway is daring not only in its stream-of-consciousness form, but also in its content. Woolf’s depiction of Septimus Warren Smith brings to light the ugly and often ignored truth of how the brutality of war can drive men mad. We also get to see in depth how our main protagonist, Clarissa Dalloway, suffers from her own form of psychological damage: the more subtle, everyday oppression of English society.

Clunky

The only good thing about this much-vaunted novel is its capacity to build up a person's appetite to read Ulysses again. Just consider what would happen if you took Septimus and Lucrezia out of the picture. How slight it would be. Exploitation much?

A Classic Really Well Done

What did you love best about Mrs. Dalloway?

Annette Bening may seem an odd choice for this very English novel, but she does an absolutely fantastic job. This is the very kind of book that works well in an audio version because you want to go slowly to savour the language.
