Mrs Dalloway
Mrs Dalloway | Virginia Woolf
Virginia Woolf's singular technique in Mrs Dalloway heralds a break with the traditional novel form and reflects a genuine humanity and a concern with the experiences that both enrich and stultify existence. Society hostess, Clarissa Dalloway is giving a party. Her thoughts and sensations on that one day, and the interior monologues of others whose lives are interwoven with hers gradually reveal the characters of the central protagonists. Clarissa's life is touched by tragedy as the events in her day run parallel to those of Septimus Warren Smith, whose madness escalates as his life draws toward inevitable suicide.

This book was good enough to read twice. It‘s safe and mostly fun to read, aside from one well respected man that had a tragic demise. This book was feminist in ways we under appreciate now due to the passage of time and change. Who gets the beloved Clarissa?

I saw the contemporary ballet triptych Woolf Works last night, adapting three of her novels. What an incredible show. The sections based on Mrs. Dalloway and The Waves were very emotionally intense. The section based on Orlando was perfectly bizarre. At different points they voiced over excerpts from her letters. It was so good. ♥️

I read this book twice. It is safe and well written. It was mostly fun to read, aside from a man that I felt bad for that was close friends with Clarissa. There are a few men trying to compete for her early on. It is trying to be feminist in the early twentieth century when women had less rights than men. I intend on reading the sequel!

Another book I was supposed to read at uni that was surprisingly enjoyable when I got to it 25 years late.
Woolf introduces us to a cast of characters, all of whom revolve around Clarissa Dalloway.
Woolf‘s writing is wonderful, although I expect it is a little lost in audiobook form. I loved the way she let us in to the inner monologue of many characters, with their repetition and leaps of topic. And I loved Clarissa.

This book was okay. It is something that I probably wouldn't read again. This is the third book I completed for #JoyousJanuary readathon hosted by @Andrew65 I rated this book a 3 out of 5 stars. I listened to the audiobook.

I‘m just not a fan of Virginia Woolf‘s style. This is beautifully written with detailed descriptions from the perspective of various characters, but I was again disappointed by the lack of plot. I didn‘t especially care about any of the characters except for the story of Septimus and Rezia, and theirs is just sad.

I read most of this on #SerialReader but also listened to an #audiobook version. It was easier to follow the characters in print.

This is the second book by Virginia Woolf that I've tried. And I'm sorry to say I just don't like her writing energy. At points it felt frantic and chaotic and I had to put all my mind-power to work to stay with the story.
I just feel that I've worked way too hard for this little book.

I was dreading reading this for Brit lit because Virginia Woolf is lowkey too stream of consciousness for my liking/understanding. It was genuinely one of the most confusing things I‘ve ever read. But when I did understand it it was actually really lovely and it had some amazing quotes

I erroneously expected a quick read, but this was dense! I struggled to get in, so did a little bit of research & then found it somewhat easier going. I think studying it, doing a buddy read or for Bookclub would‘ve helped. Interesting for me to be reading this (for the first time) when I am around the age of the main characters. Somewhat glad to see they were all still leading rich & complicated lives even in 1925. A sad, complicated little book!

Robotswithpersonality
Mrs. Dalloway | Virginia Woolf
post image
Mehso-so

Thought I'd be safe with a short classic but this was DENSE. It's a little blurred by the stream of consciousness narrative, but there is an endless array of sharp observations about humanity in the individual and as a group, about society itself and how it grinds people down. What struck me most was the heartbreaking reality of a writer with first hand experience of how poorly mental health conditions were treated at this period in history. 1/?

Robotswithpersonality How suffocating living under a narrow range of expectations is; how suffocating it is to know/discover you'll only be 'loved' if you behave a certain way, show the right interests, associate accordingly, equally as oppressive a notion for both men and women; how suffocating to have another cling to you as their only possibility of happiness because they don't consider they have any ability to pursue actions which should make themselves happy. 2/?
1y
Robotswithpersonality Written in 1925 at the epicenter of the 'British Empire' so be on the lookout for every unenlightened, offensive sentiment that came with that era. The sapphic romance references were as impressive in their honesty as they were saddening in their brevity. 3/4
1y
Robotswithpersonality If I weren't scrambling for sensemaking in run on sentences I may have been more captivated by the descriptions. If I knew London, I might have more kinship with the intimate placement of various characters throughout this day. 4/4 1y

Intimate in that the reader is able to view a first person perspective in a thought by thought analysis of the main characters and their psychological response to their environment , thoughts, and people around them. By getting into the everyday minutiae and the innate response of the mind depending on one‘s psychological makeup displaying differing emotions, perspectives, and mindset or diagnosis for that matter. That being said,

Pip2 I can‘t say that I really enjoyed the novel enough to pick it up again, but if your one that enjoys getting into the heads of others, this one is for you. 1y

When you are re-reading Mrs dalloway and this time you wonder who was the queen (and the prince of Wales) at that time, and you have to go to Wikipedia because that was before The crown times (the Queen was Queen Mary, Great mother of queen Elizabeth, and the prince of Wales was Edward, future king that married for love...) maybe I need a notebook of all I learned because of books ;)

(Yesterday's entry) #OnThisDay in 1925 Mrs Dalloway was first published. Woolf wrote the novel in hand bound journals in her garden shed, dating each day's work like a diary as she went. She modeled Clarissa Dalloway on her childhood friend Kitty Manxe, a socialite who died after falling over her staircase banister. The novel sold so well, it paid for a bathroom to be installed in the Woolf house, nicknamed "Mrs Dalloway's closet." #HistoryGetsLIT

I wanted to like this more than I did. I've read excerpts of it before that I really liked. It was somewhat stream of consciousness writing about several different characters through the course of a day. I think my timing of reading this is just off.

MittenGirlPeach So, I did love this book, I‘ll admit, but if you‘ve never watched the movie The Hours, I can‘t recommend it enough. It‘s transcendent, mesmerizing, all the adjectives. It embodies this book within three different stories. I need to watch it again. 2y

2. I couldn‘t think of anything then mrs dalloway popped into my head, for reasons I‘m not totally sure of. Maybe because I associate her with my grandparents too - they took me on day trips to the bloomsbury group‘s farmhouse near where they lived

Early mornings with Mrs. Dalloway continue as I read for #SharReadathon.

I was thoroughly confused by the cover at first. But, ever since Clarissa has mentioned Sally, it just makes more sense. I am 30 pages in and so far Clarissa remembering Sally is the most readable part of the book, that is to say, I didn't have to go back and reread the same lines twice for it to make sense. It reads like revelation of one's mind to the reader. I look forward to the few minutes I get to spend in Mrs. Woolf's company each morning.

I really want to love this novel. Virgina Woolf is such a well regarded author that I feel stupid by not really jiving with what is supposed to be her most accessible novel. But I started this book on the first and I have only read 50 pages in almost two weeks, most of which I have skimmed half heartedly. Is it time to give up and move on? Does it get better? Maybe if I tried audio??

tenar I felt I needed to read it in longer sittings because of the style of writing, and if it‘s not interesting enough for you to do that, I doubt it will get any more enjoyable as it goes on. If it helps, I‘m new to Woolf and have actually found her nonfiction much more accessible than her fiction! 2y
Nutmegnc It‘s really dry and you have to dig to understand important things. Partly I just kind of didn‘t like her personality. I read it and I understand why folks think it‘s important but I wouldn‘t say I “enjoyed it”. 2y
Vansa I wouldn't say tis is her most accessible, I would recommend 'To the lighthouse', as far more accessible. I agree, this is not the most easy to read novel! 2y
batsy I agree with what @tenar said, it's best read in longer chunks and with as few interruptions as possible. If it's still not winning you over then perhaps it's just not one for you. I found Mrs. Dalloway hard to get the first time I read it but I found a way in to Woolf with To the Lighthouse, so that might be something to try :) 2y

I finally picked Mrs. Dalloway up after falling in love with Woolf‘s essay On Being Ill. This novel‘s stream of consciousness is like what living is like, for me at least, where the clock chime pulls me from a memory, and a character is stumbling into the biggest questions while just waiting to cross the street. Somehow so relatable while incredibly specifically set in London, in 1923, in the shadow of the Great War. I liked this a lot! #Bookspin
