A masterpiece from Virginia Woolf, this is the story of Clarissa Dalloway, the ebullient wife of a Member of Parliament at the end of the Second World War. While preparing for an evening party her old lover returns from India, while in another part of London Septimus Warren Smith is going mad from shell shock. Mrs. Dalloway is a day-in-the-life of the lost generation, a portrait of separate lives yearning for beauty and love lost during the war, while embracing life’s few precious moments.
