Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
7 Hrs. 50 Min.


Mrs. Dalloway is hailed as the greatest work of fiction by English novelist Virginia Woolf and one of the most innovative literary works of the first half of the 20th century. This vivid novel is prized for its unique view into a human consciousness--an exquisitely detailed portrait of one day in the life of Clarissa Dalloway--and its provocative interplay between past and present. It is a rich novel of relationships, choices, consequences, and the inevitable passing of time. Of Woolf's highly influential body of work, Mrs. Dalloway is the book credited with transforming the modern novel. The story of one day in the life of middle aged socialite Clarissa Dalloway begins in the morning. She is buying flowers for her party. As she makes festive decorations and prepares her home for the neighbors and old friends who will soon arrive, she is overcome by memories of her youth and the distant past. This wondrous work exhibits Woolf writing at her most brilliant, and, without question, assures her legacy in the great canon of English literature.
