about

A brand new series of five of Woolf's major works, in beautifully designed hardback editions On a June morning in 1923, Clarissa Dalloway is preparing for a party and remembering her past. Elsewhere in London, Septimus Smith is suffering from shell-shock and on the brink of madness. Their days interweave and their lives converge as the party reaches its glittering climax. Here, Virginia Woolf perfected the interior monologue and the novel's lyricism and accessibility have made it one of her most popular works.

From Our Editors

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.
