not yet rated|write a review
Edition enrichie comportant une préface de Bernard Brugière et un dossier sur le roman. Le roman, publié en 1925, raconte la journée d'une femme élégante de Londres, en mêlant impressions présentes et souvenirs, personnages surgis du passé, comme un ancien amour, ou membres de sa famille et de son entourage. Ce grand monologue intérieur exprime la difficulté de relier soi et les autres, le présent et le passé, le langage et le silence, le mouvement et l'immobilité. La qualité la plus importante du livre est d'être un roman poétique, porté par la musique d'une phrase chantante et comme ailée. Les impressions y deviennent des aventures. C'est pourquoi c'est peut-être le chef-d'œuvre de l'auteur - la plus grande romancière anglaise du XXe siècle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from "One could not be in love twice" Virginia Woolf once asked herself: “How can one weigh and shape dialogue till each sentence tears the shingles in the bottom of the reader’s soul?” I am not aware of her answer to this question, but I think Woolf was quite successful, if she attempted to answer it with her immortal classic, “Mrs. Dalloway.” At first it seems as though Mrs. Dalloway cares for nothing but her party, but this terse book much more profound than mere ramblings and on-goings of the upper-class English society. It is set in 1920s London, merely years after the horrible suffering of the First World War. Everything happens in the novel in one ordinary day – from the morning when Mrs. Dalloway goes to buy her flowers to her evening party. We meet different characters throughout London, we feel their feelings, try to grasp their ideas, and wonder what was it all for? Or for that matter, what is this all for? Why precisely are we here? But perhaps nothing stands out more than Woolf’s writing; her words dance rhythmically on every sentences and makes an unforgettable lyric. At first, I read eight pages, then went back again to the first page to begin again. It was as though I wanted to consume all these words. The reason why I withheld from giving five stars is because it lacks dialouge; hence Woolf's otherwise beautiful prose can be in the danger of becoming dry. Nevertheless, very highly recommended to all the lovers of English literature and young, aspiring writers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The book to read! The timeless classic Mrs. Dalloway is named a classic for a reason. Brilliance comes easily to the astound author Virginia Woolf who keeps the audience gripped in this remarkable page turner. Woolf, known for her very unique form of writing wonderfully titled as “stream of consciousness” makes the reader feel as if they are in their own little world enveloped in the lives of Mrs. Clarissa Dalloway and the ever popular Mr. Warren Smith. The novel is centered on Mrs. Dalloway and the much anticipated party in which she is preparing for. Through out her shopping excursion we are introduced to her past, present and future. Mrs. Dalloway is the narrative. This newly founded approach puts the reader in a much different time frame and position that he/she is used to. It gives the reader a sense of not knowing, and finds themselves questioning the facts. Today, readers are used to being the omniscient reader who has been given all of the facts, but Woolf has taken that away from the reader to something raw and fresh. I recommend everyone to read this novel for several of reasons. I believe everyone should experience Ms. Woolf’s style in writing in Mrs. Dalloway at least once, if not more, in their lifetime. The story itself is a classic and although my not be for everyone, has highlights that cannot be ignored. Finally, I ultimately recommend my fellow literature enthusiast to read this book because it has this remarkable talent to spark something in you that you never thought was there in the first place. Once you have experience one work of Virginia Woolf, you will be craving more.
